Patricia L. Brooks – Sick as my Secrets

Sick as My Secrets, the third memoir, of award-winning author Patricia L. Brooks, is a powerful, compassionate, moving memoir told by a strong and honest woman who overcame a desperate need for alcohol to handle stress in her young life. Patricia, immensely proud of her thirty-five years of sobriety, openly and lovingly reveals her compelling story of powerlessness, her journey to recovery, and a spiritual transformation from the lowest point in her life to the apex of her trust in God. Her tale is a testament to resilience, perseverance, and hope for all of us. This is a must-read for anyone recovering from addiction, asking questions about recovery, or curious about how a situation like this can happen to a not-so-ordinary young woman with a bright future.

This advocate for addiction awareness and domestic violence awareness speaks regularly with her books to various audiences to fulfill her purpose of helping others. She is the award-winning author of Gifts of Sisterhood-journey from grief to gratitude and Three Husbands and a Thousand Boyfriends. Ms. Brooks is also the president/founder of the Scottsdale Society of Women Writers, a group she founded over 13 years ago.
