Many years ago when my son was just over a year old I rented a room from a beautiful young mom and her family. This was the beginning of a wonderful friendship with Maggie May Ethridge and her amazing clan.
Despite her husband's battle with bi-polar disorder and the complications of raising a blended family, Maggie has managed to make her marriage work for over a decade, an undeniable feat in today's climate of instant gratification and divorce. Through fearlessly sharing her most intimate thoughts on her blog, Flux Capacitor, she has inspired an audience who have often been ignored.
Knowing how hard Maggie has worked in order to keep writing, I was exceptionally proud to discover that her first book is going to be published tomorrow. I asked if I could interview her about the book and her writing.
Below is the interview with Maggie May Ethridge on the release of her memoir, Scenes From a Marriage, a candid look at her relationship with her husband before and after he became ill with bi-polar disorder.
Scenes From a Marriage comes out tomorrow May 28th, 2014 on Shebooks.net.
Since becoming a mom to a little boy with Trisomy 21 I have written a lot about Down syndrome and disabilities. I am a storyteller, wife and mom to a teen and a toddler. Life is busy!
