Melody Beattie is one of America’s most beloved self-help authors and a household name in addiction and recovery circles.
Her international bestselling book, Codependent No More, introduced the world to the term “codependency” in 1986.
Millions of readers have trusted Melody’s words of wisdom and guidance because she knows firsthand what they’re going through.
In her lifetime, she has survived abandonment, kidnapping, sexual abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, divorce, and the death of a child. “Beattie understands being overboard, which helps her throw bestselling lifelines to those still adrift,” said Time Magazine.
Her 24-year writing career has produced fifteen books published in twenty languages and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles. She has been a frequent guest on many national television shows, including Oprah.
She and her books continue to be featured regularly in national publications including Time, People, and most major periodicals around the world.
