If I were to tell you the lengths I’ve gone to make my first novel a reality, we’d be here all day.
But what I can tell you, is that the day has finally arrived…
In Body I Trust is Available to Preorder TODAY!
The day has finally arrived for you to officially preorder your copy of In Body I Trust and I couldn’t be more excited to share this moment with you. What you may not have known, is that your preorder will help save lives (keep reading to learn more).
ARE YOU SERIOUS!?!? Yes, yes I am.
In Body I Trust is available to preorder through over 40,000 independent bookstores and retailers around the world. To my friends in Australia, I got you! My homies in Brazil? Psh, no problemo mi amor!
So here is the deal:
This book is a product of what it means to ask for help. And now I’m asking for your help, in order to help others.
10% of the royalties I receive on all preorders from In Body I Trust will be donated to Project H.E.A.L., a nonprofit organization whose mission is to break down systemic, healthcare, and financial barriers to eating disorder treatment.
Your preorder will help towards research for marginalized communities and provide life-saving care for those whom the system fails.
We can do this folks. We can share the message that support and proper care is for everyone. We can show up for people who need us to show up for them.
And don’t forget, no matter what, we are not alone.
We are in this together.

What is In Body I Trust about?
Amelia is about to turn 30, but instead of celebrating, she is overpowered by her battle against anxiety and depression driven by the inner voices of her little monster— her eating disorder.
But as days progress, the mundane becomes the unmanageable. She self-medicates with alcohol and sinks lower into vivid flashbacks of her and Dominic backpacking the world together. One day he went to Guatemala, the next he vanished like a ghost, leaving Amelia to remain in the depths of her eating disorder alone. That is, until she meets Emmett, her new neighbor with schizoaffective disorder she’s deemed as her guardian angel from afar.
Based on a true story, In Body I Trust dives into the mind of Amelia as she struggles to swim from the deepest, darkest parts of herself back to the top, before it’s too late.
This is a story of growth, survival, recovery, and hope. This is a story for the ones who suffer in silence. This is a story to let others know that they are not alone.
The words I say next, I need you to hear…
I love you. I love you from the bottom of my heart and back up to the top through my ears and out into the world. I am so grateful for each and every one of you that has been a part of this journey with me. From the moment I shared my story of recovery on my blog, to the very real moment I am having with you right now. I am so humbled by the ongoing support and love that has come from so many different directions, countries, and people.
It’s unreal the experiences I’ve had virtually meeting so many of you in these crazy COVID times. But all I know is that, despite the crazy path my life has taken, you are here with me for a reason. And I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
