He Came in With It - A Portrait of Motherhood and Madness
Mental Health Advocacy: One in five adult Americans live with mental illness, and the number grows exponentially when family and loved ones are factored in. There is an enormous global movement right now to eliminate stigma by telling our stories about mental illness, with the MeToo movement paving the way for transparency regarding taboo social issues. Furthermore, Miriam is an outspoken mental health activist, and the book is already supported by organizations such as The National Alliance on Mental Illness, BringChange2Mind, Mothers of the Mentally Ill, and others.
Celebrity Involvement: Miriam extensive clientele as an artist has given her the opportunity to develop relationships with celebrities across the entertainment industry. She has already secured support for the book and endorsements from Ron Powers, Samuel L. Jackson, Janet Fitch, Elyn Saks, Garth Stein, Mavis and Jay Leno, to name a few.
The Power of Family and Motherhood: Miriam’s grit and determination show a powerful side of motherhood. Although the book speaks especially to maternal figures, any reader will sympathize with Miriam she fights to save her son from the clutches of schizophrenia and keep her family from falling apart.
