Lila Karoub, a retired psychotherapist, has completed her new book “Marnie’s Journals": an intriguing work that is a true case study of a colleague that loses everything she worked for and tries to end her life.

Karoub writes, "I walk around my home and wonder what is next for me. My life is not private any longer, and the state of California, my dream state, is not what it once was. It will never be a private life again for as long as I live. I had a dream to come out to California and start a new life from a small town in Michigan. I was in my mid-twenties, and when I mention this to a Michigan niece, which I was just a bit older than her when I left Michigan, she can’t believe it. It was what the dreamers did, the baby boomer era. Some of us made it, and others couldn’t manage the dream. I never feared the unknown and always welcomed difficult challenges since childhood. I was born this way. It was a dream, and then I woke up in California, a piece of paradise on earth. My paradise turned into fear, anguish, and a nightmare that no one should ever have to go through or endure this type of experience. I was this person who accomplished my dreams, and now I am this other person that tries to wake up from a recurring nightmare. The latter has become a permanent part of me. Who am I?"

Published by Page Publishing, Lila Karoub’s jarring work details how the death of one of the men in Marnie’s life would change Marnie’s course and stop her dead in her tracks to consider her actions. After this death, her life takes a dangerous turn into a life of crime for two decades.

Marnie’s Journals is a story about multiple men, manipulation, deceit, dishonor, and mayhem. This client was under a major criminal investigation while in mental health treatment for over five years. Ms. Karoub uses the client’s personal journals and real-life events for this story to describe a road to crime, chronic depression, mental disorders, and suicidal thoughts that lead to a near-fatal overdose of opiates. Ms. Karoub devotes all her time and energy into this one case, as it would take this to help the client gain strength to move forward into a life without chaos.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase “Marnie’s Journals" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
