Sometimes I See You (release scheduled for November 2012)

"It remains a cruel and painful irony that Kirstenís journey began and ended on Thanksgiving holidays, twenty-five years apart. During her brief sojourn, her life was a kaleidoscope of compassion, frenzy, love and pain. She was a tenacious fighter and a recurrent victim; a thoughtful, fun-loving daughter and sister, and a monstrous, hurtful hellion.

"During her life, Kirsten was diagnosed with a galaxy of maladies that more-than-often surpassed the competence of the medical community to heal. Over the years she was treated with little or no success for Clinical Depression, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Bulimia Nervosa, Repetitive Self-Mutilation Syndrome, Borderline Personality Disorder, Multiple Personality Disorder, Brittle Bone Disease, Repressed Memory Syndrome and, finally - fatally - Astrocytoma.

"Her enigmatic roller-coaster life kept us all frightened, relieved, confused, joyful, angry, helpless and heartsick.

"This is the story of what happened to Kirsten, to Luisa, to our other children, Kaela, Sam, Eban, and Tom, and to me, between these two remarkable Thanksgivings."
