Thanks For Your Kind Words, Plus A Nice Note About RESILIENCE


I wish to thank those of you who sent me emails or posted comments on Facebook about my recent Father’s Day blog. I was deeply touched by the concern and support that I received. I also appreciate how many of you shared your stories with me about your own parents and other loved ones with dementia.  Knowing that you cared enough to reach out to my family was deeply appreciated. 

I also have some good news to share.

Publishers Weekly, the bible of publishing, named the memoir that I have written with Jessie Close as one of the Top Ten Memoirs being published this fall. RESILIENCE will be officially published January 6th but is available for pre-order now. Grand Central Publishing announced an initial press run of 150,000 hardbacks. That’s more than any book I have participated in writing.

Jessie’s story about her recovery from mental illness and alcoholism is inspiring. It will offer hope to individuals and families who are walking down a path that many of us are on.

Stay tuned for pre-publication reviews. Meanwhile, we are keeping our fingers crossed that someone in Hollywood will decide that Jessie’s story deserves to be on the big screen!
