About the Author
Monique Colver is an accountant, a bookkeeper, and a writer, not necessarily in that order. She was first paid for writing by America Online, but don't hold that against her. She was born, and someday she will die, and in the middle she hopes to make people happy. Monique has written for military publications, business publications, and general interest publications. She avoids crowds but loves people, and she likes numbers but words are even better.

The authors tell a wonderful, compassionate, loving story. In addition, there is so much information about the experience of mental illness, the struggles and joys of being a caregiver, and all the accompanying isolation and stress.
This is a book for so many people. Those who suffer or stand by. Those who make decisions about social service and medical care. Those who set policy.
More than all that, this book is about being human. Being in relationship with a personal through joy and strife. Relationship that is a covenant - not a convenience - and that is based on mutual care and trust and love.
You will be moved and inspired - all in beautiful words and all with a fun energy that keeps you smiling even if the smile is sometimes bittersweet.
Stew wrote parts of this book as he was going through many life changing experiences. He wanted people to know that there is help out there, and with the support of a caregiver like Monique anything is possible.
They are very special people. I should know, Stewart was my son.
This story is really one you'll not soon forget. It's a story about love, friendship, illness, happiness, sadness, love affairs. It holds all the qualities of any good fiction. Unfortunately, it's not fiction. This is real life with true heartfelt emotions.
More than anything, this story is honest. It's honest in its writing, its emotions, and its characters. Monique and Stew have graciously and fearlessly opened up their lives for us all to peer into. Hopefully, we all can take away something from this book - whether it be about the disease of mental illness, the patient, or the caregiver.
