Anne-Marie Bacon is the blessed daughter of Bev, a woman who bravely shared all of her deep, dark family secrets. Together they weaved the story of The Monkeys In My Dreams. Anne-Marie spent 30 years in the food service industry in various position that included catering and food sales, first as a distributor rep, then a manufacturer rep, and finally a food broker rep. Currently working as a medical receptionist, Anne-Marie’s favourite hobby is cooking. Nothing better on a cold winter day then whipping up a pot of homemade soup! Her retirement goals are to volunteer with Soup Sisters, which was a lot of fun in the past, and to write more! When not putting pen to paper, Anne-Marie loves to travel with her husband Denis and spend time with grown daughters and their families. Anne-Marie calls London, ON, Canada home where she spends hours perfecting the family recipes for her loved ones. Like Jane Austen, Anne-Marie was born the seventh child of eight, a coincidence? We don’t think so!

Book Description: The Monkeys In My Dreams

VIRTUAL RELEASE DATE – November 2019

What began as a simple conversation with Anne-Marie’s mother 39 years ago turned into a lifetime of collected notes, journals, and stories regarding her mother’s life that spanned over 80 years. That discussion started Anne-Marie on her current path, which has been a long and bumpy road. She has endured a few emotional cuts and scrapes, but is happy to share her family history.

Over twenty years ago, Anne-Marie moved two hours away from her home town of Stoney Point. From then on, she had a standing phone call every Sunday morning with her mother, which became their special time – Anne-Marie with her tea and her mother with her coffee. It was her mother’s chance to unload and Anne-Marie’s time to take careful notes, ask many questions, and listen and learn about her legacy and family history.

Anne-Marie’s mother completely trusted her daughter with her inner most feelings by sharing her painful family history. These are the stories you’ll read: accounts of trauma, love, tragedy, infidelity and pain. But most of all, you’ll read how kindness and forgiveness always prevail.

Her mother had every reason to be bitter, angry, and mean, but she chose kindness, love, and generosity to be her life’s mission. She was determined that her children and her family would never suffer abuse at her hands or on her watch. Extraordinarily, her mother forgave all those that hurt her and Anne-Marie wants you to be able to forgive those that hurt you by the time you’ve finished reading this book. She wants you to find your voice in this scrambled world that we live in.

Anne-Marie’s mother was adamant that this book would be published. On her deathbed, she maintained the importance of this. She didn’t want any little girls or boys to grow up the way she did.  She wanted people to learn from her history; she wanted to give her pain meaning. There had to be a reason that she went through all that!

It’s not always pretty delving into the past. It can be painful for some, eliciting some raw feelings for others. She felt it was our responsibility to use these dreadful experiences to bring about change. If we sweep everything under the rug, eventually someone is going to trip on that bumpy rug!

 “With this book, “The Monkeys In My Dreams,” I don’t want to be just an historian; I want to be the change maker in you! I want you, the reader, to read my book and take your life back. Forgive the people who have hurt you. You will see how it sets you free – changes will happen. When I chose to forgive those who hurt me, things starting happening for me. I am happier, I can focus better, I was able to write again, and you can do this too. I no longer let it consume me.

 I want the readers to be brave, be bold, go out and conquer the world! Stop talking about your betrayals and set the hurt and the pain free. You deserve peace. Forgive those that need forgiving. Mom would be so proud of you if you did. I trust you will find my stories as interesting as I have. I’d like you to walk in my shoes for a spell and I hope you’ll enjoy the ride.” – Anne-Marie Bacon

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL:

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.
