Meet the Author: Allan Ament, "Learning to Float"

The lives of Allan and Deloris Ament take a dramatic turn when Deloris suffers a debilitating stroke. No longer equal partners in marriage, Allan becomes Deloris’s primary caregiver, responsible for maintaining their household and her well-being. “Learning to Float” describes Allan’s transformation from a criminal defense attorney to a compassionate, emotionally vulnerable caregiver.
