Check Mates: A Collection of Fiction, Poetry and Artwork about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, by People with Ocd (Paperback)
Check Mates is an original collection of fiction and poetry written about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder by the people who know best - Obsessive-Compulsives. Split between 'realism' and stories of the 'beyond', there is a diverse range of styles and genres, and a mix of rage, frustration, tears, violence, pain, heartache, subversion, love, strength, metaphysics, philosophy, friendship, hope, and even a bit of humour. And maybe - just maybe - it will knock away a few stereotypes. NOTE: Part of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to OCD charities. Featuring writing by: 'Kristen', Rose Gardener, 'Heather', 'Kristyn', Steven Mojsovski, Vrinda Pendred, 'Sad Clown', Laura Power, Laura Chi, Jennifer Abrams, Sharon Meyer, 'Ash', Mark W. Johnson, Beth Barker, E. I. Muse, 'Rich Writer' and Ryan Arroyo Illustrations by Stephen Leaver and Richard Krecker.
