Sex, Drugs

& Recovery

A Story of War, Oppression, Addiction & Thoughtful Writing in a Click-Bait World

 

At twenty-seven, Shannon Egan returns home after reporting news in Africa. The memories follow her there. To cope with flashbacks of genocide and war—and the pressure to conform in the cult-like Mormon community she’s returned to—she pops 20 opiates a day.  

Hope comes in the form of a new adventure: a book deal to detail her journey through Africa. But despite a life now in New York City and a job at the United Nations, the internal struggles persist—and she relapses hard. Returning home, Shannon finds herself stripping in a shady night club, arrested for multiple DUIs, and the newest resident of the Salt Lake County Jail.

Now an award-winning grant writer and advocate for the international recovery movement, Shannon shares her story of healing from religious oppression, PTSD, and drug and alcohol addiction; thoughtful writing in a click-bait world; and finding peace and one’s true calling.
