    Addiction Is the Symptom

    I am cowriter with Dr. Rosemary Ellsworth Brown of Addiction Is the Symptom. The book describes Dr. Brown’s revision of the traditional Twelve Steps to target what she identifies as the underlying cause of all addiction: emotional dependency. Dr. Brown, a psychologist, contacted me with the goal of introducing her step method to a wide audience. I proceeded to merge and rework two previous, unpublished manuscripts, helping Dr. Brown to revisit the interpretation and execution of her step method in the process. I was also deeply involved in the publication process and subsequent marketing effort. The beautiful cover design is by book specialist Rebecca Neimark of Twenty-six Letters.
