Mandy lives with chronic back pain following major corrective surgeries for scoliosis (a “S” shaped curved spine) when she was a teenager. She has a PhD in Environmental Science and published in peer-reviewed journals, fiction and non-fiction anthologies and has been blogging for the past 10 years on mindfulness and self pain management. When not writing, meditating, or hanging out with her family, you’ll find Mandy curled up reading or walking Max, the lovable but slow-witted springer spaniel.
