I just finished the manuscript for my first book-a two part memoir.  Part one begins with the attempted suicide of my father.  Then I explore the quirkiness of my childhood on the road, the struggle of getting out of the grip of Christian legalism in the South, my struggle with suicide attempts and bi polar mania, my marriage at 19 to a man who struggles to love me and my joyous entrance into motherhood.  
In part 2, I document my year long mental breakdown. I document my decent into hopelessness, suicidal obsessions, being locked up in psych wards, what insanity feels like, and my struggle to get out of them alive.
