About the Author

This book began as a therapeutic exercise after the death of the author's daughter. Some years the manuscript was expanded into a book and published to help parents of children with anxiety disorders recognize what is happening when a child's behaviour changes and to let them know that they are not alone. After a long career as an advertising copywriter, developer/designer of business communications materials and researcher/editor/ghostwriter of a number of small press non-fiction books, Jean Jardine Miller is now concentrating on writing her own novels, featuring Canadian families and the challenges they face in life. A consistently increasing audience is enjoying the first three, "Fate and Angus McGrath", "Daffodil Dancing" and The Family History" and she has recently published "From Ragged London to the Garden of Eden" which follows the lives of a young brother and sister brought to Canada from the East End of London as child immigrants in nineteenth century. Jean lives in Shelburne, a small Ontario town, where she runs the SPCA thrift store, is active in community theatre and hikes regularly on the nearby Niagara Escarpment, staying busy to keep painful memories at bay.

a touching story written by Kirstin's mother about her daughter's struggle to find an inner peace and place in the world.....good for parents with children with similar problems..and possibly an alertness for things that could have helped..like contact with the family at home ( the family had emigrated ) Family vacations and reunions seemed to help Kirstin.....feel more self confident and safe...J.J.Miller has also started a newsletter for families dealing with anxiety. A noble and homage to her daughter. .

Format: Paperback
Kristen's Story is a mother's tale of panic disorder and social phobia that eventually, after much frustration and dysfunction, lead to her dauther's death by suicide at 19 years of age.
A true story written from the heart, Kristen's Story is straightforward in its telling of how a young family coped with mis-diagnosis and, finally, diagnosis, of the disorder that resulted in Kristen being unable to handle life's basic tasks and experiences.
Young Kristen was an artist, a good friend, and a strong leader who sometimes couldn't manage her fear of new places and people - couldn't handle to the point that she would run away, or curl up in a ball and refuse to move until the fear left her. She became, during the course of her short life, increasingly afraid of school which finally resulted in her not being able to attend at all. Although Kristen was kind and intelligent, and sometimes able to take on big adventures and responsibilities, the panic would creep back unexpectedly and would overwhelm her reason and emotions - and even repeated visits to counselors, psychologists and residential programs couldn't save her from ending her own life.
Kristen's Story is poignant and full of passion, full of the love of a mother for her child, a love that could not cure the daughter's illness but that certainly helped to give her daughter as full and fair a life as possible.
An important book to read because of its definitive information about panic disorders and social phobias, information that is not always easy to find, Kristen's Story engages the reader's mind quickly and is easy to follow. A valuable read for those interested in how to manage anxiety and depression, Kristen's Story is a good reference that will touch your heart.
The book is available from from the publisher's website at [...] as well as online at amazon.ca and booksurge.ca

Format: Paperback
If your looking for a book about being a parent to a teenage Panic/Anxiety sufferer, than would be good. Ms. Miller has a very strong voice. She discusses having to be an advocate for her daughter and the frustrations that went with that. At times her words are so concise that it feels like she had little empathy for her daughter. But this isn't her daughters story, but a parents story. I wish the book had gone past the ultimate ending of her daughters suicide. It is very well written.
