Beverly Conyers MA is an editor and freelance writer who lives in New England.
In July 2000, she learned that her twenty-three-year-old daughter was addicted to heroin. Conyers was vigilant and persistant at assisting her daughter in on her journey through recovery by helping to ensure that she attended counseling sessions and Twelve Step meetings. In time, she decided to share the hope and knowledge that she had gained as the parent of an addict to families who struggle with addiction. She published Addict in the Family: Stories of Hope, Loss, and Recovery (Hazelden) in 2003.
Over the years, Conyers began to see the need for a second book--one the focues not on addiction itself, but on its aftermath: Everything Changes: Help for Families of Newly Recovering Addicts.
