Cork, Ireland, Native Katie B. McGrath Releases Medical Nightmare Memoir
A true tale of fear, love, and survival, all with characteristic Irish wit
By: Little Red Writing
"In the beginning, I quickly became aware that my short-term memory was failing me as a result of surgeries and radiation. Donal [her husband] suggested I keep a journal to make sure I accurately captured every moment," Katie says. "The process was cathartic, even though I had to relive those difficult days of hallucinations, intense pain, and the sickness from radiation. But it's worth it if anything I learned on my way to 'remission' helps someone else."
Readers will be haunted by stark descriptions of the horror McGrath faced and then elevated by stories of her husband's steadfast love and Katie's humourous anecdotes of learning to live again with the aftermath of her tumour. Unafraid to laugh at herself or speak her mind, McGrath finishes this chapter of her story with the coping mechanisms that get her through each day.
The first non-fiction offering by Katie B. McGrath is now internationally available for purchase in print and for mobile devices on Amazon and through local booksellers. McGrath published her medical memoir on March 31, 2021, with assistance from American firm Little Red Writing. According to relaxing COVID-19 policies, McGrath is now available for in-person readings and interviews.
