Featuring Our Latest Authors and Their Books


Now that I’m about to pull into the station on the final leg of this long journey of writing my first book, Chemotherapy and Tequila: The Last Road Trip, let me explain the nature of this amazing trip. It’s been eye-opening and educational at times by allowing me to learn about the complexities and hard work that goes into publishing and editing, such as the construction of my manuscript, checking for inconsistencies, grammar, punctuation, repetition, sentence structure, etc. What an awesome job done, considering English and French is my dual communication style. I was really impressed with the full report from the editor, offering suggestions and advice. It helped me to feel like my authentic voice was not lost.

I now feel confident that my book is going to be inspiring, life-shifting and even healing because of the professional services I received. Thank you, Anita, for showing me my full potential and what I was capable of as a writer. The experience has been life-changing, not just with my writing skills but also in my presentation. Your mentorship was really appreciated by me to work through my own personal and emotional limitations. My sister would be so happy to see what this small-town girl has accomplished! Thanks again LWL Publishing House for everything you have done for me!

Book Description: Chemotherapy And Tequila – The Last Road Trip


Have you or someone you love ever been diagnosed with a terminal illness? This book explores two very different perspectives from the viewpoint of two sisters: Josée Roy, who passed away from cancer on December 20, 2012, and her sister, Stephanie Roy, the author who was with her until the end. It is written around the actual journal of Josée on her last road trip taken with her two young children to say her final goodbyes to family and friends. This story is set across the beautiful, forgotten, and sometimes wild Canadian vistas of Northern Ontario, within the various locations of Terrace Bay, Longlac, Thunder Bay, and Sudbury where the sisters were born and raised. It shows the power of emotion, courage, and strength through the love and support of family, friends, and community.

Keep in mind, this is not your typical sad memoir with tears and regrets, but instead reveals the bond between two sisters through the story of their lives before a diagnosis changed their whole world, and how they were transformed into the strong women they became. It also reveals the pain and reality of living with cancer from Josée’s own words with its portrayal of not just the sorrow, but also the awkward, angry, and even the light-hearted moments of all those involved. This is a heartwarming yet entertaining story that will lift your spirits at a time when we all need it, no matter where you’re from. It demonstrates how life is not about the destination, but the journey – life’s final road trip.



I contacted traditional publishers and looked into the pros and cons of self-publishing and honestly wasn’t overly comfortable with either of these options. I felt like a little fish in a big sea where danger lurked. Then, thanks to social media, a friend posted her picture which very proudly displayed a copy of her newly released book! I was so happy for her and congratulations were in order! She spoke of her relationship with LWL PUBLISHING HOUSE and a woman named Anita Sechesky, who she highly praised. “Please introduce me,” I asked!

From our very first phone conversation, I felt Anita was an honest, hard-working individual who was willing to assist me, an average grandma, to create “my masterpiece.” She did not require previous publication or writing experience. She was willing to review my material and help me accomplish my goal. She divulged to me that she had not yet published children’s books, but it was certainly a priority in the near future.

So there I was, wanting to publish children’s books and on the other end of the phone, a publisher wishing to expand to incorporate children’s publications! It always amazes me how life sometimes falls into place, at the right time and for the right reasons. When this happens, I trust it is simply “meant to be” and I just run with it. Within a few months, LWL KIDz was born and I’m honored to be their first children’s author!

Anita is caring, compassionate, and has a genuine love of people. Her smile brightens a room and her “Joie de vie” is infectious! Thank you, Anita, for accepting me as one of your authors! Your encouraging words aid in making us the best we can possibly be, not only as authors, but more importantly, as people.
