The Story Behind the Book

I have been in love with writing since I first treasured the smell of paper and the flow of ink. Mom would read to me and I would ‘pretend to write’ on anything I could get my hands on. ‘Pretend to write’. That phrase haunts me still when I am asked to create a guest post or write an article for public consumption.

Her history is peopled with folks from a different time, a time before therapy was acceptable, 12 steps unimaginable and harsh words, backhands and even harsher silences can be spun to appear almost normal. She writes of a mother who would not or could not initiate love nor give it without condition, and a father, damn near heroic at times, abusive at others, a survivor with his head down and his sleeves rolled up.
