Author. Teacher. Coach. Counselor. Therapist. Mother. Wife. Friend. Daughter. Sister. Pet Mother. Human. Not in any particular order. Sometimes all at the same time.
Here is where I blog about writing and mental health, which, if you are a writer, you understand the connection.
"In Till It Stops Beating, Hannah
R. Goodman masterfully renders a tender, heartwarming tale of first love, first
loss, and jelly donuts." --Heather Christie, author ofWhat the Valley KnowsAmazon best-selling author
Seventeen-year-old Maddie Hickman has always coped with anxiety by
immersing herself into the latest self-help book. Then her grandmother is
diagnosed with cancer, and she spirals so far downward that she almost risks
losing everything she holds dear.
From applying to
college to solving the mystery of why she detests jelly doughnuts to writing a
novel for her senior project and reconnecting with an old flame (or two), the
ever-mounting stress leads to an unexpected road trip where she is forced to
listen to her wildly beating heart. It is only
in the back of a convertible with pop music blasting, that she discovers what
she needs in order to really live.
