Dennie Maverick is a writer, public speaker, mother, and mental health warrior based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Living with bipolar disorder and general anxiety disorder, Dennie writes about her first-hand experience raising a family, building a career, and downright surviving during the worst of times in her blog and in her upcoming book, Wacky and Proud of It. It’s not always easy to read, but it’s not always easy to survive, either. Dennie holds nothing back in Wacky and Proud of It, knowing her stories resonate with others living through similar experiences.

“I am not a professional and I do not have all of the answers, but I have found a place where I have a quality of life. I had to fight damn hard to get here. I pray that among my words, you discover that you are not alone, and above all else, I hope that my words give you hope.” –Dennie Maverick
