Meet the Author
Ron Halvorson and Valerie Deilgat met in 1985 while attending an adult children of alcoholics (ACoA) meeting. During this time, Ron and Val also participated in a recovery meeting that was based on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. They realized that there were no books available that related the principles of the Steps to issues faced by those from an addictive or dysfunctional family. Members of their group began recording their thoughts and feelings based on their experiences of working the Twelve Steps in the meetings. This evolved into two books based on these personal experiences and became a way for them to share their strength and hope with others in recovery. As "Friends in Recovery," this group anonymously authored The 12 Steps for Adult Children and The 12 Steps - A Way Out with over 600,000 copies of the books in print. These were the first books to focus specifically on the Twelve Steps as they apply to adult children from dysfunctional families. In 1987 Ron and Val founded Recovery Publications, Inc. in order to publish this material. After producing these titles, they identified the need for similar materials within the Christian community. The Twelve Steps for Christians and The Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey were published in 1988 with over 500,000 now in print. These books emphasize the important relationship between the Twelve Steps and the practice of Christianity, by naming Jesus Christ as Lord and Higher Power. A revision of the books took place in 1993 with two additional books written as companions Meditations for The Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey and Prayers for The Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey.
