Told in the voice of June, the story's protagonist, Mother's Child is a "slice of life" as it unfolds during a short period in a lifetime; strung together by one intensely charged event after another. It is the humor of life, marriage, and motherhood surrounded by the challenges of fighting the onslaught of mitochondrial disease, broken societal systems, and the suffering of broken hearts. It is the story of the average woman, finding her extraordinary voice and having the courage to be heard.
About the Author
Michael Conant is the publisher and founder of Incorgnito Publishing Press. Before entering the world of book publishing, he spent over twenty years in b2b publishing as a circulation, sales, and marketing executive where he managed products across several industries, with a concentration in financial markets. Prior to a publishing career, Michael pursued a love of theater as an actor, singer, director, and producer in productions at regional, summer stock, and dinner theaters. Michael introduced NY audiences to the premier of Hal Shaper's musical adaptation of Jane Eyre, which included a very young Alyssa Milano as Rochester's ward, Adelle. After moving to Pasadena, CA, Mr. Conant joined forces with a group of Mito Moms and lead their effort, as the founding president, to secure non-profit status for their newly formed, CureMito. The new organization helped to raise awareness and funding for Dr. Richard Boles' Mitochondrial Disease research at Los Angeles Children's Hospital. In between publishing duties and new writing efforts, Michael plays a lot of tennis with South Pasadena, Arroyo Seco teammates, and tries to spend time visiting his family and getting "puppy" kisses from his niece's lovable, crazy Bernedoodle, Bentley.
