I too have written memoirs on addiction. My first S0meone Stop This Merry-Go-Round: An Alcoholic Family in Crisis about my life living with my alcoholic husband, Richard, and two daughters, Debbie and Lori. It tells how enabling only brings the addict deeper into their addiction. I open up with reality on how an alcoholic family lives through fear, confusion and sometimes abuse to only lose the loved one.

Its sequel, Please, God, Not Two: This Killer Called Alcoholism is about our lives after Richie's death. Our daughter, Lori, follows the same path, and after, three alcoholic rehab stays, she died from her addiction in 2006 at 39 years of age. I give my talks behind closed doors to addicts and to the public. Richard and Lori were laid to rest together.

Losing both, I wanted to know why some alcoholics and addicts make it while others die from this disease. I had 34 substance abusers from the USA and Canada with all walks of life, write about their feelings, wants and needs to family, doctors and counselors on what they believe isn't working in recovery programs in my Narrative Non-Fiction What is and isn't Working for the Alcoholic and Addict: In Their Own Words.

They can all be purchased in paperback and Kindle at
