[San Francisco, CA/USA] Divine Arts Media announces the June 2011 release of BACK TO LIFE: A Journey of Transformation through Back Surgery by Pamela Douglas.
Pamela, an Emmy-nominated screenwriter, faced the challenge of her life in 2005. Years after she was diagnosed with scoliosis — and after decades she spent working, exercising, gardening, having a baby and raising a family — doctors told her she would need to undergo major, life-threatening spine surgery.
Back to Life: A Journey of Transformation through Back Surgery delivers a patient's point of view on the psychological, emotional, and spiritual stages of preparation, hospitalization, and recovery from life-threatening spine surgery. Though the book will be helpful to anyone having a serious surgery, it's not limited to self-help or advice. It's an honest tale of how a medical challenge sparks a transformation.
About the Author: Pamela Douglas is an award-winning screenwriter with numerous credits in television drama, and also a fine artist. Her book, BACK TO LIFE: A Journey of Transformation through Back Surgery, explores the psychological, emotional, and spiritual stages of preparation, hospitalization, and recovery from spine surgery.

Multiple Emmy nominations and awards, as well as awards from American Women in Radio and Television, have gone to other dramas she has written.
