Grief Diaries Releases 17th Book and Exposes the Ways Impaired Drivers Avoid Full Conviction
25 Men and Women Reveal the Shocking Aftermath of Drunk Driving Crashes in "Grief Diaries: Shattered"
Authored by Cheldelin Fell along with Bill and Julie Downs, founders of AVIDD - Advocates for Victims of Impaired/Distracted Driving, the book features 25 powerful stories that expose the true aftermath of a crime that claims the lives of innocent people and catapults the devastated families into long legal journeys that rarely yield sufficient justice. Desiring to raise awareness about the dangers of impaired driving, each writer shares the days leading up to — and the haunting life beyond — the tragic moment their lives were shattered by an impaired driver's choice to get behind the wheel.
"According to the CDC, an average of 28 people in the United States die every day in a crash involving an alcohol-impaired driver. This amounts to one death every 53 minutes that was fully preventable,"
Since Cheldelin Fell published the first 8 books last December through AlyBlue Media, her own publishing company named after her late daughter, the Grief Diaries series has grown to nearly 500 writers in 11 countries in just 10 months.
The series tackle a wide spectrum of relevant topics including alcoholism, eating disorders, mental illness, endometriosis, rape, divorce, homelessness, bullying and more. The series has earned acclaim from some of the world's most notable experts, influencers and organizations, including Dr. Bernice A King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Candace Lightner, founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
