Local author shares story to inspire readers
Houston County Courier
At only eight years old, local author Janie Burkett of Crockett was introduced to a lifelong enemy named insecurity that would constantly stand between her and true happiness. By 15, she found herself slipping into a lifestyle that promised only despair, turning her back on God and relying on alcohol and men to fill a growing void. In her new memoir, "Unshackled: A Road to Freedom," Burkett shares how she continued on in a life of darkness, but had no idea how far she had slipped until finally her deeds caught up with her on Dec.18, 2008, when she stood before a judge and received news that would alter her life forever. Burkett shares how she found freedom in "Unshackled," hoping readers will be inspired through her experience and insight. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www. tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble. com or amazon. com.
