About Audrey Levy
Keep up with Audrey at https://audreylevy.com
Audrey Levy is a storyteller at heart. It all began at age six, when she would sit in her father’s lap and spin tales for him by turning her weekly spelling words into a cohesive story. “You are a great writer, and you’re going to be very famous one day,” he often told her. Sounds idyllic, right? Well... perhaps not.
As an adult, Audrey witnessed and experienced drug abuse, estrangement from her family, disinheritance by her parents, a twenty-year union with a now-deceased alcoholic neuropsychologist, an attempted rape by an emotionally disturbed teenage male, and was told of three alleged family suicides.
Despite all that (or perhaps because of all that, she likes to say) Audrey became a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and earned her Doctorate in Psychology. She also pioneered a journal writing method to help herself and others heal old wounds — finding hope, recovery, and redemption.
Audrey has written multiple novels and screenplays. Two of Audrey’s screenplays made it to the finals of Mr. Steven Spielberg’s Chesterfield Writing Competition, and a third screen-play made it to the finals of Mr. Redford’s Sundance Competition. She currently lives on a houseboat in California.
