About Our Guest Shirley Melis

Shirley Melis is a longtime business writer, travel writer, and newspaper columnist who traveled the world interviewing everyone from busboys to heads of international organizations before launching a career in public relations in Washington, D.C.

When her husband of thirty years dies suddenly, Shirley is convinced she will never find another man like Joe.  Then she meets John, a younger man who tells her during their first conversation that he has lived for many years with a rare but manageable cancer.  She is swept off her feet in a whirlwind courtship, and within months, made brave by the early death of a friend's husband, she asks him to marry her!

What follows is a year-long odyssey of travel and a growing erotic and creative partnership, until a mysterious bump on John's forehead proves to be one of several tumors in his brain and spine.  The nine months that follow are filled with a life-threatening infection, three brain surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy.  Two years and one week after their wedding, John dies at the age of fifty-nine. 

Banged-Up Heart - Dancing with Love and Loss, is an intimate and clear-eyed account of finding love late and losing it early, and of the strength it takes to fall madly in love a second time, be forced to relinquish that love too soon, and yet choose to love again.

I invite you to listen to my interview with Shirley Melis.  We will be discussing her memoir, and how passion ignites, romance fuels, and love sustains.
