Optimistic Author Julie Vincent Acknowledges Light at the End of the Tunnel in “Travels Within”

Julie VincentThe art and poetry presented in “Travels Within” was inspired in a time when Julie Vincent had been enduring her own personal trials and tribulations, and she was extremely distressed. After having escaped domestic violence, and being embroiled in a battle over housing and her children, she felt isolated, pessimistic and even suicidal. Through it all, she was still fervently committed to and excited by the research she was conducting and the opportunity it presented. It was through this that the art and poetry she was able to create came to be.

From PRWeb:

“Travels Within” (published by Xlibris AU) explores Vincent’s intimate journey of completing her doctoral degree while escaping domestic violence. This involved a monumental struggle for her existence. She considered it as a very dark time, but as Vincent was researching the journeys of people who were in or who had been through their own dark times, it was also a time of exploration of her own and others’ internal turmoil.

This book captures the effect of domestic violence and a history of child sexual abuse on mental health. It travels through the emotional pain of grief, loss, depression, suicide, despair and hopelessness to discover in the face of these difficulties, treasures like strength, hope and light.

“What I hope people find in “Travels Within” is inspiration for their own journey; to not be afraid of the dark times. Even in the dark times, though you may not yet see it, there is a hope, and a future,” says the author.

Christine Brown Helps Readers Triumph Over Tragedy with ‘In Just a Split Second’

'It Could Happen to You' by Christine BrownChristine Brown is the author of “In Just a Split Second,” a book that helps people to cope with the sudden and tragic loss of a loved one.

“In Just a Split Second” begins with the excited anticipation of a long-awaited dream. With their three boys and other self-selected parental obligations finally behind them, Tom and Chris Brown were looking forward to a comfortable retirement—enjoying a wonderful southern California home to themselves, entertaining adult friends and acquaintances, which they loved to do, traveling to exotic destinations, and deciding what to pursue by choice, not by commitment.

After drawn into the dream early in the book, the reader is suddenly plunged into Chris Brown’s shock, disbelief, and confusion caused by an instantaneous turn of fate. In the blink of an eye, her husband died unexpectedly prior to a simple 45-minute outpatient procedure. Chris’s life plummeted instantly from dream to nightmare.

After weeks, months, even years of confusion, all the time harboring the feeling that something was terribly wrong, Chris relentlessly investigated Tom’s death to uncover the truth. Her husband never should have died but was the victim of negligent medical malpractice.

Over the next five years, Chris persisted and prevailed through a high-profile lawsuit. More importantly, she endured the morass of discovering and locating the legal documents needed in the case of a lost loved one. As a result, she offers a book that identifies the mountain of documents that one needs in such a case to help those in similar circumstances or to help prepare people for the inevitable trauma that everyone faces.*

Ms. Brown also does public speaking on the subject of traumatic death. Her workshops cover preparation and document preparation, and dealing with the loss and bereavement process. Previously, Ms. Brown endured the hardship of a sudden, tragic death of someone close to her. She authored “In Just A Split Second” in order to assist any woman or man who is faced with legal and end-of-life issues. The book is designed to help individuals to identify with others, minimize the confusion during a very chaotic time, and take concrete steps to move their lives forward — particularly when they are confronted with the feeling that there is no reason to go on. Ms. Brown endeavors to provide insight, and hopefully prevent the devastating turmoil that results from tragic loss.
