In grade school his teacher told him to have his parents help him with his homework, but his mother - the only parent around - didnt know how. As a young man, Willie smoked pot and easily got into harder drugs. This eventually lead to a life under someones front porch, two prison sentences, numerous trips to jail, and almost as many recovery programs. Living in the House of Drugs is the story of Willie Lee Triplett, a recovering addict and alcoholic. It tells of Willies life in the suburbs of one of Chicago poorer neighborhoods, his chance trip to Wisconsin, and his ongoing struggle for sobriety.

Über den Autor: I am a writer, reader, author, and publisher. I am a mother of two, mostly grown, children and a wife. I consider myself a jack of all trades and master of none. I like working with my hands so when the need or desire arises, I crochet, sew, tile, paint, cross stitch, frame pictures, stain furniture, cut and split fire wood, x-country ski, train and ride horses... But my main love is writing. I started writing in college (a while ago!) and haven't stopped since. For a reason I don't really know, round about 2003 I decided I wanted to write a novel. Up to that point I had been writing short children's stories, but never pursued publication. In March of 2008 Rosebloom was born. And as any writer can tell you, it was a birth! It was perhaps a bit more for me since I self published the work, which isn't particularly hard, but just takes a lot of time. (I didn't use on online method but went through a brick and mortar printer). In 2010 I published book II in the series - A Burnished Rose - and I'm busy on the screenplay for that same story. I published the third and final novel in the Rose Series - Rose from the Ashes - in September, 2012, and Living in the House of Drugs in spring the 2013. I wrote The Red Velvet Box because I was inspired. My newest book project is an historical fiction novel about the creation and creators of Nancy Drew! I'm having the time of my life!
