Book Festival Archive Post.
Sally Wesner is from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, where she and her husband raised three children. While they were growing up, she stayed at home as much as possible. Later she was chairman of the Oshkosh Christian Woman's Club and also worked in her younger son's doctor's office. After retiring, she was inspired to write her first book, Jeff's Story: Prescriptions for Life or Death? This is the story of her older son, Jeff, and the tragic way his life was shaped by an addiction to prescription medication.
Not knowing the first thing about writing a book, Wesner says it is a miracle the book came into being. In the darkest hours of struggles and loss, Wesner saw that writing about Jeff's experiences could offer others understanding and hope. Her desire is that Jeff's Story will educate people and help others in similar situations to cope.
