About the Author
Jeanette Elisabeth Menter is a former newspaper columnist, freelance magazine writer and Christian Lay Counselor. She began her writing career at the age of sixteen. Her interest in codependency is based in her own experiences. Having had to live through a childhood filled with addiction, abuse, ongoing shame as a way of control and more, she knows what readers are dealing with. "I had the very real need to share what I have learned along the way about this dibilitating problem. I present codependency in a whole new light and believe that anyone who commits to what is laid out in this book will see positive changes in their lives." Born in Munich, Germany, she was raised in Ohio. At the age of twenty-two she bought a one-way train ticket to California to escape a violent relationship. She spent the next 28 years there and had an successful advertising career for over twenty years. Yet inside she was still battling the demons of codependency. In 2007 she received her Bachelor's Degree (Cum Laude) from Indiana Wesleyan University with a focus on communications. She and her husband, John moved to Las Vegas in 2012 to be nearer to their grown children in California. "It's amazing how many people still don't understand codependency, even when it is consuming them and those they love. The need to fix others is always easier than accepting we are codependent and need help." "You're Not Crazy-You're Codependent" is Jeanette Menter's first book. "Like addiction, once a codependent, always a codependent. The difference is now I control it...it doesn't control me."
