Stopping by Author Chat on Sunday Feb. 23 is author Monique E. Hammond. Monique will be 'chatting' with me about her new book, What Did You Say? An Unexpected Journey into the World of Hearing Loss.

About the book:

Nothing prepared Monique Hammond for her own sudden hearing loss, and her questions to medical professionals often left her with more questions than answers. What Did You Say? is the book she wishes she had when she was coping with and trying to understand her own hearing loss.

Hammond points out that she is not a professional hearing specialist, so her first important message is that people who experience any ear-related symptoms ''must consult their physician or ear specialist for proper diagnosis and treatment.'' From there, she provides organized, easy-to-understand facts and details that enable readers to have educated discussions with their medical professionals. Weaving together her own experiences with a wealth of information, Hammond's wisdom and insights are invaluable, and her story is one that needs to be shared.

About the author:

MONIQUE E. HAMMOND was born and raised in Luxembourg, Europe. She graduated with a B.S. in Pharmacy from the University of Minnesota with high distinction. Monique is a registered pharmacist who has worked in retail stores and in hospital pharmacies in Europe, the United States, and Australia. Her priorities have always been patient safety and advocacy as well as health education and disease prevention.

Monique has done extensive public speaking on health issues and has published health columns and articles both at home and overseas. She produced and hosted her own health-focused public access TV show Over-the-Counter in Minneapolis.

Following her family's assignment to Australia, Monique wrote Ride the Wave, a book on the relocation challenges for American families working overseas.
