Please join me in helping to spread the word about Essential Tremor. March is Essential Tremor month. My novel ‘A faded Cottage’ a South Carolina’, a love story is about a man with Essential Tremor. ‘A Faded Cottage’ is a powerful story blending fact and fiction. It is a story about a famous artist whose life is turned upside down when he learns he has Essential Tremor and begins to shake uncontrollably. He leaves his life in New York and buys a faded cottage on the beach of South Carolina discovering his teenage love after thirty years. This is his journal of only two weeks, a story of endless love, his tale of living with ET, and the strength and power of love. Essential tremor (ET) is a progressive neurological condition that causes a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs, or trunk. An estimated 10 million Americans have ET. A portion of the proceeds from each book sold of “A Faded Cottage” will be donated to Diann Shaddox Foundation to help find a cure. www.diannshaddox.com
