Goodreads asked Alan D. Raguso:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Alan D. Raguso My two passions of writing and helping fellow patients has been combined to let me extend myself into a field for which I had no training whatsoever. My full time job is real estate property management. I have done that well over thirty years and I'm 62 years old. I put off any thought of writing and publishing a book until about three years ago. I am a volunteer in diabetes education and have spent a lot of hours with certified diabetes educators in education classes, support group meetings and a diabetes education advisory committee for one of our local hospitals. I had developed hand outs, lecture outlines and graphic displays for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes patients. I was encouraged to take the next step to write and publish a book. I have been humbled by the response and support by both medical professionals and diabetes patients. We can make a difference around us and improve other people's lives.
