Reaching for the Light is now released. Author Marie Krepps and myself put this book together in an effort to fight mental health stigmas and raise mental health awareness.
I hope those who battle everyday with any form of mental illness will find comfort in our stories, understanding you aren't alone. And I hope to inform those who don't deal with mental illness to become aware of how real it is.
My story Bloom also deals with another topic people would rather sweep under the rug than face and those dealing with it are too scared to come out. Jen is an abused woman who suffers from PTSD due to years of mental and physical suffering. This story isn't for the faint of heart or stomach and some may find it tough to read. So many people live Jen's live daily and I hope they will find this story and find comfort in it.

High Heels & Ice Cream by Marie Krepps
Brianna suffers from depression and anxiety, but she won’t let it stop her from moving in with the chatty and attractive Carla. When her attraction to her roommate becomes something more, Brianna has to decide if she will let her inner demons win and run away as usual, or face her fears and admit her true feelings.
Bloom by TL Katt

His bombardment of mental abuse leaves her a shell of a human and her mind unable to let go of the terror, she relives it again and again. Jen’s actions become more impulsive and dangerous.
