As a single mother to my son, Keven, I journeyed alongside him through his addiction and mental health issues. Ultimately, his suicide led me to begin writing a memoir about what I've learned and am learning through my loss.

I advocate harm reduction for addicts and am an active in a number of several  organizations for parents of addicts and parents who have lost a child to suicide. 

I love rock and roll music!  Reading, writing and most of all - my two dogs, Chester B.  and Evo.
