Judith Hannan is a writer and educator. Motherhood Exaggerated is an emotionally uncompromising literary memoir that recounts the ordeal of her young daughter’s battle with cancer. “The dramatic language, both highly descriptive and emotional, rings with the unforgiving pain and fear of this terrifying disease.” – Carly Simon.
