More About the Author
Athena Dean has spent the last 20+ years in the book publishing industry as co-founder and former-owner of WinePress Publishing. She continued to work with authors one-on-one to help coach them through the challenges and joys of the publishing process until just recently when she transitioned out of publishing and into radio on a full time basis. She was asked to host a live radio show for women on AM 630 KSLR. (www.alwaysfaithfulradio.com) and has now been "sent out" by her local church as a radio broadcast missionary under Commission to Every Nation. (www.cten.org/athenadean)
Author of 3 books including Consumed by Success: Reaching the Top and Finding God Wasn't There, she has never been afraid to share her flaws and failures in order to be an encouragement to others. In November 2011 she walked away from 12 years of horrific spiritual destruction and abuse, and has blogged extensively about her experience at wwww.notafraidtotellmystory.com.
Recently reunited with her family after 12 long years, Athena has 3 sons, and 1 daughter, and is enjoying being grandma to 11 grandchildren scattered across the United States.
