her life. During lunch at the Vinoy Renaissance
in St. Petersburg with her mother Martha Baker and her sister, Judith Haimes,

her breast was cancer. It would be after
her first of two surgeries at Morton Plant Hospital in June that they would
discover NanC had Stage III, metastatic breast cancer.
was nothing this tight-knit trio couldn’t face together. So in true form, with Mom cheering them on,
NanC and Judith decided to write a book.
It was a cathartic distraction that eventually would become a real
success. During NanC’s chemotherapy sessions,
she and her sister began creating their book, The Hand of Karma. With
Judith sitting bedside as NanC received her treatments, these two sisters and best
friends journeyed through the ordeal of cancer together and created a serial
killer by proxy thriller.

reader will not be able to put down once started." Katherine Fair Donnelly, Author, The Secret Of The Crystal Skull
Hand of Karma is an electrifying read that shakes your foundation to
the core, not only because of it's truth, but because it "is truth" that
another hand sometimes reaches through the veil of physical life to
mold what will be.

engrossing book, hard to put it down. I just kept reading it for two
days. I wanted to know what was going to happen next. If you are worried

TV movie or movie out of this book." By 'Music Fan' on Amazon
