Local author Martha Carucci talked about her new book, “Sobrietease,” at Sherwood Regional Library on April 26. Carucci, a Mount Vernon resident and working professional, is a recovering alcoholic. The book chronicles her struggles, successful efforts to stop drinking and continuing sobriety. “Sobrietease,” which was the #1 New Release on Amazon for Alcoholism and Recovery, offers her experiences and advice to others with alcohol problems, as well as to their families and friends.
Carucci and her husband, Mike, have three children and live in Waynewood. She spent many years as a lobbyist for the telecommunications industry and is currently the executive director of the National Breast Center Foundation. She studied at the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard and Georgetown.
She has a second book in the works for publication this fall and is starting to think about a novel. Carucci blogs about her recovery at https://sobrietease.wordpress.com/
