Jozzie Ray is the author of Seasonal Affective Disorder Treatment: Since Humans Shouldn’t Hibernate.
Born in central Massachusetts toward the end of the typewriter generation. Raised in a household that evolved from having a color television with rabbit ears to cable television with a remote control. Familiar with the less intelligent rotary phones, busy signals, and answering machine tapes. Graduated high school just as dial up internet and Prozac were becoming popular.
Initially learned about Seasonal Affective Disorder from an Oprah episode in the early 1990s and wished she had taped it on her VCR. She has spent over 25 years reading physically printed books which discuss brain chemical imbalances and a variety of other health issues. She has personally wasted thousands of dollars on gimmicks and supplements that don’t work, only to diligently continue self-experimentation and finally conclude which ones may actually be effective.
She has been well schooled in the art of sarcasm, and is a “wanna-be” neurobiologist. Known for her outgoing personality, she hides her inner introvert and is actually a closet writer and poet. She can’t draw or color in the lines, but is forever grateful for the invention of Photoshop so she could finally capture her imagination on paper and design this book cover.
She lives by the mantra that laughter heals, and with the heart of a child still hopes she can make a difference in this world. Happily married for over a decade and a half, and proud mother of two tween-agers who ironically are also well versed in the art of sarcasm.
She currently resides in Chesapeake, Virginia with her laptop computer, high speed internet connection, and wicked bad Boston accent. She has now finally finished writing and actually published her first book at age 39 1/2 years old …and as a direct result of this book her house is now a total mess.
