Join us at the Virtual Launch Event...

SCARS TO STARS Anthology Book Launch 2-22-22!
A collection of 20 vulnerable personal experiences of overcoming adversity. From loss & grief to abuse, suicide and much more.

As a suicide attempt survivor, I believe that conversation and community is the only way we are going to make a dent in mental health and suicide rates. The personal vulnerable stories in these pages will meet the reader where they are and show them that they are not alone.  They will be inspired and motivated to overcome situations in their own life.

All Proceeds benefit the REALIZE FOUNDATION

I bet you would thrive personally and professionally in a way you never imagined"
