The Grim Reaper Girl I’m a writer, speaker and Mom of 4. In 2009, a devastating slew of losses hit our lives. Over 5 years we lost 21 people, our home, my job, a baby, and our daughter’s 5 year old best friend. Then, we faced the beast of Addiction, and our family became a miracle. This is my story, my life, my love – writing my way through and out of the darkness, with you to witness the beauty.
