I organized the series by Lifetimes - poignant moments of change when I knew my life would never be the same again.

At the end of each Lifetime, I knew there was still something better out there... a chance to be stable and happy... and a way to release my soul once and for all.


I finally found the authentic me in Lifetime Number Nine at age 56.

What it took to get here is a long, crazy ride. And I capture the twists and turns in a story that captures the heart of he disease.  

My life look a left turn with my first beer. Here is teenage angst and the beginnings of the disease.

I thought marriage, maturity, and a baby would keep alcoholism at bay. It didn't.

Marriage #2 with its soaring peaks and deep valleys. Life was a blast until drinking took over.

One bad decision after another, the rollercoaster life of my late 30's takes me down with a surprise move.

The final showdown, my seemingly-hopeless bottom, and a rocky rise from the ashes to sobriety.

Who said the first year of sobriety can be more painful than the last year drinking? Most everybody, actually.

Another rollercoaster ride with husband #4, then a step into grace when I finally let go.

A combo of Books 1 & 2 in one volume help you get started easier with the series. 

Is an epilogue named GRACE in the works? You never know... maybe I have more to say.
