About the author:

Chloé McFeters is a writer, director, producer, and personal historian, and the owner of Tortoise and Finch Productions, LLC, an independent production company specializing in projects concerning social justice, public health, and human interest. She is the director and executive producer of You Look a Lot Like Me, a documentary film exploring the topic of intimate partner violence in the United States. The film is currently used as an informational and training resource in a variety of settings across the U.S., including universities, mental health clinics, libraries, etc.

In May 2017, Chloé released six coloring book journals for adults exploring a variety of topics and experiences, including surviving domestic violence, providing care for an adult loved one, and living with cancer or heart disease.

Her first job was at a Dunkin’ Donuts and she wasn’t very good at it. She can’t remember whether or not she was fired, but feels fairly certain she should have been.

When she's not working, Chloé enjoys reading, dancing, cooking, gardening, traveling, and Red Sox baseball.

The Ally Within

A Coloring Book Journal for Living with Autoimmune Related Diseases

Authored by Chloe McFeters
Contributions by Celina Jo DiRado, Jennifer Dawn Gabiola, Katie Simons
Edited by Stephen T. Vessels
Edition: 1

If you are one of the millions of people around the world (upwards of twenty-three million in the U.S. alone) who have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease (or multiple autoimmune diseases), you know all too well the uncertainties, adjustments, trials, and see-sawing emotions of coping with the disease’s effects.

The Ally Within invites you to reflect gently upon your circumstances, and take respite in the calming activity of coloring. The book’s journal prompts are designed to invite you to write about the practical and emotional aspects of living with an autoimmune related disease. The mandalas and abstract patterns provide an opportunity to disengage from concerns and fears, allowing your mind and senses to flow with colors and creative self-discovery.
