Our Book Trailer

As we’ve mentioned in the past, Giulia and I have a story to share about mental illness and recovery. In fact, one of the major reasons that we traveled around the world together was because we still had some healing to do.

I’ve written a book about what her illness meant to us. How it swept into our lives, completely unexpected; how it transformed who we were; how it scared us, but also reminded us of how important it is to love. We recently finished a book trailer for the memoir, which was made by the extremely talented Aaron Fagerstrom. We hope you enjoy the trailer.

In case you’re new to this blog, you can read some of our older posts that address Giulia’s illness. I think the best two to get you started are The Truth Will Set You Free, and A Walk To The Lighthouse. They’re especially great because one of them is from my perspective, and one of them is from Giulia’s perspective.

Oh and by the way, we are in the process of trying to get our book published. So if you know of anyone in the industry, let us know! (You can find our email addresses in the Contact Us page). We really believe that it’s important to share stories about mental illness, especially one like ours that highlights the experience of a care-giving family member, to keep chipping away at the unfair stigma surrounding mental health.

  7. Mark & Giulia,
    I’ve never had the privilege of meeting either of you. I’ve followed your journey for some time – initially following Mark through twitter as a fellow surfer. Thank you for the courage and honesty of sharing your story. Count me in for a copy of the book WHEN it gets published – I can’t wait to read it.
    All the best,
