Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: I wrote Before It Had A Name with people like me in mind who fight depression, obsessive compulsive disorder or any other “mental and emotional” disorder. I’d lived in shame for so many years and it’s time to drag the demon out of the darkness.

Q: What is the book about?
A: I had been a child training my brain to be accepted in a ‘normal’ world when a condition with no name became “Her”. I turned the condition into an individual who I co-exist with. I created two systems that have not only saved my sanity but helped me find joy in the dark world of chemical imbalance and bi-polar shame. Brain Coffins for the daily mental clutter and Brain Brakes for a softer landing after the extreme highs.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I feel I am the best person to write this book because I not only suffer like millions of others with this demon but I have learned to do it all without medication.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: This book is different because there is no confusing medical terminology. It is the story of my life and how I managed to survive six divorces, a son’s death and this demon to find real joy in life.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: The thing I’d like people to know about this book is it is the life story of a girl who lived with more that her share of tragedy but came out the victor of this demon… Praising God everyday for it!
