Interview with author –
July 27, 2020 – A: My new book, “Reclaiming My Life,” is a poignant and triumphant journey through the loss of my child to addiction. The book resonates with families who have lost loved ones or who suffer through the pain of addiction. It shows families the way to get help so that they do not have to experience what I went through. My book is an inspirational story about surviving and overcoming tragedy and finding a way back to a meaningful life.
I have always used writing as a tool to help me to get through difficult times, and I have always wanted to write a book. I connected with local writer Sylvia Blair at a business networking meeting about a year ago. Together, we outlined the book, and talked about my story, in the hopes of helping others. We also got to know one another by meeting weekly at my home over lunch. I am so very proud of the work that we put into this book.
