...when we talk to God, we’re said to be praying; but when God talks to us, we’re schizophrenic... (Lily Tomlin)


Background Information

Author Lynn C. Tolson in my own words: For nearly twenty years, I engaged in careers in retail, real estate and property management. Every working day left me feeling unfulfilled, as if I was living a false life. My real life began not by changing jobs, but by putting pen to paper in journal writing sessions. Themes emerged regarding the impact of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence, including their ramifications: drug addiction and suicide attempts. In therapy, I learned that I had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). By using the journal to write about the problems and solutions discussed in my counseling sessions, a story of transformation evolved. Ultimately, I was able to achieve a life that reflects health and happiness. My desire to share a message of healing from trauma became too strong to ignore. Writing the book became a mission.

I left the corporate environment to write my story about personal yet universal emotional issues. Although journal writing was a cathartic experience, the book was written with the courage to face my fears, with compassion for myself and others, and a conviction to tell the truth. Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story is the result of years of personal and spiritual growth. My memoir illustrates physical, emotional, and spiritual transformation; my story offers a message of hope.

I returned to college to obtain a degree in social work. I live in the Rocky Mountains with my husband and two West Highland White Terriers. I am writing a memoir about my breast cancer experience.
