Life Detonated is the inspirational story of triumph about a young woman raised on the mean streets of the Bronx who was saved by the love of a heroic NYPD bomb-squad police officer whose line of duty death causes her life to implode. It is a true story that reads like the very best fiction.

Life Detonated is a real NY love story about a NYPD hero from Brooklyn who meets a girl from the Bronx,  sweeps her off her feet, and starts a family. Tragically he is killed in the line of duty by a terrorist bombing. But, instead of ending there we see his widow courageously become the ultimate survivor and learn how to take care of herself, her family, and other widows.

Kirkus Review

The author delicately yet unreservedly explores a widow's experience: the necessary yet nearly impossible task of reconciling a senseless death to a terrorist organization, the unanswered questions and insecurity, and the crushing reality of suddenly becoming a single parent to small children. A raw, somber emotional journey that concludes with hope and a measure of forgiveness.

Midwest Book Review

An impressively candid, extraordinarily detailed, ultimately inspiring read from cover to cover, "Life Detonated" is a consistently compelling and exceptionally personal story that is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Contemporary American Biography collections.
