My Dad Is an Alcoholic, What about Me?: A Pre-Teen Guide to Conquering  Addictive Genes by Marc & Lianna Treitler

  • Paperback 146 pages ; $9.99
  • Publisher: Red Rosebud Foundation (July 20, 2016)  Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0997426306 | ISBN-13: 978-0997426304
  • Synopsis per Amazon:

 

Marc grew up in a family of addicts. Eventually he, too, became an alcoholic. His kids struggled to understand why their dad drank so much and why he was so angry when he did. It was only when he recognized how his addiction was affecting his family that Marc finally took the steps necessary to recover.

In this book Marc and his daughter Lianna tell you everything they wish someone had told them about addiction. Together, they share their family’s journey of recovery.

Science says that just like some people are allergic to peanuts, others are allergic to alcohol and drugs. If one of your parents has an addiction allergy, you might have that same allergy hiding in your genes.

The good news is that you have a choice. Marc and Lianna teach you how to stop your allergy from ever “turning on.”

If you’re wondering what’s happening in your family, and what you should do, My Dad is an Alcoholic will help you find your way.

marc-treitlerMeet the Treitlers per Amazon:

In a lot of ways that count, the Treitlers are like many other families. A mom and dad and two kids, all of whom love each other, support each other, and enjoy spending time together. But in a very important way, they are also different.

Marc, the Trietler dad, is an alcoholic. And he comes from a family with alcoholics. So both genetically and environmentally, Marc was predisposed to become an alcoholic. And he did.

Their story is a happy one. Marc realized what his drinking could do to his family, and he voluntarily entered rehab and has been sober now for years.

Now together Marc, his wife Rowena, his daughter, Lianna, and his son, Bennet, have written My Dad is An Alcoholic, What About Me? to help young people avoid alcoholism.

Dorothea Jensen, born in Boston, MA, grew up in Chillicothe, IL, the same little town where Zorro’s creator was raised. She earned a BA in English at Carleton College, taught high school English, served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil, and received an MA in Education at the University of New Mexico. In 1989, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich published Dorothea’s award-winning novel for young readers about the American Revolution, THE RIDDLE OF PENNCROFT FARM. Her new novel, A BUSS FROM LAFAYETTE, set in 1825 in her New Hampshire town, was released by BQB Publishing on April 22, 2016. (Dorothea has also written a guide for using this book in the classroom.) Besides historical fiction, Dorothea has written a series of award-winning illustrated modern Christmas stories in verse. These feature Santa’s Izzy Elves (Tizzy, Blizzy, Dizzy, Frizzy, Quizzy, Fizzy, Bizzy and Whizzy) who are all extremely savvy in 21st century technology. In addition to being a writer, Dorothea is an experienced actress/singer who played many Gilbert and Sullivan battle axe contralto and ingénue mezzo roles. She also performed in a baroque opera company. (She usually lost the hero to the soprano.)

Michael Bright’s Bio per his Website:

michael-bright

In January 1971 Michael was appointed producer with the BBC Science Unit, Radio, at Broadcasting House in Central London. Working initially with journalist and presenter Paul Vaughan on the live weekly science magazine New Worlds, he went on to establish new science radio programmes, talks, discussions and series, such as Science Now (R4) with Peter Evans, Scientifically Speaking (R3) with Sir John Maddox, Medicine Now (R4) with Geoff Watts, and Where are you taking us? (R4) with Brian J. Ford. His radio documentary Heart Attack, presented by Brian, was nominated as the BBC’s entry for the Prix Italia, and the nature-versus-nurture debate XX+XY=IQ (R4)attracted widespread critical acclaim.
Leaving science for a short while, Michael was one of the team that set up and established the live nightly arts programme Kaleidoscope (R4), and for one season he produced the long-running in-depth current affairs series Analysis (R4). While at Broadcasting House, he pioneered programmes recorded in binaural stereo and surround sound, and he represented the BBC as a fellow of the Salzburg Seminar for American Studies.
Joining BBC-TV’s Science and Feature Department at Television Centre in West London, Michael worked for a season on Tomorrow’s World and Horizon, before heading to Bristol and a return to radio, where he became Editor, Natural History Unit (NHU), Radio, overseeing the long-running and much-loved Living Worlds and Wildlife with Derek Jones, and establishing The Natural History Programme, with Fergus Keeling and Lionel Kelleway, as a new Radio Four strand. Michael also pioneered natural history radio features, such as To Fly Where the Sun Never Sets and The Doomsday Oak, working with actors Carol Drinkwater, Andrew Sachs, and Jack Watson, and produced a major 26-part radio documentary series Animal Language, presented by Sir David Attenborough. His radio documentary – Men, Nations and Whales: will the bloody story ever end, written by David Helton, was awarded a prestigious Prix Italia.
Moving to wildlife television, Michael was co-series producer on the BBC-2 conservation strand Nature, presented by Tony Soper, and produced or executive produced episodes of Wildlife on One and Natural World, working with narrators such as John Nettles, Andrew Sachs, John Simm and John Shrapnel, before setting up and leading the NHU’s commercial arm Wildvision alongside BBC Worldwide in London and BBC Worldwide Americas in New York, with productions, such as Killing for a Living narrated by Anthony Hopkins and Eyewitness with Martin Sheen. He was later appointed Director of Development at the NHU, before returning to production as series producer of the international award-winning Wild Battlefields series, with Sanjeev Bhaskar, and series producer of the British Isles: A Natural History with Alan Titchmarsh. After retiring from the BBC, he returned to work for a short while at the NHU with Alan on The Nature of Britain, and with Mike deGruy on Perfect Shark, a complex virtual studio-based production, designed by Peter Bailey, for BBC-1 and Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.
Alongside the radio and film work, Michael has written extensively articles for the likes of BBC Wildlife, BBC Focus, New Scientist, World Medicine and Nikon Owners Magazine, and has had published over 100 books, for BBC Books, Reader’s Digest, Dorling Kindersley, National Geographic, Raintree, Quarto, Franklin Watts, Anness, Natural History Museum, Smithsonian, Bantam Press, Robson Books, JR Books and the Robson Press, including several TV-tie-ins, such as Wild Caribbean (BBC) and Andes to Amazon (BBC), and Africa: Eye to Eye with the Unknown (Quercus). He has ‘ghosted’ several books, and under his own name written two fictional stories based on fact: The Pride and Whale Odyssey (JR books).
Michael was born in the naval port of Plymouth in the English county of Devon, and after a spell in London, now lives in Bristol. He is a graduate of the University of London, a Chartered biologist and Member of the Society of Biology.
