Dublin author Anne Mercer published her second book, A Mother's Choice.
Mercer says her writing comes any time of the day--whether it's day, night or in between. She says her latest book, A Mother's Choice, comes after a run-in with alcoholism and losing her son (who has cerebral palsy) because of it.
Now she says, she's 11 years sober and has her son back.
She says she's not sure what inspired this book, but some would suggest she's been inspired by hardship.
Taking place in 1937, A Mother's Choice is about how decisions have "scattering effects."
