A writer as well as a busy mom, Meredith had two consecutive concussions and managed post-concussive syndrome for four years. She is at work on her debut novel: CONCUSSION MOM. After ten years of being Primary Breadwinner and Household Slave to three kids, Carolyn gives her handsome actor husband Spencer an ultimatum: Help out more, get a real job – or get out. Then multi-tasking Caroline suffers two consecutive brain injuries and is pushed into a dark room, alone, seeing her world through the prism of her injuries. This might be the thing that finally breaks them. Or could it be the thing that leads them back together?
