What’s Past is Prologue

Content Warning: This episode contains discussion that some survivors may find triggering. It also contains spoilers regarding the content of the book.

On this episode we have Deborah Fezelle, who is the author of, “What’s Past is Prologue.” Deborah is a frequent guest of the podcast and a familiar author to many readers. She has an incredible resume in the arts and is a graduate of Juilliard. Deborah has worked as an actress, a director and coach, and as a writer. This book is the latest installment of the Nick McDeare Series.

Deborah Fezelle

This book, because of its subject-matter, was written to be more of a stand-alone piece than the other McDeare installments. Deborah describes this book as a personal “triumph” because she had to work through her own history of trauma to carry the reader on a similar journey with the characters.

It is a very sincere and heartfelt discussion, however, as the trigger warning indicates; it contains mature subject matter.

This podcast was produced in conjunction with HumorOutcasts.com, HOPress-Shorehouse Books, and other HO brands and publishing divisions.

Keloid Awareness with Advocate Sarah Dawn

On this episode we have Sarah Dawn, who is an advocate for keloid scarring awareness.

Sarah is very active on TikTok and believes her world doesn’t evolve around her scars, but rather her scars revolve around her world.

Sarah shares how having keloid scars has impacted her life and how she became determined to change the prevailing attitude about scars as things that are ugly and should be hidden.  

We also talk about what keloids are, and some of the ways they can impact health and wellness.

We also discuss the topic of stigma around scars. Scars are often associated with the villain of the story, not the hero. In other cases, scars can be associated with the unhealed or the unholy.

March is National Keloid Awareness Month.

Kristy wrote this book based on the real emotions her mother faced when her father passed away from Stage Four Renal Cell Carcinoma. Kristy’s goal with writing this book was not only to present a Christmas love story, but to bring forth cancer awareness about renal cell carcinoma as well as another form of cancer called inflammatory breast cancer.

A Christmas to Remember not only talks about what a cancer patient goes through but also the feelings that a spouse goes through after the loss of a loved one.
