I’m very pleased to be part of Rose Candis’ cover reveal for her memoir, UNDER THE BED AROUND THE WORLD.
Here is a bit about the Author:
Rose Candis lives with her daughter Erica, fiancé Patrick, step-daughter Lucy and two cats in Kentucky. She has a private psychotherapy practice where she specializes in eating disorders and trauma. In 2011, Rose returned to China in search of Erica’s birth mother. Since that time, their story has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and The Pulitzer Center for Crisis reporting. Rose met with the Executive Congressional Commission on China in DC three times from 2012-2013 to encourage reform for more transparent adoptions in China.
Here is the book blurb:
Under the Bed Across the World, Rose’s poignant account of her journey from incest and addiction into recovery, is both tragic and humorous. Her account of how her sexually abusive Jewish father divided her loyalty between him, her mother, and herself provides a microcosm for how sexual abuse and addiction destroy the human family. By confronting her past, Rose sheds her loyalty to her abusive relatives and creates her own unique family unit through international adoption. The memoir raises the question: Can contentment be found after departure from the quagmire of toxicity?
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character meets his or her adopted child’s birth parent(s).
