Attorney Accused of Stealing $3 Million from Clients, including Elderly, Pens "Self-Help" Book?

In the "Oh, Good Grief" category of books I've seen offered for sale, a Pennsylvania estate planning attorney who has reportedly entered into a plea agreement on federal charges, after being accused of stealing some $3 million from clients including the elderly, has just released a self-published book.  The title, "Courage for the Journey: Wisdom from the Broken Road," seems a bit ironic, but the description of the author as a "proud survivor of many of life's broken roads" who "cherishes each scar and dent"  is down-right startling.  The author was reportedly disbarred in February 2013. 

According to this week's news reports, the author's plea agreement, if accepted by the court, will require her to repay the victims of her crimes.
