by Sharon Lacey
About The Book:
Life doesn't always go the way you plan it. With Alzheimer's disease striking members of her immediate family, Sharon Lacey feared she'd be next. She figured she'd better do everything she'd always wanted to do before it was too late.
Although she was close to retirement age and still loved her job as a middle school teacher, Sharon decided to challenge her brain by taking her life in a new direction: Stand up comedy.
This book takes you on one woman's journey from her first scary open mic, to life on the road as a comedian, to performing in a war zone in Iraq.
Her race against dementia ultimately leads her to Africa where she entertains Ugandans in two of their tribal languages, and brings desperately needed supplies to children and elderly in the villages.
Not only does she learn that life doesn't end at age 50, Sharon Lacey discovers that laughter and love are universal languages.
