"Never Give In To Fear"

Marti's first work, Never Give in to Fear, is a deeply moving, tragicomic cautionary tale -- a story of hope and redemption, conquering fear, and how love prevails. It chronicles a standup comic's struggle with, and recovery from, addiction. Throughout this narrative, the author is brutally honest about her struggles with addiction. With humor and fearlessness, she takes full responsibility for all of her wrong choices.

But Marti's tale shines with love and forgiveness, and shimmers with hope. It is a powerful comeback story with a dynamic, satisfying closure. Readers come away feeling uplifted; inspired with the concept that hope, love, redemption, and laughs are always with us. Most of all, Never Give in to Fear is just plain fun to read -- never a dull moment!
