What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I struggled to find my voice when I persevered through my own mental health and addiction issues. I often failed to use my voice in times of need, and I learned that silence will always be the enemy of recovery. Ignorance merely means that people are not informed. Education is power. My hope is to allow more people to step out from the shadows and into the light.
