I Killed Mom and Other Lies I Tell Myself: A Memoir

When rule-abiding Mandy is seven, her doting mom dies at Christmastime from a brain aneurysm. Her rebellious brother becomes her only comfort in their emotionally-suppressive home. But he leaves her, too.

By her late twenties, Mandy has achieved everything expected of a good Midwestern girl: she’s married a nice man, bought a house, and excelled in her career. But after changing jobs, she finds herself bedbound by depression. Frustrated that she’s not over her losses yet, Mandy tries everything she can think of: penpalling, online shopping, psychotherapy, running… Once life begins to brighten, tragedy strikes a second time. But Mandy’s no quitter.

Both tear-jerking and hilarious, I Killed Mom and Other Lies I Tell Myself is a hopeful memoir of love, loss, and remembering how to play.

“Wonderful, poignant account of life after early loss and its repercussions.” –Laura Joyce-Hubbard, award-winning author

“A beautiful and honest look at the journey of depression. It is a portrait of how holding in your feelings can strangle you. I loved reading. One detail after the next rung so true to my inner child.” –Dixie Perkinson, actor and writer
