Pandemic Panacea is a must-read, taking its readers on a journey in the step-by-step emergence of a dynamic writer.  It shows how the unnerving moments of 2020 motivated a woman to establish a daily routine of writing, soon evolving into a series of compelling essays, all published in a New Hampshire newspaper.   From a moving account of the impact of World War II on her father, a high-ranking U.S. officer at Okinawa, to engaging commentaries charting the unpredictable course of events in 2020, Colt delivers essays with injections of wit and opinion that culminate in a page-turning delight. Interwoven are the reminders of how her writing discipline helped her to navigate a rugged year.  As she says, routines don’t have to be mundane. And, in this case, they led to a memorable work of art.”
