Nov 14, 2018


We’ve become more familiar with stories and reports about how widespread the opioid crisis has become, but what about the loved ones of those caught in addiction -- their family and friends? In her first book, Central Valley author Tina Hogan Grant writes about this from her own perspective. Her book is called, "Reckless Beginnings" and it’s based in part on her own life experience watching her sister suffer from a substance use disorder.

Listen to the interview above to hear Hogan Grant talk about why she wrote the book, and some of her challenges translating her experiences into a work of fiction.
