Why Did I Write the Book, "Lisa's Light"?
  First and foremost, I wanted to honor the memory of my daughter, Lisa. She helped many people in sobriety when she herself was in recovery for three years. Today, Lisa's story continues to help many in recovery. It is my hope that readers will understand the reasons behind addiction and the risks involved with continued substance abuse.

  Lisa thought she could do it differently and decided to drink again when she turned twenty-one. My book explores this "greatest myth" and how it results in relapse and possible tragedy...a tragedy that can be avoided. Lisa would still be here today if she hadn't believed the greatest "myth".

  With my having over forty-two years of sobriety, I have the desire to share my experience, strength and hope. The gift of sobriety was given to me by others. In order to keep my sobriety, I have to spread the message of hope to others so that they too will see the benefits of a sober life free of all drugs. My book offers insight into the disease of addiction and gives valuable advice to stay sober. Lisa's Light is for people in recovery wishing a better life free of substance abuse.

  During this terrible pandemic, addiction is on the rise. As we protect ourselves from the virus, we also need to protect ourselves from the tragic results of addiction. There is no vaccine for addiction. Addiction is not curable but treatable. Lisa's Light will inspire hope for recovery!
