From the Author
Sometimes the universe tells you to do something--and you just do it. Your soul realizes that what's before you is so important that you must do it. That's how Stepping Off the Edge was. When I started writing in my journal at the Gathering, a Native American spiritual retreat led by Bill Miller, I had no idea my scribbling would turn into a national award winning book. But it did.
I'd like you to go with me on a journey you'll never forget--my journey through life and love, addiction and recovery. A journey that took me to my roots, and my heights--and depths.
As we make this journey together, I think you'll see how alike we are, and how what I learned can apply to your life.
I invite you to read my book, and watch out for what's coming. I've just begun this voyage of speaking to the heart. I'd love you to come along with me. We'll have a ball.
