"In the spring of 2021 I asked Kiera if I could serve as a literary advisor to her. She agreed and we have had an active writing-based relationship since then. What I did not anticipate is that we would build a close friendship. What is more, Kiera is a blessing to me.
My wife of 44 years, Irene Bradley, had multiple catastrophic impairments for 24 years. This including a TBI. She lived at home and I worked full time. The stresses and strains on the family caregiver from that experience do not vanish immediately after the death of your sweetheart. Kiera, as have many of our TBI community, has taught me that you should embrace those challenges and not try to run from them. I am a better person due to Kiera’s strength and kindness.
Kiera has already authored poems and stories that will become iconic. She is hilariously funny. Our teasing is nonstop fun. (Wait a second. All of that teasing is directed at me! And well deserved. I adore that also)."
