My memoir Things Nobody Knows But Me about being parented by a mother with bipolar was published by Transit Lounge in 2019. I am now narrating the audiobook to be published within the next few months. This was the book of my heart that I spent 20 years writing and was so happy that it got published. Here's an outtake from the recording where I share one of the stories my grandfather told me.
