About the Author

Deanna Adler was born in 1941 to Norman and Lillie Scheiner. She lost most of her family to the holocaust in Poland. After an abusive marriage, Deanna moved from Cleveland to LA where she raised three sons with her second husband Mel. For the last thirty years, Deanna has campaigned against drug abuse appearing on Dr. Drew's celebrity rehab, and writing "Ask Deanna" columns in Kerrang! and One Life magazines where she gave honest, hard-earned advice to teenagers on three continents. Sweet Child of Mine is her first book, a gripping memoir of her personal battle to save her son Steven, original drummer and co-founder of Guns N' Roses, from crack and heroin addiction. Lawrence J. Spagnola is the coauthor of Rodney King's memoir The Riot Within, and the New York Times Bestseller, My Appetite for Destruction. He is the Christopher Award winning writer of the Emmy winning, Golden Globe nominated holocaust film The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler. He is a Harvard graduate and a Rockefeller Fellow.


"Spagnola's writing is compelling and touching. There is no glamour to substance abuse, only self-destruction. Deanna Adler's book is a worthwhile read for anyone, as it resonates on so many levels."

"An inside story few Guns N' Roses fans have heard before."

"A gripping display of the dangers of drug addiction overcome by the persistence of a mother's love."
-#1 NYT BESTSELLING AUTHOR of 'What Do You Want to Do Before You Die'?, Jonathan Penn

"The only thing more relentless than the ravaging effects of drug addiction is Adler's commitment to her son's well-being. Sweet Child of Mine provides a beacon of hope to anyone who has a family member struggling with addiction."

"Behind every strong drummer there is an even stronger mother."
