*The following is a review/comments on my personal memoir One Third Crazy. It’s written by a fellow writer whom I went to high school with 18 years ago but have not kept in contact with since, until a few weeks ago. I feel it’s a good representation of the reaction I’ve gotten from the select group of people I’ve allowed to read it prior to it being sold and published.
Note: everyone who’s read it has done so in 24 hours or less which just blows my mind!!! So honored and humbled by her words….
only have a story but you have a gift to captivate your audience. I had no idea in high school what you
had gone through up to that point in your life. Or what you went through after Heather’s death. Things no child should even have nightmares about much less live through. Heather’s funeral was my first one too and I had definitely never seen an open casket either. I am so sorry for all your pain. Your life experiences as a child are incomprehensible to me. You made it real and I lived it with you as your words flowed off the page into my heart. My heart was ripped out throughout your entire book as I empathized with your heart wrenching experiences.
done through all the turmoil you have experienced is nothing short of a miracle. You have chosen to change your legacy and not be a product of your past but have chosen to mold your future. Wow!!
doubled over in pain for you and your little ones. What a fraud! The man for you is out there he has to be. One day…
