Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 12.34.10 PMI am thrilled to have finally released my book, “Murdering My Youth” on Amazon this April. The reviews have been humbling.

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

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

Michael Fairman of “On-Air On Soaps” said he was “…riveted and heartbroken.”

Finally Matt Rozsa of Policy Mic says, “…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.”

All this and 34 FIVE STAR REVIEWS on Amazon! I am truly blown away.

I have 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 these books I was asked to speak at the Wisdom House on a panel discussing acceptance and rejection in the arts.  Later I shared my work at UCONN as part of the Litchfield Country Writers Project. I have also spoken on the creative process with Joe Montello on WVOX for his program “Between the Covers,”and at The Oliver Wolcott Library in Litchfield, CT.

    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.
