For Immediate Release:

International Best-selling Author & Global Award Winning Speaker invites community to book launch at Paramount 

Author and Motivational Speaker, Felicia Johnson, invites the community of parents,educators and consumers to a free Public Book Release Party on youth advocacy, mental health and wellness with the follow up to her first best selling novel “HER” and the release of the spin off trilogy called “OK Danny Boy” volumes one, two and three.

Felicia Johnson is a best selling author, sought-after speaker, youth mentor, mental health advocate who readily engages an audience with the moving story behind her latest book, “Her”. The novel is the story of a young woman with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) who courageously peels back the layers of her complex and serious mental illness in a desperate attempt to understand it.

Johnson brings remarkable insight and understanding to an illness that affects 1-2 % of the population and wreaks havoc on the lives and relationships of young men and women. She has worked for nearly 10 years in the mental health field and she is an abuse survivor. She runs workshops and does keynote speeches on various topics, especially on working with and approaching friends, families and colleagues with mental illness. Her profound story and educational background is sure to inspire your audience.

While mental health issues are more freely discussed these days, it is still difficult to approach someone who might have a problem. But ignoring it is not an option. With courage and great hope, Felicia Johnson deftly portrays the struggles of a girl with borderline personality disorder in “Her” (8th Street Publishing). “Her” takes readers into the mind of someone who is suffering so they can get a first person view of a painful mental disorder,” says Johnson. “The story is an example of how, if we try to push the past away we are either doomed to repeat it or let it haunt us to our graves”

Johnson says, “The story is inspired by my life of survival and my childhood best friend, Holly, who suffered from BPD. Holly lost her battle with depression and BPD when she was 15 years old and took her own life. ‘Her’ also illuminates the harsh reality of child abuse in the home and the long-term psychological effects it has on everyone involved.”

The spin off of “HER” is called “OK Danny Boy”. This trilogy follows the story of an artistic and mysterious young man who Kristen meets during her stay in Bent Creek Hospital. Daniel proved to be a supportive peer, whom Kristen saw as a positive influence throughout her recovery. However, Daniel had not always been a role model. Daniel is diagnosed with Bi-Polar Disorder, OCD and Juvenile Diabetes. His story follows his journey throughout his healing and learning to cope with life’s transitions, coming of age, living with mental illness as well as a physical illness and the suicide of a close friend.

I’m Still Standing by Mildred Muhammad Review Goodreads

I'm Still Standing: Crawling Out of the Darkness Into the LightI’m Still Standing: Crawling Out of the Darkness Into the Light by Mildred D Muhammad

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a great follow up to Mildred Muhammad’s first book called “Scared Silent”. It answered a lot of questions regarding how she and her children dealt with the execution of John Muhammad. It had a lot of great points about being a survivor of domestic violence. One great point was made that domestic violence can take many forms. It doesn’t always show with physical scars. I’m glad to see Mildred Muhammad “come out of darkness” to become an advocate and successful author, but most of all a good mother to her children. Great, motivational read for survivors of domestic violence.

Mind Power and Healthy Eating : The Art of Losing Weight and Staying HealthyMind Power and Healthy Eating : The Art of Losing Weight and Staying Healthy by Josephine Spire

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I like educational reads that aren’t preachy but are actually helpful. It reads almost like a thesis! “Mind Power and Healthy Eating: The Art of Losing Weight and Staying Healthy” by Josephine Spire is a very thorough guide that breaks down the facts on how and why we should maintain a healthy lifestyle. It’s not for someone who is looking to get on a quick diet and lose weight. This book is for people who want to live a healthy life and stick with a certain type of healthy lifestyle. I like that it starts with mind centering techniques before getting into the physical improvement aspect. I can appreciate that aspect because our mind has to focus and be in the right place before we can move forward. That’s to get you more aware of what will and won’t work for you in choosing what healthy lifestyle work’s for you. In the next part of the book it breaks down foods, exercises and gives wisdom to the reader on practicing mindfulness. You have to be aware of what works for you because not everyone is the same. And I appreciate that Spire makes it clear that you must choose what will work for you so that you can stick to it and live your life healthily. All in all, it is a helpful and easy guide to read and offers great exercises, techniques and wisdom. I breezed right through it. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to not only lose weight, but those who want to become more mindful of their bodies and chose a way to live a healthy life.

Help Me! by Donna M. Zadunajsky Book Review

HELP ME! (HELP ME! #1)HELP ME! by Donna M. Zadunajsky

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Help Me! by Donna M. Zadunajsky was a very interesting read. I liked it because it read like a personal journal from the the first point of view of the main characters. I’m a huge fan of journaling, so the writing style felt voyeuristic. It was avant-garde in a sense that the writing style is not what I am used to reading in a book.

It’s like reading a book on social media. As the reader, you’re taken into the private thoughts and experiences of two main characters. Mick is suicidal and depressed after losing his best friend to suicide. Layla is Mick’s new best friend that he acquires after he moves to his father’s home following the loss of his late best friend. We get to see the perspectives of teenage life, love and friendship through the thoughts of Mick and Layla. I like the interchanging approach to the chapters so that we can see the point of views from both characters and know what they’re both thinking and feeling within each scene that plays out. We’re not left with many questions as both main characters cover their own thoughts and emotions, themselves, without leaving it to a third narrator’s POV. The style is unique. Therefore, it made it feel personal.

Overall, it was a fast paced, good read. I hope that there’s more to come.

Book Review: Gift of Desperation by Robim M. Gilliam

robin1

Gift of Desperation by Robin M. Gilliam is one of the most moving and provocatively written stories I’ve read about healing and recovery from addiction.

Claire Sebastion is a cleverly written character. She pulls at your nerves and your heart as we follow her journey of recovery from addiction. She is a charming and well-written character. Using her sexuality and alcohol as a means to escape from her life, Claire finds herself in a dark, heavy and perilous place in her life. When she discovers her talent and passion for art through Art & Healing, Claire takes the courage and time to face her past and chooses to start anew. She chooses to allow herself to heal. With the help of other strong characters, such as Evi and Aunt Jo, the story is carried on a rushing wave of emotional prose in Claire’s voyage to restored mental and physical health.

Claire’s story is one of hope. She uses art as an escape from her confines of desperation. The art that is described in the book is so clear, vivid and open that readers can see the images with their own minds eye. The art seems genuine. The story is clearly cathartic and could very well have elements to it that are real. There is a very strong message and inspirational lesson in Gift of Desperation. It is simply to not give up no matter how hard it is to give up an addiction. Many vices enrapture us. Although our vices are different, addiction is real and our mental health matters.
