Life in the Land of IS

LIFE IN THE LAND OF IS
Life in the Land of IS tells the inspiring story of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the World’s Longest Living Quadriplegic. Lani is also a woman who believes in IS. “Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is yet to be,” she says, “but IS is now and it’s the truth of reality.”

In this beautifully captured memoir, Lani Deauville tells how in one moment of reckless abandon she went from a teenage diving champion to the edge of death and back again. Although destined to spend her remaining days in a wheelchair, Lani insists she wouldn’t change one moment of the amazing life that took her from high school dropout to one of the most accomplished and respected rehabilitative professionals in the state of Florida.
Her story is one that will amaze and inspire people from all walks of life and especially those who face such challenges themselves.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
