From a former writer on the hit television show, The O.C., comes LOVE SICK (Write Out Publishing, February 9, 2016, $24.95, hardcover, $12.99 ebook), a smart and witty account of dating while navigating a life of uncertain health. This powerful memoir speaks to a new generation, sparking the conversation: when one's dealing with illness and they're still single, what do they do? Face it alone, or look for love?

At 28, Cory Martin thought she had it all; a budding career as a writer in Hollywood, an apartment of her own, and a healthy obsession with yoga. But when she found herself on the floor of her apartment wailing into the phone, 'But I don’t want to be sick,' her entire world came crashing down.

A doctor had just revealed that she had multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating disease. Her good friend was getting married that weekend and the only people she wanted to call were her parents. In a time when she was supposed to be coming into her own as an adult, all she could think was who's going to want to marry me now?

As she embarked on a medical quest, subjecting herself to countless MRIs and a painful spinal tap that landed her in the ER, Cory simultaneously threw herself head- first into dating. But no matter how many doctors she saw or men she met, there would never be a cure for MS or a surefire way to find "the one."

Written from a place of strength and vulnerability, LOVE SICK is an unforgettable tale of heartache, perseverance and love. True to life and relatable, it is a story of facing one’s fears head-on with humor and grace. There is no magical ending and no grand epiphany. Instead, it is Cory Martin’s desire to be loved and feel normal that makes her journey so poignant.

“I’m fully committed to doing my part to #kissgoodbyetoms,” Cory Martin says. “And I hope I can do that through my writing and my memoir Love Sick.”
