It has been many years since my brother took his life, and the results can still be felt in our family. We have all grown and adjusted to it, but it took a long time. Since then I have become an author, teacher and presenter of writing. My newest book is Blossoms of the Lower Branches, a Hero's Journey Through Grief.
