(After the talk, I’m now a official Judge. Yes!
Well no, but I got to try on the robe 😉
Thanks Margaret!)

In conclusion, the Law Judge agreed:
“Incredible story of perseverance”
By Peggy Broussard

“Wow! Not only did Maureen survive, she thrived. The book gives an honest glimpse into the world of someone who has confronted a life changing, terrifying event. Her daily struggles are detailed in a way that makes you laugh, cry and, most of all, root for her ongoing success. I got so caught up in the story, I could not put the book down. Well written and inspiring.”


My book on Amazon:

Don’t panic.
Read my book instead:


2016 - Book, don't panic

Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke … oh what fun)

“When Maureen Twomey was only thirty-three years old, she experienced a massive stroke—one that took away her ability to read, write, walk, and even speak (AAAAAAAHHH!!). But she wasn’t about to go down without a fight. In Before, Afdre, and After, Twomey offers a sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes comical, and ultimately inspiring account of what it is to lose everything when you’re supposed to be in the prime of your life—and what it takes to get it back, piece by tiny piece.”


“I never thought I’d say this and mean it: This book will make you laugh and it will make you cry. It’s a joyous, inventive journey through loss and recovery, and Maureen’s spirit shines through in this blueprint for living a full, blessed and loving life. Read it now, you fools!!”
–Jeff Kreisler, author of Get Rich Cheating
