Excerpts from This Hunger Is Secret pubished online

Quay Journal has published two excerpts from This Hunger Is Secret: My Journeys Through Mental Illness and Wellness.

Here’s the link:


Quay Journal also comes out in hard copy.

The first excerpt, “2008/1997/Going Back” is the epilogue.  It makes me cry every time I read it, for reasons I can never put a finger on.  The second is an excerpt from my chapter, “Locker #47.”  Why the chapter is called this…well, you’ll have to read the book!  This excerpt was actually my graduation reading!

Meanwhile, when I submitted these chapters, it was well before the book was published.  There were changes and edits I made in the rewrites.  I tried to catch them all.  Apologies if I did not.  As you know, I have been very ill.

Here’s the link to the publisher’s website where you can purchase my book:


You may purchase it in e-book form now, or wait for the paperback to come out.
