About the author

Being raised by two dirty hippies in a VW camper, Emily Page fell in love with art early as a way to entertain herself on long camping trips with no TV. As a result, she studied art in college at Wake Forest University, and has been a professional artist for about 15 years. She has used art to understand, interpret, and express her feelings about various challenges that she's faced over the years.She's also used it to make people laugh. She is a lover of the absurd and whimsical, of honesty and openness, of facing the darkness head on, of mac and cheese.

While she never fancied herself a writer, Page does come from a family of writers - in particular, her grandfather, Irvine H. Page, and her grandmother, Beatrice Allen Page, were both published authors. Page started blogging at the insistence of a friend who thought it would be a good avenue for promoting her artwork. Little did she know that her artwork and writing about dementia would strike a cord within so many people.

So now Page has decided to buckle down and assemble and add to her writings and collection of paintings about dementia. Says Page, "This is a terrifying endeavor, because, as mentioned before, and I don't consider myself a writer. But the encouragement of friends and family (and a fair few strangers!) has helped me to decide to take the leap and hope I grow my wings on the way down - or at least not get whacked in the face by too many branches before I hit the ground."

Update #19 - Reviews Feb. 24, 2017

Hello there, glorious Fractured Memories readers!! As you all know, I opted to self-publish the book, which means that promoting it is up to me. So I'm going to do some uber-begging. First, in order for books (eBooks, soft cover, or hard cover) to be seen on Amazon, they need to have at least 25 reviews. So far, I have 7. That means I need to get at least eleventy more (I'm good at art and writing, not math, people). That means I need help. That means that, if you liked the book, you could write a review on Amazon. That means that people would know the book exists. That means people would buy it. That means I wouldn't have to live off of ramen noodles, which are terrible for my triglyceride counts. Instead, I could live off of cheese, which is equally bad for my triglyceride counts but so much tastier. It also means that I could support my bourbon habit, which sterilizes my insides, washing all those triglycerides out (yup, I'm pretty sure that's how it works).

And now, another big ask: if you liked the book, tell someone you actually know! You can post about it on social media, or just tell a friend who you think would like it. If they've been a caregiver, they'll be saying, "Me, too!" the whole time they're reading it. If they haven't been a caregiver, you're prepping them for something that most of us will go through at one time or another with a parent or spouse or friend; or, you're helping them know how to be a better support for the caregivers they know. Win-win! If they want to order a print copy (or if you want to order a copy for them), they can do so on my website at http://shop.emilypageart.com/ (I make more money this way than on Amazon, AND they'll save a little money, too). If they're not interested, try describing the book as "a staggering work of genius," or "the best thing that ever was - EVER." If they're still not interested, they sound like pretty boring people and you should probably not be friends with them anymore.

Many many (and a few more) thanks in advance!!
