My Narcolepsy Memoir is Published and On Sale!

I’m thrilled to release Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy! Three million people worldwide live with narcolepsy, a fascinating yet little known disorder of the sleep/wake/dream cycle.

Purchase Paperback:

Kindle Edition:

Waking up on Saturday morning, an aura of peacefulness surrounded me. I smiled from ear-to-ear. Later, my boyfriend surprised me with flowers and a celebration dinner, which kept me glowing all day. 

While one chapter ends today, another begins!  I hope this book starts many conversations about narcolepsy around the world – in households, classrooms, book clubs, and doctors offices. 

Thank you for your incredible support – for giving me the courage to speak up and pursue my writing dreams.

Happy reading! Please spread the word to friends and family.

    So very excited for you! What a fantastic feeling it must be to have your book published! I am just deciding if I will buy it on kindle to get it immediately (if I can sneak the kindle from the boyfriend!) or wait for paperback to arrive in the mail so I have it in the nice real hard copy format I love so much! Either way I am very excited to receive it and cannot wait to read it 🙂

      Thank you so much, Nicole!! Personally, I love the cover design so I like having the paperback version, but I understand wanting to read it sooner rather than later! 🙂 It is a fantastic feeling to be done and sharing it with the world. I can’t wait to hear what you think! Cheers, Julie
