MY NEMESIS BOOK DESCRIPTION Volume I: The Mind’s Eye:
After a tragic storm claims the lives of Joy Anderson’s family, Joy awakes to find herself strapped to a bed, afraid of her own reflection. “My Husband and children are alive, their bodies were never recovered,” Joy yells hysterically at the crowd of spectators expressing their condolences. Joy’s delusional sightings of her children and husband become the highlight of conversation for friends, family, and business associates. The once prized literary agent and book guru has lost her senses, fighting with her reflection and talking aloud to presumably no one.
Samantha, Joy’s younger sister, is faced with a chance to live beyond her sister’s shadow. She must either choose to save Joy from her behavioral dysfunctions or her already troublesome marriage. Joy’s Mother n Law continues to plan a memorial service Joy refuses to attend, while Sam’s Husband Charles and business partner of Joy’s late husband Justin sets his sights on a fund that could clear his name of all gambling debts.

LIKE MY LIFE HONESTLY AFTER SERIES, BASED ON MY JOURNEY THROUGH MY PERSONAL ILLNESS AND RECOVERY. THIS STORY IS BASED ON TRUE EVENTS ALTHOUGH SET WITH FICTIONAL CHARACTERS. I WAS EXPERIENCING A TIME WHERE MY BROTHER HAD PASSED DURING THIS WRITE. MY PAIN IS WRITTEN IN THESE VERY PAGES. JOY WAS PLANNING A FUNERAL FOR HER LOST LOVED ONES BUT SHE HAD YET TO COME TO TERMS THAT THEY WERE TRULY GONE. THOSE VERY EMOTIONS THAT JOY TACKLES WITH HER ALTER EGO ARE VERY REAL IN COMPARISON TO MY OWN EXPERIENCE WITH LOSS.
