“…a story of emotional survival that is raw, wild and shocking, yet also dazzlingly funny.”  ~Michael Logan, TV Guide 

“…a powerful text and critique of a dangerous society… an amazing story of survival and—in spite of it all—unconditional love.”  ~Shannon Houston, Paste Magazine 

“I was riveted and heartbroken.” Michael Fairman, “On-Air On Soaps”

“…her book is unique because of the degree to which it illuminates the whole by coming to an understanding of a small part. She doesn’t set out to preach or globalize her individual experiences, but simply to tell her story.” ~Matt RozsaPolicy Mic

Cady has also written two books of poetry and art, “Conversations with the Invisible,” chosen as a “staff pick” by Blurb, and “Licked.”   Both books are available through Blurb or at the Hickory Stick Bookshop in Washington, CT.

As a result of her poetry, Cady was asked to speak at The Wisdom House in Litchfield, CT on a panel discussing acceptance and rejection in the arts.  Later she shared her work at UCONN as part of the Litchfield Country Writers Project.

  1. Cady, awesome book. I couldn’t laugh though, it hit me to close to home. It always shocks me to find people who have lived some of the same experiences I have. Be well.
