Derek Chowen, RCP - Author

"What is your 'why,' Derek?"
The answer is easy: "YOU!"

Discovering Joy | Fulfilling A Dream | Helping Others

My bio says, "Derek Chowen is a Recovery Coach Professional turned author,  with a background in everything else. He adapts techniques learned in addiction recovery certification classes to help others navigate daily life through books, podcasts, and speaking engagements. Personal experiences and wit are interjected to soften the edges of rough topics, encourage healing from these rough topics, and change lives."

I say, "I try to write from a relatable standpoint to touch your soul, not step on it."
