My ACOA Life
Bio: I am the author of 'The World outside Our Door' a novel about my father’s life. He was born out of wedlock in a small southern town in the 1910s; his father’s side of the family, who were literally his next door neighbors, did not recognize him. And he grew up with the secret looming around him until he was a teenager. He ultimately became an alcoholic and his alcoholism had a profound effect on me and my siblings. So much so that I’ve been blogging about the effects of being an adult child of an alcoholic since 2015.
