My name is Carmel Breathnach. I was born and raised in Ireland and moved to Portland, Oregon, USA in my late twenties. I’m currently working on a memoir titled “A Lovely Woman,” based on my experience of losing my mother to cancer when I was 11 years old, after a prolonged illness. I’m a writer, blogger, reader, former elementary school teacher, music-lover and nature enthusiast. I value a holistic approach to life and health and I love to travel. Visit my Twitter page here: @AuthorCarmelB and my facebook author’s page here: ALOVELYWOMAN and I’m also on Instagram. Thank you for reading my blog posts about mother loss and I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to leave comments on my blog. Hugs!
