Walking On Eggshells
by James Marrelli
The real life story of a man seeking his identity and his redemption.
Interesting people are doing super interesting things: Author Jim Marrelli with his wife, Amy, and daughter Anna.
BRUNSWICK, Ohio - We have some local residents doing some amazing things.
Let's start with Jim Marrelli, who is a Brunswick Hills firefighter/paramedic and works at the ER at the Brunswick campus of Southwest Hospital. He has had a book published by Mirador Publishing, and it is achieving wide critical acclaim for its uncompromising look at the damage parents can do to their children.
"I hope this book will give inspiration to the thousands of individuals who have suffered abuse and violence at the hands of their parents," said Marrelli at the launch of his book, "Walking On Eggshells.'"
"We were humbled by Jim's courage in putting this book forward," said Sarah Luddington, Mirador's Commissioning Editor. "His bravery in speaking out will be an inspiration to thousands of others and we are privileged to be able to help promote awareness of this dreadful abuse of our children."
Reviewers say his revealing, and at times heartbreaking, memoirs detail the long time psychological damage inflicted by years of mental and physical abuse -- damage that followed him through into early adulthood and beyond. The book chronicles his struggles to fight back and undo the damage caused, even to the point of joining The National Guard to gain self confidence and respect. After he fell in love and married his wife, Amy, Jim finally left the trauma behind and carved a successful career including winning the Firefighter of the Year Award.
