    In the process of reading it now and I can’t put it down (well I did just for a few minutes so I could go online 🙂 ).

    I am reading your book on OCD (I have the glorious disorder too) You are a very gifted writer. Write another on on the same topic! Seriously. Your poetic approach does wonders on a topic that is in itself strangely poetic

    Traci, You’re honesty and humor as a writer, well, floors me. You drew my into your world immediately and I was with you 100%. I loved “Nowhere Near Normal” and cannot wait until your next book! (I hope it’s soon!!!)
