As most who read this blog know in 2018 one of my best friends, Ali Child, died by her own hand. Nothing to this day in the world has hurt more than the moment I found that out.

When I wrote my book, Failure to Thrive, Lissa (as I called her) was so excited to read it. I asked her if I could quote her at the beginning of it and she was thrilled. Instead of sending her a copy when it was published, I had to add a death date to the quote. I hated doing that.

The moment I heard of her death, I knew that Through the Eyes of A Friend needed to be written. I didn’t know the name yet, but I immediately started writing. The prologue was actually written about 15-30 minutes after learning what happened as I tried to process.

Please help others and yourself so that this doesn’t continue to happen! Suicide is becoming an epidemic and it needs to stop!
