A touching conversation with author, breast cancer activist and survivor Sharon Pape.

She say's: Looking back, I realize how fortunate I was that the cancer was discovered at such an early stage, but at the time it was all very overwhelming. Once I was back on my feet, I wanted to help other women who were newly diagnosed, worried and afraid. I became a Reach to Recovery volunteer for the American Cancer Society and went on to run the program for Nassau and Suffolk Counties on Long Island. In 2000, with the help of my surgical oncologist and two other volunteers, I started Lean On Me, a nonprofit organization that provides peer support and information to breast cancer patients. The thousands of women whose lives we’ve touched have enriched my life beyond measure.  When Lean On Me celebrated its tenth anniversary and no longer required as much of my time, I found my way back to my first love -- writing. This time I’m writing cozy mysteries with a paranormal twist: four in my Portrait of  Crime series from Berkley Prime Crime and the first in my Crystal Shop series from Berkley Intermix.
