Kim Scott was born in South Carolina and grew up in Scarborough, Maine. She currently lives near the coast in Southern Maine. Her pen name used for her Ghost Stories is Lydia North.
Before continuing with Kim’s books, I would like all those who visit this post to know that she is a very sick woman. She has a disease called Advanced A-typical Pulmonary Sarcoidosis – Stage 4.
You can help by purchasing her books. Descriptions and links after the description of her disorder.
What is sarcoidosis?
Sarcoidosis is a condition where tiny lumps (nodules), known as granulomas, develop at various sites within your body, due to inflammation. These granulomas are made up of cells involved in inflammation.
Sarcoidosis most commonly affects the lungs and lymph glands in the chest area (pulmonary sarcoidosis). However, it can affect almost any part of your body, including your eyes, skin, heart, liver, kidneys, salivary glands, muscles, nose, sinuses, brain and nerves. If lots of granulomas form in a part (or organ) of your body, this can start to affect how that part of your body works and functions. So, it is the presence of the granulomas formed in response to inflammation that causes the symptoms of sarcoidosis in the various parts of your body.
