Sharing his personal story, Frankie Princeton details the struggles of mental illness that plagued his mother throughout her life in the book, “Extraordinary Happenings on the Edge of Lunacy.”
The author recalls key details about his life as far back as two years old. He also wrote notes and shorts stories about events in his life. After his mother passed away, Princeton decided to write about her life and the struggles that came with it.
“I began caring and figuring out strategic and tactical ways to help my mother at the age of eight years old and continued that approach until her death at the age of 70 and I was 51 years of age,” said Princeton. “The few books I glanced at did not help me or my siblings because they were written by professional doctors, physicians, and psychologists who only observed mentally ill patients once they were admitted into a hospital, whereas I lived with it at home and learned the behaviors that would lead to breakdown episodes.”
“Extraordinary Happenings on the Edge of Lunacy” is a book based on Princeton’s own field work from four decades of hands-on experience and knowledge to help family members of the mentally ill.
