“The Stairs” is an emotional, spiritual and psychological, journey through Alice’s childhood, living in a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath Tudor home in University Heights, Ohio.

With 9 children (two with schizophrenia) life was a roller coaster ride, literally, as her Dad worked for Cedar Point, the largest amusement park in the midwest.  

Life on Allison Road was at times traumatic, at times hilarious, and provided a lifetime of issues to heal.

Alice weaves memories of her childhood with historical events, painting a vivid picture of life as a child in the 1960s and 70’s.
