My love of traveling and languages was the greatest part of my young adult life. My career in International business was rewarding and exciting. Then I became a mom and the ultimate volunteer. Then my young teenage son became a drug addict and life was never the same. My book "SWEAT: A Practical Plan for Keeping Your Heart Intact While Loving an Addict" is the result of years trying to find something positive out of a terribly negative situation. Not finding it, I produced it. I am proud of the end result.
