Local writer, storyteller, producer and mental health advocate Erin Mahone has written her first book, If You Could See Me: Life, Motherhood, and the Pursuit of Sanity.

       Several years ago, Mahone began writing the stories of her family, work, life with anxiety disorder and parenting adventures. Those stories became a one-woman show and then morphed into this book filled with hilarious and poignant accounts of a woman showing up everyday, learning the lessons life has to teach and embracing the beauty of imperfection.

       She states, “Mental illness impacts millions of Americans and their families. Historically, the stigma related to these diagnoses has kept people isolated and ashamed. Now is the time to speak up, come out of the darkness and love out loud.”
