Twenty-five years in the making; Grant’s novel, Women’s fiction, based on true events, shows the flip side of addiction. Focusing on the families and loved ones of addicts and how they become The Silent and Forgotten Ones.
Written from the author’s own experience, Grant explains; even though these events took place decades ago, today drug and opioid addiction continues to spiral out of control and is at an all-time high. Heroin usage has hit a record high because it’s much cheaper than prescription drugs and can be easily bought on the streets.
We hear about these numbers all the time, but we never hear about the loved ones of addicts and how their lives have been affected. Every day is a fight for survival. Normality doesn’t exist. As the addiction intensifies, so does the abuse and violence.
Grant’s novel, RECKLESS BEGINNINGS is one woman’s story, (Tammy Mellows) trying to make sense of the chaos surrounding her life and fighting to gain it back. A strong woman hides her tears from the rest of the world. Her journey shows that anyone in these situations has choices and that they don’t have to settle.
