“Inside of all of us there is the need and the desire to be heard, to have our innermost thoughts, feelings and desires expressed for others to hear, to see and to understand. We all want to matter to someone, to leave a mark. Writers just take those thoughts, feelings and desires and express them in such a way that the reader not only reads them but feels them as well.”
“An author, whether good or bad, or between both, is an animal whom everybody is privileged to attack: for though all are not able to write books, all conceive themselves able to judge them.”
Matthew Gregory Lewis
"Chasing Death is NOT a grief recovery book, but one that attempts to put candid and heartrending words to the often incommunicable pain, guilt and despair that the surviving families endure, not only through the telling of the author's story, but through the experiences of other families mourning the loss of a child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, friend or relative to suicide.
The aim of the book is to raise money for charity and provide an anonymous platform for bereaved families to express their darkest thoughts and emotions."
I removed my book from Amazon in 2016 and made it available only via this website so that it reaches the people who genuinely wish to read it. It will also enable me to communicate directly with readers, should they so wish, particularly those seeking comfort from someone who is further along the grieving road. You can order the hard copy via my publisher, or the e-book directly via the link above. There are, however, some re-sellers on Amazon who are trying to sell the book at a ridiculous price. Don't be fooled into paying anything more than the correct prices above.
