Deborah Livingston, Author of “Strand of Pearls,” Featured in Author Solutions Real Authors Real Impact Campaign

Share Article

Livingston offers an inspiring message based on her experience of overcoming abuse and tragedy to discover a spiritual awakening.

Author Solutions, LLC, a Penguin Random House company and the world leader in supported self-publishing services, is highlighting Deborah Livingston, author of the Balboa Press title “Strand of Pearls” in its Real Authors Real Impact campaign.

In her memoir, Livingston shares her struggles through childhood abuse at the hands of her father that led to adult addiction, abuse from others, and an incident that resulted in the death of a close friend. In the throes of unbearable tragedy, Livingston didn’t recognize these painful experiences as “pearls” that would eventually lead to a spiritual transformation and a fulfilling life.

“In ‘Strand of Pearls,” I invite the reader into the most painful, raw moments of my past, so that the light of the present might shine brighter–as an invitation to others’ hope, faith and gratitude in their lives,” Livingston commented.

The book draws its title not only from the “pearls” that shaped Livingston’s tranquil life but from a specific incident during which she suffered a severe beating as a consequence of breaking a strand of family pearls.

Livingston heals others as a practicing International Intuitive Medium and Spiritual Mentor. Her message to others is to believe in life’s gifts, whatever form they take.
