Having gone through the experience of the poor health leading to the deaths of two husbands, as well as the deaths of her father, mother, sister, many family members and friends, Emily Thiroux Threatt has much experience in the grieving process and has learned to face life with love, optimism, and joy.
Emily has kept journals and written to express herself most of her life. She earned a master’s degree in English with a concentration in writing which led to her career teaching writing at the university level for 30 years including being a pioneer in online education and writing university textbooks. After having two husbands die, she naturally turned to writing to deal with her grief. She also is teaching those dealing with loss how to use writing to deal with their grief.
Her new book, Loving and Living Your Way Through Grief, was released in January 2021 by Mango Publishing and provides guidance for navigating the downs and ups of the unfamiliar territory of grief. Each of the twenty-six chapters includes a practice which can support and comfort the reader.
