Upper Marlboro author shares deeply moving nonfiction accounts in new books
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — Author Kathryn S. Carrington announces the nationwide release of her two new books: “Standing on My Knees: A Paraplegic’s Story” and “Suicide: The Explosion Within,” which are set to be released this week.
In “Standing on My Knees,” Carrington shares how she met Andrew Jerome Seaborne on a busy city street in Baltimore, Maryland, when he was 45 years old. On that particular day, the author was out and about, enjoying a much-needed day off from work, not knowing that she would meet someone who would bring inspiration and life lessons. This book teaches that sometimes, it’s in the most unlikely places where God has us meet those who are destined to serve as teachers or students in our lives.
“Suicide” is a nonfiction tale about the experiences of a love in the life of a woman who trusted a fragile but deceiving human heart. He was tall and handsome. He was intelligent, sophisticated, charming, and above all, he seemed to adore her. He was a ladies’ man, and she could not resist him. He seemed everything she had always dreamed of — except hidden beneath a playfully inviting, confident and warm exterior was a sad, lonely, hurt, angry, wounded, dark, sick man who would later take his own life, leaving behind a woman torn, confused, isolated, defeated, betrayed and damaged. Picking up the pieces of her life would be difficult, and trusting her heart again would be something only God could help her do.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the books are available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Carrington is a published author of nine books, previous business owner and communications worker, whose studies include business administration, creative writing and psychology. The mother of one son and one daughter currently resides in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
