Saving Ellen: A Memoir

Read the opening chapter from my memoir, Saving Ellen, (Skyhorse Publishing, Spring 2025). It tells the story of my large Irish family in Buffalo, N.Y. where our alcoholic father, wise-cracking, Army veteran mother and six kids are thrown into turmoil when our sister Ellen contracts kidney disease.

Pulitzer Prize winner and author Connie Schultz says, "This is a book for anyone who refused to give up on someone, including themselves. Especially themselves."
