My motto is “Live full happy and healthy life! It is possible!”. This is possible because there is everything you need. And it is really possible, even for the most fallen and most deeply unhappy people. Over the past 15 years, this shows my life and professional experience. Being a successful student at a prestigious chemical university, I fell into alcoholism and drug addiction. Having lost everything – the university, my beloved girl, my health, I was left alone. I stayed One on one with emptiness and disappointment, tuberculosis and hepatitis C. In 2002, I found a way out. The way out of the unhappy life and emptiness. This exit was given to me by Jesus Christ. Since that time, I have devoted myself to live full of happiness and healthy life. It’s possible!

What do you get when a jack-of-all-arts decides to write a book? 338 unconventional pages. In the same fashion that Serena dabbles in many of the fine arts, her book “Fourteen and a Quarter: Coined Fiction” dabbles in many genres. Her book of 14 intense short stories is composed on the premise that it is truer to life to know less about the arc of a human story than to know the whole. Thus, the reader will find themselves re-reading and imaging possible continuations of the stories long after the cover is shut. “Fourteen” is an edgy, yet clean musing on classic virtues such as prudence, chastity, and sobriety, and illustrates the eternal constitution of the human spirit via the paths of unchurched Americans in their lives, and even in their afterlives. Serena has a secular bachelor’s degree in Comparative Religion, which background she drew upon to create her book.

This Christian inspirational picture book is one way I want to share our amazing God with others. The book is filled with rich two page picture spreads using my photography from travels in the United States and Europe. Sections on God, Man, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Eternity, and Today contain related Bible verses placed against these picture backdrops. My commentary introduces each section. Each photo was chosen to emphasize the message of God’s words. The sections reveal some of God’s amazing personality, His love for us, faith demonstrated by Noah and Abraham, the love and sacrifice of God’s only son Jesus, the purpose of the Holy Spirit, what happens in eternity, and uplifting encouragement for today. My proceeds are dedicated to spreading God’s Word to the homeless and displaced around the world. Each book purchased funds the procurement and delivery of a Bible to someone in need.

My first book-Through the Mind’s Eye: A Journey of Self-Discovery is a candid and honest depiction of my thought process while completing an addictions treatment program in a facility in the downtown east side of Vancouver. Upon entering the facility at the age of forty-nine simply because my only other choice would have been that of a pine box, and progressing now to two and a half years clean and sober, this book covers some of my past that relates to the entire recovery process, and in turn my subsequent continued recovery and all of the positives of living a life free from alcohol. Detailing the difficulties I did encounter along the way, the people, the priorities and most of all the happiness I have now found.
How To Become a Successful (recovering) Alcoholic
Sobriety isn’t a destination, it’s an ongoing journey, one with which J.P. Willson is all too familiar. In How to Become a Successful (recovering) Alcoholic, Willson is eager to offer whatever insights he can for those embarking on the same road. This memoir examines how his addiction contributed to and informed some of the choices and behaviours that ultimately led him to Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.
Make no mistake, however; though it contains its fair share of hard truths and regrets, this is not a sob story and does not wallow in what might have been. Instead this is a story of success and redemption through hard work.
His first book, Through the Mind’s Eye: A Journey of Self-Discovery, was about getting sober. This book is about something much harder: staying there.
Written while working as a chef at the Salvation Army Harbour Light Addiction and Recovery Rehabilitation Centre, it is a testament both to what is possible with the right mindset—and what is all too probable without it.
