Details about Depression Cookies = D: Blogging from A to Z

It's D-day of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, and I couldn't resist the opportunity to highlight Depression Cookies, the novel I co-wrote with my mother, Angela Silverthorne.

We are currently working on the follow-up, which we hope to release later this year.



Two distinct voices, two stories interwoven within the walls of family and love.

2011 Readers Favorite Book Awards, Silver for Realistic Fiction & Finalist Chick Lit
2011 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Finalist Chick Lit

Depression Cookies is a coming of age story woven around the heart of family triumph. It is told from two distinct vantage points, middle-aged mother, Abby, and her teenage daughter, Krista.

Abby is buckling under the weight of a husband who is climbing the corporate ladder, three daughters each with their own unique needs, a mother who is going off the deep end and family health issues. As she is meeting everyone else's needs, her own keep surfacing. She feels she is losing parts of herself daily and doesn't know how to handle the stress and conflict. All she truly wants is a little magic in her life.

Krista is thirteen, battling acne and low self-esteem, when her father waltzes in and announces the family is moving again. Instead of letting fear and anxiety rule her life, she is determined to survive the trenches of teenage cruelty and family issues without completely losing herself in the process.

What neither expects to find is the true essence of magic in the strength, friendship, power and energy of the female spirit.
