Cara’s thirst for answers brings her only more questions.
What will it take, Dr. Finnegan, to get close to you?

And then Gwen overhears a whispered blackmail threat.

RECLAIMING MY MIND: A JOURNEY THROUGH DARKNESS is three books of poetry under one cover. It charts the unique arc of my life, from happy childhood to challenging adulthood. In my early twenties, I was struck by the life-altering impact of mental illness. I endured years of adversity before pursuing poetry as a form of therapy and a means of empowerment. By putting my story into verse, I took a devastating disease and turned it into a gift. GHOST OF A BUTTERFLY traces the stages of my evolving narrative, always haunted by the specter of madness. FOLLOWING DISTURBANCES, written twenty years later, serves as a bridge from past to present. It connects words & experiences with a different style but a similar commitment to order & self-control. DAILY BRIEFINGS documents a range of pressing issues, extending from the personal realm to the public forum. The common thread is to persevere through the difficult detours of destiny. The ultimate irony is that by losing my mind, I found my voice. Emerging from the shadows, I seek light and refuse to surrender!
