Passing Myself Down to the Grave, A Woman’s Rise From Darkness

Synopsis
Passing Myself Down to the Grave, A Woman’s Rise from Darkness is a personal memoir that retells a spiritual journey through “the Hades of my existence.” I awoke one day in 2001, with a sense of dread and anxiety that had never existed before. Slowly, day after day, my soul drained away, and my life resembled The Book of Job where Satan said to God, “Take everything away from Job and see if he still believes in you.” That’s exactly what happened to me. In 2002, I received the devastating news I had breast cancer. From that moment until 2013 I trudged through my twelve -year exodus of despair. I fought off internal and external demons, yet mystical and miraculous experiences occurred throughout.

This tale acts as preventative medicine for women who have entered darkness, no matter what the reason, then search for a helping hand out. It will also show that one can be reborn again and succeed in life no matter how old. Another inimitable aspect of Passing Myself Down to the Grave, is a full- length screenplay exists within the story. I wrote a short movie called Passing in October 2013.   Strangely, the main character Cleo, a forty-year-old mother whose life was destroyed by cancer and chemo, seemed to have morphed into a full feature heroine. Cleo, Rory and Levy, (two young men) meet as strangers, randomly, in a forest, but all have the same the mission… to kill themselves. Although each person desires to die, each character discourages the others not to. This story is juxtaposed against the reality of my account.

Like The Book of Job, God took everything away from me; my physical and mental health, my material and emotional security… however God gave everything back. Want to find out how?

A quote from a book review written by Dr. Michael Berlin, film/television writer/ filmmaker/psychologist:

“I couldn’t put this book down until I turned the last page. It isn’t often that a personal story is so compelling, so filled with truths and insights that the reader finds oneself “inside” the story.”

A quote from a book review written by Mick Carlon, author of Riding on Duke’s Train, Travels With Louis, and Lady Singer:

Passing Myself Down to the Grave may not be for the faint of heart, but for those willing to take a journey with a fearless writer, this exceptional memoir is a bracing and inspiring tale, told with grace and guts.”
