Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

Laughing in the ICU waiting room

It’s way too early to know if my new novel, Time Is Irreverent 2: Jesus Christ, Not Again! will be a sales success, but this morning I received the nicest email from a woman in Sweden. She had been in the intensive care waiting room at a hospital, while her mother was having heart surgery. She read my novel to pass the time and soon started giggling uncontrollably and laughing out loud.

Wow! I write with the goal of making the world a better place. Sometimes that better place isn’t the world at large, but just one person in an ICU in Sweden. Giving a woman a smile and a laugh during such a difficult time has already made “Jesus Christ, Not Again!” a success. And, yay! the woman’s mother is now out of the hospital.
