Author and psychologist Dr. Kixx Goldman presents her new collection of short stories inspired by her own experiences and those of her clients.
A devoted father and his daughter find hope in rewriting their past. With remarkable grit, a teacher escapes a surprise attack. A man conquers his fears and heals his childhood wounds. A therapist defies the establishment to protect her clients, and another stands up to the church. As the characters in these stories find the courage to triumph over their challenges, they heal and grow. "You, too," the author says, "can follow your inner voice, speak from your heart, claim your power, and fulfill your life."
Added feature: Kixx in conversation with author and editor, Windy Lynn Harris.
