Everyone has suffered some form of grief or loss.

We all know someone that is NOW battling depression, divorce, domestic violence, stillbirth, miscarriage, death of a parent..

How many people have experienced these events compounded on top of each other? The author experienced each of these events and is an example of amazing inspiration.

International Motivational Speaker and Aussie, Maree Hamilton, has and uses her life story to help others face and overcome adversity in the June 2012 release “Life Sucks but YOU CAN turn it around”.

The book, a collection of inspiring stories written to help people facing life's challenges, is a veritable smorgasbord of a resource manual filled with practical advice, tips, organizations and wisdom to help people overcome adversity. The stories are written to help people facing such traumatic life changing events as depression, cancer, alcoholism, IVF , grief, loss, miscarriage, stillbirth, and suicide and more..

Maree has undergone a large variety of traumatic events in her life – she suffered the devastation of not just one, but seven miscarriages in a row, a stillborn child, a stalker, a harrowing near death escape, watching her father suffer from the mental illness bipolar disorder and then dealing with his subsequent death 3 short years ago. She and trauma in life are more than formally acquainted. She knows first hand that people are not good at seeking out help when faced with these events. She wrote the book to help others realise many people have gone through exactly what they are going through now and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

“I know what it is like not to be able to talk to someone who has been through what you have,” says the passionate author. “Organisations are very bureaucratic and do not provide the required support for many different situations. If I had had this book, my life would have been so much easier. I honestly feel it is my legacy to help others from my own experiences. If I can help save lives or enrich them then my job is done,” she says.

Maree sold her accounting practice in 2011 to write the book and to follow her passion of helping others that really need a positive role model to help them move from a dark place into the light.
