Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book saved my life when my youngest was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia less than a year after I read it. I wasn't scared, I knew what questions to ask, and I knew what to stay away from. It is one of the most important books I have ever read, even though it's fiction. The fact that we can accept our child's illness can be laid squarely at the author's feet. I never would have understood the complexity of schizophrenia had I not read the book." -Dawn M.

From the Author

I've always been fascinated by human behavior and intrigued by how a person's environment and genetic background influences their behavior. When I sat down to write Playing the Genetic Lottery my goal was to create a page-turner that would explore that question through an engaging novel. By the time I finished the book my goals expanded. I hope my novel will help educate people about schizophrenia, how it can be treated, and how family members and close friends are impacted when a loved one is ill, as well as entertain readers. By raising awareness about schizophrenia, I hope to raise compassion. I also hope my novel validates the experiences of families and caregivers, and helps remind them of how valuable their love and support is.
