About the Author
Housley always knew she had a passion for entertaining others through the written word, so after graduating with a degree in advertising at Iowa State University in Ames, she traded in her snowsuit for 0 SPF suntan lotion and attended the widely respected advertising industry darling, Miami Ad School, in Florida. At MAS, she learned to write snappy TV, print, radio, and web ads for a broad audience. She also dabbled in stand-up comedy and realized that stories of her small-town childhood made people laugh. A lot.
Along with her sister, Courtnee, Housley wrote a successful blog, Fifty2Resolutions, to document their goal of accomplishing 52 resolutions in 52 weeks. The first week Fifty2Resolutions hit the web, it was ranked number 55 on Wordpress's top 100 growing blogs of the day.
Today, Housley lives in Chicago with her husband, Eric. After a decade of crafting product-focused copy, she is thrilled to write in her own voice about a subject that means the world to her.

Bree Housley has done the impossible by turning the darkest of topics into an epidemic of hope, awareness, laughter and love. You will not read this story and be left with the empty pit of sadness. You will read this story and truly understand, for the first time perhaps, that life is what we make of it. You will be inspired to push yourself outside of your comfort zone, live each day to the fullest, and most of all, appreciate each and every person in your life and every precious moment you have together.
Shelly's life had purpose. Thanks to Bree and the positive effect her book will have in the lives of all who read it, Shelly's death can have purpose too. I did not know Shelly, but like all who read this book, I feel like I do, and I feel confident when I say that infecting the world with her spirit is the best gift anyone could have ever given to her. Frankly, this book is one of the best gifts to humankind.
You would be remiss not to do yourself the favor of reading the story that will change your life. . .if you let it.
People began to look at me like I was a weirdo. The person in the seat next to me suddenly gave me space. Someone in the back hit the "Talk to conductor" button.
Bree, you wrote a heck of a book. Even if it resulted in one of the most embarrassing commutes of my life.
