Geraldine M. Cool is a woman who has been a victim of depression most of her life. She has endured shame and suffered humiliation. It wasn't until later in life that she decided to write of her experiences. Writing has helped her immensely in dealing with the depression that plagued her. Now she is a much happier person. Her only possession before was isolation and fear, but she is still here after years of the world trying to break her. She promised herself that one day she would make something of herself. Geraldine was born and raised in Michigan but now resides in Texas with her husband, Clarence. Her faith in God was and always will be important to her. Without this faith she would be nothing but a shell or worse yet--dead. In her spare time she enjoys a variety of hobbies consisting of knitting, crocheting, woodworking and writing.
