An Award-winning Memoir!

National Indie Excellence Award Finalist

Never Give in to Fear: Laughing All the Way Up from Rock Bottom is a 2013 National Indie Excellence Award Finalist. This darkly funny, dramatic memoir describes a standup comic's drug-fueled descent into the underworld, escape from human traffickers, homelessness, and ultimate redemption. With brutal honesty, humor, and clarity, the author vividly describes her experiences as she rides her downward spiral: a near-miss with a notorious serial killer, a series of tragically hilarious misadventures in the California drug world, and a terrifying account of imprisonment at the hands of Japanese organized crime, to name a few. This revised and re-edited version contains three additional chapters that introduce readers to quirky characters, insights into standup comedy, resilience and recovery, and deliver an inspiring message about healing, hope, and courage to change.
