She currently writes a memoir about loving and losing a tough parent, maintaining hope, and reconciling with abuse, scheduled for completion 2017.
After the death of her father, and in financial straits and separated from her children, she left NYC to visit her mother in Wichita, Kansas. This temporary visit turned into a prolonged stay with her mother that challenged Margery's ability to reconcile her mental and emotional state with that of her family. For nearly two years Margery and her children lived with her compulsive hoarder mother and schizophrenic uncle in a filthy home in a poverty state. As her mother's mental health declined, so did Margery's, who struggled with leaving her stubborn mother behind and returning to NYC or staying among the family dysfunction, including sometimes violent conflict with two older brothers, who refused to believe their mother's health was deteriorating. Ultimately, a rare cancer diagnosis would decide.
