Today’s guest is Linda Burhans.
A bit of backstory on her book:
Linda Burhan’s book is filled with humor and heartfelt inspiration to aide anyone facing the challenge of caring for a loved one at the end of life. Her story offers us hope for human strength and understanding of weaknesses during a difficult time.
From the altar of God’s House, the monsignor proclaimed, “Jo McCauley was a force of nature!” And she was. She was a breeze that brought laughter to everyone she met. She was a whirlwind of a volunteer and mother. She was the wind that carried her daughters and son forward on a life of love.
But dying and death are also forces of nature, and will not be denied. Linda’s book draws us along an unexpected path …
Linda, welcome to Reviews and Interviews. Please tell us a little bit about your Good Night and God Bless.
The book is a humorous and heartfelt story of my mother’s last 18 months of life to inspire and assist anyone with the challenge of being the caregiver to a loved one. My book offers hope for the understanding of human strengths and weaknesses experienced during a very difficult time.

The Stories of the Caregivers
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
About 10 years old. People have been asking me to write books for years
Do you write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
When I was out promoting my book… every single time, people would come up to me crying and looking for help. As a result I have become a caregiver advocate. I facilitate support groups and workshops for family caregivers. One of the most popular recent ones is Journaling through Your Caregiving Experience.
