Author Biography

"Me? An alcoholic? Impossible!" I was a professional with three advanced degrees. Yet here I was on April 28, 2000 sitting in a room with fifty of those alcoholics and admitting for the first time that I was one of them. For years prior to that I had periodically tried to stop drinking without success. Something transformational occurred on that April morning. The obsession to drink was lifted and I haven't had a drink or a drug from that day onward.Since that time, Alcoholics Anonymous has provided me with a blueprint for life. Meetings have given me an opportunity for deep self-reflection. The Twelve Steps of AA has helped me to work on my character defects and admit when I'm wrong and make amends. I utilize prayer and meditation daily to connect to the God of my understanding. Fellowship means that help for any problem is only a phone call away. I truly am a grateful recovering alcoholic.

Insights from the Rooms: Inspiring Daily Thoughts of Recovery by Moshe K. is a compendium of thoughts and reflections designed to help readers start their day well and give it perspective. The book offers a single thought for every day of the year, a thought that is modeled after or inspired by a quote, an idea, or an insight. For instance, “Addiction Is like an Elevator: You Can Get Off at Any Floor” is one of the thoughts presented in this book. What makes it an enjoyable read is that these thoughts are insightful and imbued with the power to help readers shift perspective and adopt a fresh outlook on life. Each thought ends with an invitation to the reader to reconsider the quality of their life, a thought to ponder on, and something to bring along for the day.

Moshe K. writes with surprising simplicity and possesses the gift of translating complex thoughts through a simple, eloquent style of writing. The book features short stories that are filled with wisdom, parables, and thoughts. The author also makes striking observations about life in general. For instance: “On a daily basis, life presents us with challenges. Some people have the attitude that I’ll just do enough to get by. On a certain level, this may work for them. What often happens, though, is that, as time goes by, they find themselves doing less and less. And finally, the day comes where they do so little that, in effect, nothing gets done.” Thoughts like this one are manifold in this work and many readers will resonate with the voice of the author. Insights from the Rooms: Inspiring Daily Thoughts of Recovery challenges readers to improve the quality of their lives by focusing on what matters and aiming to live each day better than the day before.
