Calling All Authors

Author Interview Questions and Submission Process.

In December 2012 I had the privilege to do Author Interviews with three newly published friends and blogging acquaintances of mine. I found that it was something I really enjoyed and was an opportunity for me to introduce new blogs, new books, and new writers to my readers here.  So, I have decided to make it a regular feature. How regular a feature will depend on how many authors decide to let me interview them.

If you, or anyone you know, is a published author (self or otherwise), with a personal tale of growth, healing, and recovery that you are willing to share, please click the link above or share the link. I would love to hear from you or them and work together to put together a quality interview to be featured here on Human In Recovery.



Sometimes you just need to…


It has been a very full day, emotionally and psychologically speaking.  Actually, I guess the past couple of days have been that way for me.  Wrestling and coming to terms with the knowledge that sex/love addiction has been at the root and foundation of the majority of the relationships in my life, as a child and as an adult.  Figuring out that the emotional disconnect between me, myself & I as well as between us and all others is part of the sla known as Emotional Anorexia, all while navigating the minefield of personal relationships with my adult children and the father of my toddler, has got me very wound up and wiped out.

So, I guess it’s back to Step 1 for me – admitting powerlessness over:

Compulsive Overeating (coe)



my family members

Love/relationship addiction &

Sexual/Social/Emotional Anorexia

my life is unmanageable.

I’m so very grateful that I am integrating with Step 2 on a regular basis, because I am believing more and more that a power greater than myself can restore me to sanity.

Now, to implement Step 3 and follow through on making the decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God as I understand him.  Lord help me to do this.

Currently, I’m going through this process without a sponsor or active recovery partners.  However, through online meetings and resources I’m starting to reach out and connect with others in the recovery journey.  Through this blog, I’ve been connecting to others as well, and getting to see that recovery is not only possible, but attainable.  Through it all I’m learning that what I have been told is true – I am not abandoned, forsaken, or condemned (these lies I’ve believed as truth), I am loved.
