About the Book

Sandi Latimer’s life changed forever the day she returned home after her volunteer to find her husband dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. In The Bills Keeps Coming, the Grass Keeps Growing, she shares her story, telling how several times she turned to her journalist talents to find answers. Having no immediate family to rely on, she deals by herself. She also discovered she was not alone in her daily thoughts of her loved one and why he did what he did. Thanks to a local mental health agency, she was put in touch with a chapter of Survivors of Suicide Bereavement Support Group. Although Latimer writes for a living, she turned to a different form of writing to share her experiences. In The Bills Keep Coming, the Grass Keeps Growing, she narrates how she’s had a rough time adjusting, but that she’s learned to get through it one day at a time. Praise for The Bills Keep Coming, the Grass Keeps Growing— “Sandi Latimer has written a compelling, candid, brave account of coping with the tragic death of her husband.” —Bill Rabinowitz, Columbus Dispatch sports writer and author of Buckeye Rebirth and The Chase “Latimer opens the curtain on a topic few people may want to talk about but everyone should pay attention to.” —Andrew Welsh-Huggins, author of the Andy Hayes mystery series.
