Carly Israel loves her tattoos. The tattoos Carly has on her body represent things or phrases that are meaningful to her. One of these phrases is The North Star. This metaphor is what keeps Carly together when things get tough. You see, the North Star represents her sons. She will do anything for her boys. This is clear when you read her beautifully written and at times raw and heart wrenching memoir Seconds and Inches.
Find out about Carly’s drug and alcohol addiction and how she was only seconds and inches away from succeeding in a suicide attempt. You will be astonished at how she rises from the flames, gets married, has three sons, gets divorced and then re marries. Carly finds herself traveling through hallways of loneliness and fear as she navigates walking through fire a second and third time.
Carly’s experiences have set her in great stead for her work as a divorce coach, podcaster, writer and author.
