Successful Storyteller

“After 26 years of mental health darkness ended, before the true stories began and time travel became inevitable, when light was the only thing I could see and I knew I’d never descend into darkness again, this Rebirth Program was born … and I was wrong about a few things.”

– Rene

“Many mental health books for adults exist and I had no intention of adding to that pile. I originally wrote this addiction memoir to craft my story for the stage … but then realized its profound effect on my offstage life. So whether you craft your story for the stage or real life, may my memoir heal your inner child.”
