What would you do if you won the lottery?
Since winning the Missouri Powerball in April 2006, Sandra Hayes has learned how to cope with the unanticipated pitfalls of a dream come true. Her new book, How Winning the Lottery Changed My Life (published by AuthorHouse), deals with the aftermath of a transformative life moment.
Winning the lottery wasnt the best thing that could have happened to me like a lot of people think, says Hayes. I received love and hate and dealt with both hopes and regrets. This is not just a rags-to-riches story, but a story that speaks about the highs and lows of life.
A frank telling of the baggage that comes along with big winnings, How Winning the Lottery Changed My Life (published by AuthorHouse) confronts the hard truths that accompany immediate wealth and fame.
Overnight, Hayes went from unsuspecting St. Louis resident to lottery winner. With the win leading to the unfortunate complication of relationships, Hayes questions whether or not winning the lottery was a positive thing in her life.
After national attention, a role on TLCs reality show Million Dollar Christmas and an upheaval of her personal life, Hayes believes she has found the answer to the question, Is a windfall of money a blessing or a curse?
Change can be a good thing for you or a bad thing for you, she says. Make the change; do not let the change make you.
