Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. An entertaining as well as informative true story about the author's battle to save her son's life–or at least his large intestine–from a very severe case of Crohn's disease. Sky Curtis's sometimes desperate, often hilarious, and always determined international quest for a treatment for her son's life-threatening Crohn's disease resulted in a new protocol for the treatment of this disease.
Sky Curtis is the author of three fiction books in the ROBIN MACFARLAND MYSTERY series—TRAPS (2019), PLOTS (2018), and FLUSH (2017)—published by Inanna Publications. Sky Curtis travelled extensively around Europe after graduating from university and then lived in rural Nova Scotia, where she had various poems published in established literary journals and her first play produced by CBC Halifax. After briefly living in England, she then moved to Toronto with her husband and supported her young family by ghost writing high school textbooks, designing educational software, writing magazine articles, teaching, script writing, and creating a syndicated children's column. Sky now divides her time between living in downtown Toronto, backwoods Nova Scotia, and Northern Ontario. She has authored over a dozen books and is passionate about social justice issues and the environment.Author City: TORONTO, ON CAN
