Winner: National Indie Excellence Awards — Caregiving!

The National Indie Excellence® Awards recognized Run, Walk, Crawl- A Caregiver Caught Between Generations as Winner in the Caregiving category!

I admit, I’m over the moon to win in the Caregiving category! Mindful of how many selfless caregiver’s there are across the nation, my hope is to have well represented this hardworking, often overlooked assembly and moved the dial just a little in their favor.  I’m immensely grateful to NIEA reviewers and judges for understanding the toll of caregiving. It’s validating to know that my story resonates and is worthy of recognition as those that are traditionally published.


We also won Finalist: National Indie Excellence Awards —Book Cover Design (Non-fiction)

The collaboration on the cover with my husband, Tony Persiani, makes this award that more special!

Both Tony and I are humbled by this wonderful honor.
