In her new autobiography “Seeking Normal” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Jane St. John offers a narrative that recounts the her childhood and how she coped with her family problems, her homosexuality and eventually her own mental illness.

“I wrote this book to offer solace to others in similar situations,” St. John says, “and in moving all the events of my journey onto paper, it helped to heal me with a final peace.”

“Seeking Normal” is a chronological narrative in which the author describes dramatic events over significant years with such bracing detail that readers are sure to feel like they are walking the halls of the psychiatric ward with her on the night she's admitted.

As a child, she keeps secrets like her father's alcoholism, his mental illness, and her own homosexual trappings. As an adult, her suspicions grow concerning her husband's subtle unnatural behavior around young female children, but too naive and scared to know where or whom to turn, she doesn't reveal it.

“Seeking Normal” is a must-read for families who have a family member with mental illness and need to know that through proper treatment and medication, there is hope.
