WOOHOO! I’m sharing my gutsy mental health recovery memoir, Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness at Mary Ryan’s Books Music and Coffee, Toowoomba on the 1st of July.
Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness reveals my teacher’s story of how parents at my school harassed me to breaking point and beyond. And how I spent weeks, if not months, in a Brisbane psyche hospital recuperating. How did I recover and reclaim my life?
I’m touched how the compassionate people of Toowoomba are booking into my event, sharing news about my author visit throughout their community.
Eddie Dowd, environmentalist, author of the children’s Eco Hero Books, invited me …
to Toowoomba to share my teacher’s journey into and out of mental illness. He posted event notices in Toowoomba’s The Chronicle and Warwick’s Daily News, describing me as a mental health ‘heroine’. I speak from my heart, offering hope and motivation.
Susan Skowronski, editor of the Fellowship of Australian Writer’s Scope magazine is spreading news about my author talk to her community and writers groups, leaving flyers at TAFE and UNI campuses.
Leanne, manager of Mary Ryan’s Toowoomba created a Facebook invitation. Please RSVP here
Please ring (07) 4632 0800 to reserve a seat. Eddie Dowd will introduce me and my recovery memoir at 11:00 am. I’ll reveal how I became ill, how my illness manifested and most importantly how I recovered. Then I’ll invite everyone to ask questions.
