Las Vegas (PRWEB) May 24, 2013
iUniverse, the leading self-publishing imprint and marketing services provider for authors around the globe, is showcasing author Mary Ann Sheveland, author of Journey of My Heart, at the AARP 2013 Spring Life@50+ National Event & Expo being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center this May 30 – June 1.
In Sheveland’s memoir, Journey of My Heart, she shares a story written with love, humility, and a great amount of faith. It is an account of emotional courage, determination, and the desire to have the best quality of life in our allotted time. She chronicles the challenges faced when caring for a terminally ill spouse and the love that she and her husband shared during the good and the bad times of their crisis.
Journey of My Heart also tells how Mary Ann overcame grief using the tools of music, journaling, travel, and the various social activities she depended upon to put her in a positive frame of mind. She hopes to help illuminate the steps along the slippery road of a progressively worsening medical condition. Gradually, with every day, she became stronger, more independent, and at peace with her new life. She emerged from grief a completely different person; she is a survivor.
Mary Ann Sheveland grew up in a small, central Texas town and currently lives in east Texas. Her early love of music and mastery of the violin allowed her to play in the Austin, Las Vegas, and Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestras.
To receive a free, signed copy of Journey of My Heart by Mary Ann Sheveland, stop by booth 2133 on Saturday, June 1st, at the AARP Life@50+ Convention between 10:00 – 11:00 am. Supplies are limited.
