I'm a writer living in Sturgis, Michigan. I've always dabbled in writing, but found that writing after brain surgery gave me an outlet to capture my experience. After my broken brain brought an Information Technology career to a halt and I struggled with head pain, facial paralysis, and single-sided deafness, I found that writing helped me express what I was feeling both physically and emotionally.

Loss Means You Are Alive





I must admit that I am not organized. Yes, shocking, but I do not have everything in its place. I plan to get everything in order someday, but it is only Tuesday. I lose things.





I have a gadget on my car keys so I can find them from my phone. The challenge is that I’m deaf in one ear, which disables the ability to determine where sound comes from. I estimate that it takes triple the amount of time

“Always remember to breathe”
Sally Stap, Smiling Again: Coming Back to Life and Faith After Brain Surgery

“It was surreal to see such normalcy in the midst of my personal crisis. The horses still raced. The vendors still served food. The world did not stop because I had a brain tumor.”
