Margaret Goss, Charlie and Mary Loschiavo’s daughter, lives in Wisconsin. She worked in health care and has a Master’s in Public Administration. “Nursing provided me with a good living but also material for this book featuring a nurse as the main character,” says Margaret. She spent nine years writing, often one sentence at a time. Her writing was done on an old laptop in the dining room, coffee shops and bookstores; on the bleachers at my kids’ hockey practices; and in her car during their soccer practices. Books that influenced her during the course of writing included “What Dreams May Come” by Richard Matheson, “This Present Darkness” by Frank Peretti, and “Into the Wild” by John Krakauer. Margaret returns to the reflections on faith and God written by Saint Therese of Lisieux, Thomas Merton, and Saint Theresa of Avila as all have had a significant impact on her and her writing.
