About the Author
Kathryn Vercillo was born and raised in Tucson, AZ but fell in love with the city of San Francisco the moment that she saw it. She’s been living in San Francisco for over a decade, and she thrives on the creativity and celebration of creative expression that this city nurtures, although she still has a bit of the whimsical desert spirit in her heart. Kathryn is a freelance writer and indie author who has written across a diverse array of mediums and topic areas. She especially loves to write about the intersection between crafting/ creativity (with an emphasis on crochet) and the mental health/ wellness/ personal growth. Hook to Heal is an outgrowth of exactly this type of writing. Kathryn is also the author of: • Crochet Saved My Life: The Mental and Physical Health Benefits of Crochet • Cracked Wide Open: Essays, Musings, and Observations from My First Year as a Counseling Psychology Grad Student • When Grandma Isn’t Crocheting, She’s Hunting Big Game (a collection of very brief articles about awesome older people who crochet) • Ghosts of San Francisco and Ghosts of Alcatraz Most importantly, Kathryn believes in writing from the heart, allowing her work to radiate outward from the center and into the world, where she hopes it can improve lives and affect change. She believes that self-expression is the key to self-realization and also the key to connecting communities. You can find Kathryn online at www.kathrynvercillo.com, www.crochetconcupiscence.com, and diaryofasmartchick.com. She is active across all social media; links can be found on Crochet Concupiscence.

I am particularly interested in the journaling prompts, and unfortunately, that's where the Kindle version has a problem. As you can see in the screenshot taken on my iPad, the prompts are presented in a box that cuts off some of the text. The problem is worse on my Voyage, where the boxes and type are so small as to be almost unreadable. The text in the boxes does not resize with a change in settings as the main text does.
There are a grand total of 100 exercises to try! I particularly like the exercises under the self-esteem topic on turning negative crafty talk into positive affirmations. I practice yoga and have tried unsuccessfully over the years to meditate, attempting to observe and chase negative thoughts from my mind. I just can't do it and it makes me feel even more of a failure than when I started out! I find that replacing the negative with positive is so much better for my self-esteem. And reading Kathryn's crafty spin on this is just marvelous!
This book would be great if you're already into crochet, like me. If you're a beginner that's OK too because it's suitable for all levels of ability. I even think the book would be a fantastic resource for professionals who provide crochet as therapy (a growing area).
