Taunton Author’s inspirational novel of triumph through her years of coaching cheerleaders


TAUNTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- October 15, 2008 Smiling Eyes, A Cheerleading Coach’s Personal Victory Following a bizarre tragedy that defies logic, and a second chance at life, this woman who was barely noticed in a family of nine, chooses to prove her worth emotionally, mentally and physically through her accomplishments in coaching cheerleaders, and then succeeds in completing an inspiring novel of triumph.

After years of being encouraged so many times by professional people such as doctors and therapist, to write a story about a bizarre accident that she was involved in, the author decided that the only way she could take on such a project would be to surround it with something that was so positive in her life that it may have been one of the most key effects that fostered her through the healing process of multiple injuries. Her family and coaching cheerleaders gave her purpose to repair and accept her injured body. In this cheerleading journey is the year of the accident, the year of recovery, and how she returned to coaching.

With over thirty years and two generations of coaching for youth and high school cheerleaders, I reminisce with countless tales of the triumphs and struggles of cheerleaders competing at both the national and international levels. This memoir, with all of its guts and glory about cheerleading, also tells the personal tales about a family of strong and determined women. Included are memories of my mother and her drive to raise a family of seven until her heartbreaking final days after losing a three-year battle with cancer.
