Book Launch Celebration and Signing Nov. 17th, North Coast Calvary Chapel, Carlsbad

Carlsbad, CA – North County San Diego mother, entrepreneur and author Phyllis Hall has introduced “With Me Always”, an inspiring new book based on her true story that helps families deal with the sudden and tragic loss of loved ones.


The beautifully-illustrated storybook (local illustrator Bonnie Bright) takes those coping with grief on a kind of magical journey toward a more comforted and calming emotional space. Be they parents, children or others dealing with an unexpected and traumatic loss of a family member, “With Me Always” takes you there where you need to be.


With Me Always” is a heartwarming ‘fable style’ and endearing experience, complete with compassionate characters like baby Angelheart and the parents who love him. The tale is lovingly told in a beautifully written way that preserves the strong family bond that survives loss, yet reminds us that time spent with loved ones is precious and fleeting. The new book also looks at the emotions of separation or losing a loved one and offers the comfort that comes with faith and understanding.


Author Phyllis Hall, whose own two sons died in a motor vehicle accident at ages 21 and 22, offers that “With Me Always” is a story for children and adult readers that focuses on the happiness shared by the main character. A central message reflected by Angelheart and his parents is the fact that their sincere expression of love will truly last forever.


Says Hall: “I realized over the years that I could truly help other families by sharing the things that have gotten me through the sudden loss of loved ones. Our faith and our family bond become even more important. Those we lose never really go away … they are always with us in our heart. We can turn our deep sadness into other avenues and expressions of deep love for others – above all, ourselves.”


As her own way of coping with grief and loss, the author has shared her personal tragedy through grace and simplicity in variety of ways over the years. In addition to her book, her ‘newest expression of dealing with tragedy’, Hall has also designed a popular themed jewelry collection called ‘Angelheart’™, available through local retail outlets and online.


Phyllis Hall will host a public conversation (and book signing) sharing her powerful story at the North Coast Calvary Chapel in Carlsbad on Friday, November 17, 2017 from 6 pm – 8: 30 pm. for more details about the book and other information, visit: or call: 760-518-3800.
