Well, I did it. I’ve spent the last six months of the pandemic writing that stress book I’ve mentioned since my family’s house fire back in 2017.
This is my first nonfiction book, and I’m THRILLED to share it with you! It’s called …
“When Life Feels like a House Fire: Transforming Your COVID-19 Stress.”
It’s 200 pages that explains how to pinpoint your unique stress patterns. How and why these are affecting you physically, emotionally, behaviorally and psychologically.
Your Stress Patterns Are Everything
Book Description: If you’ve struggled with anxiety, disrupted sleep, foggy brain, loss of time, the inability to focus since the Coronavirus upended the world – it’s not your imagination. Your physical aches and pains are real, too. Maybe you’ve suffered low-grade to full-blown depression. Maybe you’ve turned to bad behaviors to cope, like overeating or no appetite at all, overdrinking, hours of binge-watching TV or scrolling through social media. This doesn’t include possible tensions with family, friends and strangers over masks, politics, protests and much more.
There is a scientific reason and root cause behind your COVID-19 stress, anxieties and behaviors, but it’s not what you think. The answers are connected to the past.
These coping strategies have kept you from living your best life, even before 2020. The book has worksheets, exercises and assignments in the book to help you discover the root cause behind your anxieties.
Marcy McKay shares what she learned after her family experienced a house fire in 2017, and her life unraveled. Sending her on a journey to Humpty Dumpty herself back together again. What she learned changed her forever, making her the perfect guide on how to thrive during a crisis.
Uncover your stress patterns to enjoy more health, happiness and success, even amidst a global pandemic … because life shouldn’t feel like a house fire.
But, Wait! There’s More
I’ll also have a free online course at Teachable.com with downloadable worksheets, and exercises from the book, as well as videos guiding you throughout the process.
2020 = StReSsFuL
Our house fire upended my life in ways I never expected. When I started bread-crumbing for solutions … the answers were so revolutionary that I became a life coach so others wouldn’t have to suffer alone.
COVID-19 is traumatizing people, and most don’t understand what’s happening to them. Since the pandemic hit … folks I know and care about have contracted the disease or have had family members die from it. Others have lost jobs. I know my family has been impacted financially. Friends have divorced. More than one has gone to rehab for alcoholism and/or substance abuse. Parents are struggling with teens with eat disorders, self-harm (cutting), while stress and anxiety disorders have skyrocketed. Suicide rates are higher than ever.
This doesn’t include so many other challenging issues like working from home, home-schooling, kids at school, or a combination of both. For those of us in the United States, we’re enduring a divisive presidential election, and so many other social-justice issues. Facebook feels like a battleground!
We are truly living through epic times. You need to understand your stress patterns to not just survive. I want you to thrive.

Whaaaaaat About Your Fiction?
Believe me, I have not forgotten about Copper Daniels and her rag-tag group of friends. This stress book just would not be ignored.
Look for Copper’s third and final story in 2021. After that, I want to write the trilogy about her other friend, Tommy “Turdmouth” Tucker, then O’Dell the cemetery groundskeeper. Stay tuned!
