You Can Overcome the Scars of Bullying

Wish you were here Badfinger
Joyce Isaacson is an active blogger, author, and worked for the Chicago Tribune Editorial Department for ten years.  Her novel, "Wish You Were Here, Badfinger....A Rock Fantasy" has opened up many opportunities to help people deal with loss of a friend or loved one.

From a very young age, Joyce suffered extreme abuse through bullying by both classmates and teachers.  She dislocated her hip from tripping over a stuffed toy and missed a lot of school.  This led to a pattern of abuse and betrayal that followed her well into her adult years.  

You will enjoy her interview sharing her own story and her quirky novel:

"WISH YOU WERE HERE, Badfinger A Rock Fantasy”  is a quirky novel that crosses the love between brothers with the pop-paranormal.   Badfinger’s Tommy Evans, after years of depression following the death of a beloved band mate, slips into heaven by the skin of his teeth. Guided by an angel, Gabriel, he sets out on a Dante an voyage through the strata of the afterlife to reunite with his lost lead singer, Pete Ham. Along the way, Tommy encounters a repertoire of other famous faces—chafing against, laughing with, and learning from each in the fierce quest for his best friend’s soul.
