Christine Molloy, a writer and registered nurse, is a native of western Massachusetts, where she currently resides with her husband Chuck, who is the love of her life, and their basset hound mix, Molly. She has two stepchildren, Stephanie and Dan. Christine graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst where she earned her BS degree in nursing. She is the author of the blog Thoughts and Ramblings on Life, Love, and Health (www.christinemolloy.com). Her greatest hope is that this collection of essays will help ease the suffering of those who are on the difficult, and sometimes rewarding, journey of living with Sjoegren's syndrome.
