Press Release Hat Tricks from Heaven

Woburn Author Publishes Poignant Book
Aimed at Helping Families Dealing with Drug Addiction
A Mother’s Story of Joy, Devastation, Loss and Inspiration

WOBURN, MA — Most acknowledge the growing drug epidemic in the United States but never expect it to affect their lives, author Kate Genovese was one of these people until the day she realized her son was an addict. This was one of the worst days of her life, but not nearly as bad as the day he died from a drug overdose. Kate, never one to sit idly by, decided to work through her grief by writing a book to help others dealing with drug addiction.

The resulting book, Hat Tricks from Heaven, is a poignant look at the promising life of Christopher
John “Geno” Genovese. She shows how drug addiction invaded his life and affected their family and
everyone who knew Geno. Genovese pulls no punches as she describes what her family went through in their devastating battle against heroin’s hold on their son.

    “I believe the reason for this book is to open parents’ eyes so they can recognize the signs and
symptoms of drug abuse,” Genovese says. “If you’re concerned, take immediate action and be persistent.

Remember, addiction doesn’t stick to a certain zip code; it afflicts the wealthy just as often as the poor. Be aware and educated, and don’t hide in denial.”

Kate Genovese has been a registered nurse for over 30 years, is involved in alternative medicine, runs her own Reiki practice and is a member of the Holistic Nurses Association and Mass Organization of Addiction Recovery (MOAR).
