"Biting Back takes a compelling look at self-care, setting boundaries, and protecting ourselves from friends, loved ones, enemies, and sometimes even ourselves. Written in a page-turning and warm style, Claudia’s refreshing addition to the self-help shelves offers empowering solutions to effectively remind us to stop inviting troubleinto our homes and souls." -- MELODY BEATTIE, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF CODEPENDENT NO MORE


The Accidental Host

I think it's only fair to mention here that we, as hosts, don't always exactly see what we're up to either. It's so easy to extend an invitation without even knowing. And it's so easy, too, to have motives for extending our invitations that streak by so fast we barely get a look at them. Getting lost in the dark can almost become a way of life, you know?

Fortunately for us, however, are not Undead: Any time we want to we can choose to turn on the light, look in the mirror, see what we're doing, and accept responsibility for our invitations. The vampire doesn't even have a choice about that, so it's up to us.

Our reflection. Our invitation. Our power.

Those are the rules.
