About the Author:

Alec Kalla is the author of the continuing Hank Eston mysteries begun in 1993 with Velvet(with M.J. Sullivan), Foul Play Press. He is a member of Mystery Writers of America, profiled in Who's Who in America, and lives near Conifer, Colorado.

Mr. Kalla was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 1997, underwent eight sessions of chemotherapy, and pronounced in remission. The next year, X-rays indicated that there was still insurance money to be had, and Mr. Kalla's remission certificate was revoked. Fortunately, a team of good doctors and nurses took him in for high-dose chemo- and radiation therapy, followed by a stem cell rescue-transplant. More than two years later, their skills have permitted Mr. Kalla to combine his talents with those of Andy Williamson, an artist, writer and cinema afficionado of the Rocky Mountains, to produce a book that truly lifts the sprits of cancer patients and survivors.
