We want to help explain the complications that can come with Parkinson’s disease, in a light, fun and entertaining way.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) November 04, 2014
Most Americans might not know the severity of Parkinson’s disease throughout the world. One million Americans and an estimated seven to 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease, pdf.org. Author Sierra Ann Hill has suffered from Parkinson’s disease and has an affiliation with Parkinson’s support groups, which influenced her new western love story thriller, to help raise awareness.
“Guitars and Gardenias” encompasses a strong female protagonist, Leah Hayes, who falls in love with a singer-megastar. Hayes possesses the terrifying, life-altering secret of having Parkinson’s disease and has to decide if she should reveal her problem to her new paramour, while also becoming the target of his maniacal stalker-fans’ jealously.
“This novel takes the readers though many twists and turns with different intriguing themes, such as love, illness, relationships, music and danger,” said Hill. “As the story unfolds the readers will enjoy how the characters begin to heal each other, each breaks through their individual barriers, drawing the reader in deeper.”
Hill is knowledgeable in Deep Brain Stimulation therapy—a topic of interest to Parkinson’s patients, and is looking forward to sharing the patient’s point-of-view. She hopes the character Hayes will encourage others who suffer from Parkinson’s disease and lift their spirits to enjoy and live life to the fullest.
“We want to help explain the complications that can come with Parkinson’s disease, in a light, fun and entertaining way,” said Hill. “I wrote the book to increase awareness and to encourage others with disabilities and inspire self-expression.”
