Growing up in 1970s and 80s suburban Houston, Judy Haveson is funny,
sarcastic, and fiercely loyal, especially to her family, friends, and big
sister, Celia. When she suffers a series of unimaginable traumatic events,
her seemingly idyllic childhood comes to a halt, changing her life

In Laugh Cry Rewind, Judy takes readers on her journey of self-discovery,
sharing funny, touching, and heartbreaking stories from her childhood all
the way to the birth of her son. Her experiences serve as a reminder that
while life is not always fair, ultimately, the choice to surrender or keep
on living is ours. Her message to others who have experienced loss or
tragedy is this: stop waiting for the other shoe to drop. Let life go on,
and good things will be waiting for you on the other side of the pain.

This is a raw account of Judy Havenson’s life and she brings her reader along for it all. There are ups and downs, heartbreaking moments and moments that give you hope.
Haveson really powers through her life and takes the bad and perseveres, it’s inspirational.
The low moments brought tears to my eyes, but at other moments she made me laugh out loud.
Wonderful memoir.

About the Author

Judy Haveson is a proud Texan who will never lose her southern charm or
accent and uses both when the situation absolutely calls for it. Her
one-time dream of becoming a journalist was shattered when a professor
suggested she pick a new major due to her penchant for obsessive
conversation. He claimed she’d be an editor’s nightmare because
she wrote as she spoke and never stopped talking. This led her to a career
in public relations. Judy’s fixation with reading books and stories
about other people’s lives inspired her to write her debut memoir. She
currently lives in The Hamptons with her husband, Adam, son, Jack, and
beloved Yorkie, Toby.
