Goodreads asked Nancy-Gail Burns:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Nancy-Gail Burns Hard Lumps is a memoir. It is about my battle with breast cancer. I usually write fiction. I wrote about this particular experience because I find writing clarifies my thoughts and emotions, and cancer leaves you somewhat woozy and shaken. Writing helped me face the days of treatment and the uncertainty. I didn't intend to have it published, but when it was done I decided perhaps it could help other women facing the same diagnosis. I hope it does.
