Making the Best of Chemo

When cancer got in the way of Celia Bonaduce’s traveling for her day job as a field producer on the hit HGTV show, House Hunters, she did not let it stop her creativity. While the road to her first nonfiction book, SMOOTH, was anything but, it was a path that Celia felt compelled to explore. This collection of life hacks comes from Celia's own experiences living through chemo.

“As soon as I found out I was to go through chemo, I went into full-on producer/director mode.

“My job had always been to anticipate problems and solve them before they even happened,” Celia said. “I was surprised to find how little helpful information about the day-to-day challenges of chemo was out there. I decided to keep myself busy by remedying that.”

Celia’s professional skills as a podcast writer, and television producer all came into play researching SMOOTH. Her TV credits, besides House Hunters, include ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and HGTV’s Tiny House Hunters. As a novelist with Kensington Publishing, Celia has written three trilogies: the Venice Beach Romances, the Fat Chance, Texas series, and the Tiny House novels. Celia is also a co-author of A Texas Kind of Christmas, released by Kensington.
