Recovery Blogger Kelly Fitzgerald Junco Sells Memoir About Her Adventures as The ‘Sober Senorita’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Passageway Press, a boutique publisher based in the U.K., has acquired recovery blogger Kelly Fitzgerald Junco's memoir, which recounts her journey from party chica to sober senorita - moving from suburban Pennsylvania to the tourist city of Cancun, Mexico and then succumbing to alcohol and cocaine addiction.

What started as an innocent adventure abroad quickly turned into a hopeless and desperate attempt of a 20-something girl to normalize the destructive behavioral patterns that turned into the cycle of her life.

After finding sobriety, Kelly launched "The Adventures of a Sober Senorita" blog, where she wrote a post about reaching a year of sobriety. The story went viral via the Huffington Post and was translated into five languages.

Junco wrote the proposal for "From Party Chica to Sober Senorita: Getting Sober in Mexic" after completing the All the Write Moves coaching program.

"It feels completely overwhelming and simultaneously amazing, to put my life stories into a book," Junco says. "When I still drank, I used to joke around and say one day I will write a book about my crazy life, and it's absolutely surreal that's what's actually happening."

International Recovery Coach Dr. Lauren Casey Sells Memoir About Her Journey from a Life of Champagne, Cocaine and Millionaires to Falling in Love with a Prisoner

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- International recovery coach Lauren Casey, PhD, has sold her memoir, "Breaking the Chains: Drugs, Millionaires and the Prisoner Who Set Me Free," to addiction recovery imprint Zephyr Bookshelf. Zephyr will be releasing the book in spring of 2019.

Dr. Casey's memoir is a shattering reflection of a life punctuated by drugs, jetting around the globe with millionaires, champagne, detox, rehab and an unlikely connection that ultimately saved her.

A deceptively complex story, Casey's book manages to be tragic, honest and inspiring, revealing as much about Casey as it does about the genuine hope that exists for everyone.

"I am deeply honored and humbled to be able to share my story," says Dr. Casey, adding, "I learned a long time ago that it's really not about me-it's about instilling hope for others."

Zephyr acquired the memoir via All the Write Moves, New York Times bestselling author Anna David's coaching program for writers, which walks 10 students at a time through the process of writing and selling their book proposals. Last month, Fuhr acquired a book from the previous group of students-Taming the Wild Things in My Head by David Griggs (to be released in late 2018).
