On the Brink of Risk - A Book You Wont Put Down

On the Brink of Risk is a fiction novel inspired in true events; it has a love story turned evil, hate and vengeance, intents to kill, negligence and malpractice at more than one hospital that almost lead to death, harassment and persecution by the political organizations and government officials as well as comments on everything the average citizen has to go through to endure everyday life in that Caribbean country.

It was written under the pseudonym of Nancy Cruz and writing was at first an intent to make a catharsis and finally put to rest everything that had been a load in the author's mind and life for too many years, she thought that was the only way to really start anew.

But after writing it she realized that it also carries a message. Many people around the world face an illness such as cancer and think that it is the end of the world for them, she survived it three times but that was the result of having faith, of being perseverant , of not sitting back at home when so many doctors told her she had nothing at all, of going from one doctor to another until finally one made the right diagnosis.Cancer is a menace, that's true, but anyone can make it if the right thing is done at the right time. In another aspect too many women go silently through what she went and accept it all, her story should tell them that they have to stand up for themselves, fight for themselves and their children because they deserve a quiet and happy life.

In the story Monika's husband talks the psychiatrist he had convinced her to see into giving her electroshocks so that she would forget the man who was her soul mate and had left behind to move back with him to protect her son's health. She forgot complete chapters of her life, forgot skills she had...but not that man! And anyway, standing up for herself and her children, knowing that she had the right to be herself and not a puppet, finally divorced him as soon as her son's health allowed it!

So you see how many healthy messages the book has! Don't forget them....you too deserve to be happy!

I'm an Accountant and a Bilingual Commercial Secretary graduated from an American College and University; a writer, songwriter, actress and singer. I am also a Translator/Interpreter.

I started to write short stories when I was 9 years old, my mother took charge of having them published in magazines. I sang opperettas and pop music on radio and TV when I was a teenager. I got married when I was 20 years old, have a son and a daughter and got divorced when I was 34 years old. I spent two years acting, performing main characters on theatres when I separated from my husband although I've been writing songs for 5 years by then. I went back on stage to sing when I was over 50 and did it with a high level of acceptance in three of the most prestigious night clubs of my country. I survived cancer 3 times, suffered harassment and persecution from political and government organizations and was on the brink of going to jail. That's why I live in Canada now. After the political changes in my country I was never able to publish anything but I was a member of the songwriters association.
