Rebecca Levy-Gantt Delivers! 

I was sitting in my office when a middle-aged patient came in, tears in her eyes. I was used to patients in various stages of emotional distress in my consultation room, often there for help with some physical, emotional, or health issue. I stopped typing at my computer keyboard to give her my full attention.

“What can I help you with?” I asked.

“It’s just so SO sad!” She said. She looked down. I offered her tissues. I stared at her curiously, trying to discern if she was going to continue with her story, which I assumed would include some explanation of what medical or family issue was in need of my attention, when I realized she was holding the book in her hand.

By “The Book,” I mean the Napa Writers Anthology, which I was so lucky to have been a contributor to. I suddenly realized she was referring to MY piece in the book, entitled “TINY FEET,” which, indeed was, so sad. I wasn’t sure if I should thank her for reading (or buying) it, or ask if there was something I could do to help her get over her grief.

Since that day, I have had calls, text messages, and emails from people–patients, friends, and family–complimenting the book, asking where they can read more of these talented authors’ works, and wanting to purchase the book for themselves.

I decided to put it on display in my office (Premier ObGyn Napa Inc, located at 3030 Beard Road in Napa) so people could read it while sitting in the waiting area. It has been a great “tease” since no one waits in my waiting room long enough to read more than two pieces. They often end up wanting more. They either purchase one right there on the spot or go to Amazon and buy one (or more — for friends and family).

Being able to discuss my interest in writing, my passion for my work, and having written a true story that people find moving enough to bring to my attention during their office visits has brought a whole new dimension to my life, as a physician and now, as a medical memoirist!
