Laurie Bellesheim, a published poet,
was inspired to write Surviving Emily because
she lost a close friend to Sudden
Unexplained Death in Epilepsy when she
was 18. Before writing Surviving Emily,
her first novel, Bellesheim was a social
worker for six years, including working
with the Department of Children and
Families. She graduated from Southern
Connecticut State University with a
bachelor’s degree in social work. She
lives in Connecticut with her
husband and three children.
Surviving Emily is a compelling story that explores the meaning of everlasting friendship and the healing power of love.
