Searingly honest, witty and engaging account of the life of a Florida junkie in the 1970s. "In my 13 years as books editor of the Sun-Sentinel, this is only the second time I have written a letter of recommendation for an unpublished manuscript. Sweet Fire is a searingly honest, often funny, always sordid story of a junkie’s life in the 1970s."—Chauncey Mabe, Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
Trish spends her time hustling and cheating to score. Heroin, dilaudids, whatever she can get. She travels from Florida to California and Mexico, hustling all the way, and always in the company of the wrong kind of men, whom she attracts wherever she goes. As her life spirals out of control and from one man to another, we discover there’s more to her addiction than the drugs.
Pat MacEnulty lives in Charlotte, North Carolina where she works as a freelance editor, ghostwriter and book reviewer.

'A searingly honest, often funny, always sordid story of a junkie's life. It takes in adiction, crime, sex, family drama, love, death, failed rehab, the onset of the HIV epidemic, and the junkie's willingness to use anyone, anytime, to get a fix, no matter the consequences... a remarkable book' Chauncey Mabe, Sun-Sentinel
