About Jo Ann V. Glim
Jo Ann Glim was born in Chicago, Illinois to a military family and raised in Anacortes, Washington in the far reaches of the Pacific Northwest. It was an ideal place to raise a precocious child, especially one that's inquisitive and daring. Tragically, her mother passed away from a stroke when Glim was fourteen. This was the beginning of a life-path plotted with many dark events. In her own words, "instead of consuming me, they made me stronger, and I'm here to tell you, darkness can be replaced with light."
Glim's three-pronged career of broadcast and print media, freelance writing, and business management formed her into the award-winning indie author she is today. Her books, the award-winning "Begotten With Love," and her newest release "Trapped Within," are both non-fiction, life stories filled with challenges, hope, and humor.
Glim now lives in Florida with her husband, Bill, and their Scottish terrier, Lucy. Her passions are writing, photography, and travel, handbells, hiking trails, and life itself.
This story is written to offer encouragement to stroke survivors, hope to their family members and caretakers, and understanding to medical professionals or anyone interested in knowing what it's like to be Trapped Within your own body.
Based on the author's 30 years of research, the book brings to life each generation and lets the readers live the experiences as the characters and plots unfold.
"My family is a writer's dream," Glim said, "filled with remarkable characters but then every family has its share of dreamers and doers, cowards and cads, heroes and heroines. I hope after reading Begotten With Love you will love my family as much as I do . . . warts and all. More than that, I hope you will love your family even more!"
