Jane Velez-Mitchell is the author of iWant: My Journey from Addiction and Overconsumption to a Simpler, Honest Life (Health Communications, $14.95 new in pb).
When Jane Velez-Mitchell got sober 14 years ago, she got in touch with her authentic self, which included getting honest with her sexuality. At 51, this investigative journalist , author and host of HLN's "Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell," came out as a lesbian on national radio and has continued to keep working on getting honest in all areas of her life. In iWant, Jane shares her personal journey of gradually stripping away her compulsive cravings for 'everything' to lead a more serene and authentic existence--and in doing so, clears a path anyone would be wise to follow. Jane is known for her intense news style and her dedication to animal activism, women's issues and generally shining light on all the self-destructive habits that plague Americans.
