In the summer of 1994, when I was 14, I moved in with mom.

In the fall of 1994 I discovered my mom was an alcoholic.

In the fall of 1994 I stared at a pink daisy razor and wondered if I could slice the life out of myself with it. My mom dared me to do it.

In the spring of 1996, at 16, I found out I was pregnant.

In the spring of 2001 I learned how to set boundaries.

In the fall of 2002 I learned to mourn the loss of a mother, even though she was still alive.

In the fall of 2008 my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver (alcohol induced).

In the spring of 2016 I gently rubbed my mom’s head as her breath wound down and she entered the arms of Jesus. I told her I would tell our story.

On June 30th, 2018 I turned in the first draft manuscript of that story, The Complicated Heart: Loving Even When It Hurts.

On September 17, 2019, The Complicated Heart will be released to the world. And on September 18th, 2019 God’s providence and grace will be on full display in my heart because my daughter will be turning 14, the age I was when this book-story starts. Amazing grace indeed.

I’d be honored to have your help in sharing this story, this book.

Join the Launch Team Q & A

What does it mean to join a launch team?

It just means that you want to help me get the word out about The Complicated Heart.

Can everyone who applies be on the launch team?

We have a limited number of spots, so if you’re interested, please make sure to fill out the simple application clicking HEREThe first 100 verified/eligible people to apply will get a paperback copy of the book.

The call for launch team applicants goes public tomorrow!

How can I spread the word about a book I haven’t read?

Everyone on the launch team will get a copy of The Complicated Heart. The first 100 verified/eligible people to sign-up will get an Advanced Reader Copy of the book (that’s a fancy way of saying, it’s a real paperback book, but it’s considered a media copy, not the polished copy that will be on bookshelves - but it’s still the story). Everyone else will receive a digital copy.

But that’s not all.

As a launch team member, you will also receive:

Exclusive access to the The Complicated Heart Facebook Group where you can make some new friends, interact with me, and also have opportunities to win some fun prizes!

You’ll also get to personally ask me questions about the bookthe stories in it, and anything you’re still curious about after reading it (I always wish I could do that with authors after reading their memoirs!).

What is required of me if I join?

As a launch team member, you agree to:

1. Review the book on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Goodreads (copy and pasting is fine) within a week after release day.

2. Spread the word on social media and in person with family and friends.
