About the Author

Louise Beaubrun-Macaluso is a psychologist and author who is passionate about life. Her near-death experience, and the ensuing struggles after a fatal house fire, taught her to appreciate being alive and not take it for granted. One of her primary goals is to pay it forward and reach out to those who are facing life challenges that may seem hopeless. Several years after her burn injury, Dr. Louise wrote the book Broken to Be Blessed: A Turning Point.

Her main goal in writing her autobiography is to share her painful and faith-building journey. In her book, she discusses what she has learned with those who may be going through some rough patches in life. She enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, as well as simple pleasures like cuddling up with a good book, movies, and good food. Though she experienced one serious circumstance after another, her sense of humor remained intact, enabling her to see the lighter side of difficult situations. Dr. Louise currently lives in New Jersey with her charming husband John.
