D'Anne Burwell

D'Anne Burwell

Winner of the 2016 Eric Hoffer Award in Memoir, the 2016 Eric Hoffer First Horizon Award, and the 2015 USA Best Book Award for Addiction & Recovery.

Raised in Northern California, D'Anne Burwell's first career was as a teacher. She holds a Master's in Education and taught English for a decade in Portland, Oregon.

Since marrying and moving back to Silicon Valley, D'Anne's primary career has been motherhood. Her life changed forever when her firstborn swerved onto the path of addiction, and for eight tumultuous years she has submerged herself in advocating for her son and researching his disease--a wrenching doctorate by fire.

D'Anne provides crucial information and resources to families dealing with addiction on her book website SavingJakeBook.com. She speaks nationally, answers her phone when a parent calls struggling with an addicted child, and works to organize community events aimed at raising awareness of the drug crisis.

The mother of two young adults, D'Anne Burwell lives with her husband in Silicon Valley.
