A true story of hope, belief, failure, need and greed – one person’s struggle with addiction and their road to redemption.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live on the ‘other side’ or longed to change your life? In To Live a Life, the author offers an unflinching tale of experimenting with drugs and alcohol in pursuit of getting ‘out there’… only to discover once immersed, there seems no way back.

This raw memoir leads readers on a turbulent journey of addiction battling emotion, clinging to life, and ultimately seeking survival. Travel the so-called ‘rocky road’ of substance abuse leading to utter dependence...when you’d do ‘anything’ to ‘get on,’ followed by the agonizing revelation you’d now give anything to “get off.

More than an addiction story, this is a universal testament to the human capacity for change and the power of community in bettering our lives when we’ve lost our way. There is always hope if we want it badly enough.

Growing up in a small town in country Melbourne, Victoria, I started writing when I was about sixteen. Then, I was mainly writing freehand and also kept journals of my experiences. I have also written poetry and have been an artist, with drawings.

As I grew up, I tried my hand at many places of employment, from take away food, to horticulture and everything in between.

After 30 years, I changed my life, my outlook, my passions and interests.

Finding myself again… To Live a Life and write a book!
