Who better to write a novel about Alzheimer’s than a neuroscientist? Ms. Genova self-published her first book, Still Alice – an intimate, moving look at the disease, in 2007.

Since then she’s used her background to pen works about Autism, Huntington’s Disease, and “left neglect” brought about by a traumatic brain injury. Learn more at her website.
