My Name is Amelia, and I'm a Sociopath

For nearly a decade, a novelist wrote gripping, scandalous, and often disturbing fiction using her life as a canvas and herself as the protagonist in a massive web of lives. 

In this revealing memoir by author Amy D. Brooks, the complex untruths told by the young woman to disguise a tragic mental state declining into drug addiction and alcoholism are deconstructed in shocking honesty. The confessions of a pathological liar who married a stranger, held jobs qualified for with phantom degrees, and found her way into national news and courtrooms alike as the result of her fictional personae are transcribed in this tale of the author's eccentric journey to sobriety, truth, and spiritual salvation.
