Liz Petrone is a true believer in the healing power of storytelling. A suicide survivor and a recovering anorexic, she found unprecedented support and community in telling intimate stories that speak to the lessons learned in survival and recovery. She's built that community into a safe space for her readers to gather and speak openly and honestly about their own struggles. Today, she's an author, blogger, speaker, and survivor. She shares her stories on lizpetrone.com, and lives in a creaky old house in Syracuse, New York, with her ever-patient husband, their four children, and an excitable dog named Beau.
