Beth Ann Blackwood is our second guest today and will discuss her new book Moving Forward, Looking Back. Beth Ann is an Amazon Bestselling author and self-employed commercial litigator from Dallas, Texas. She is widowed with 4 stepchildren, two step-grandchildren, and 4 recently acquired double step-grandchildren (her term for her stepson’s stepkids). She graduated from Baylor University with a degree in psychology and from Baylor Law School. She has worked in law and politics and is an AV-rated lawyer. Outside work, she is an avid marathon runner, having run 42 marathons, and hopes to compete in a half ironman.
“Moving Forward, Looking Back” is the story of a woman overcoming grief after the death of her husband. Beth Ann tells her story in two parts, before and after the death of Tom, and interweaves them together in a captivating recollection of their life together and how she finds the strength to live again. It is an inspirational back-and-forth journey through the joys and hardships of life. It is a week-by-week catalog of Beth Ann’s first year after her husband Tom’s death, written in real-time. Each of the 52 chapters is broken into two parts, starting with the present and then reflecting on the thirty-two-year tumultuous relationship between two Type A people, from its rocky beginning to its heartbreaking end. Winding its way through the dusty plains of West Texas oil country, Nixon-era dirty politics, high-stakes courtroom battles, and medical setbacks. The book tells in unflinching detail Beth Ann’s efforts to withstand her black hole of grief over Tom’s death by looking back at their imperfect, passionate love story and using every tool available to move forward into her new, unasked-for present. The part love story, part lamentation, part tentative hope, “Moving Forward, Looking Back” will resonate with anyone who has experienced devastating loss. In addition to “Moving Forward, Looking Back,” Beth Ann has authored four additional books.
