New Memoir Reveals the Story of Dona Speir, Playboy centerfold, B-movie star, sexual abuse survivor, recovering substance abuser and now a recovery coach

Miniver Press announces publication of a memoir by model, actress, and recovery coach Dona Speir: “Naked Truth: The Fall and Rise of Dona Speir” (ISBN: 978-1939282422). Co-written with author/journalist Chris Epting, this memoir reveals the hard truths, personal struggles, and eventual triumph over abuse, sexual exploitation, and addiction of her life.

Speir’s story goes from the depths of child abuse, drug and alcohol addiction, preyed upon by powerful men like Bill Cosby, to the rarified world of international modeling and global jet-setting, being a Playboy Centerfold photographed by the world-famous Arny Freytag to starring in seven Andy Sidaris action adventure films.

This study of her survival is a provocative, powerful blueprint of how to not just survive, but recover and thrive. Dona is 32 years sober and CEO of Recovery Coaching Experts. She has mentored hundreds of women with substance abuse and behavioral issues, she has also founded women’s recovery homes, and her book can help others learn how to identify the traits of sexual predators and protect themselves and their families.

Dona’s experiences can help women understand and survive the social, physical and emotional aspects of substance abuse and lead a peaceful, complete, whole and safe family life. It’s a cautionary tale, but it’s also a triumphant one; filled with many uplifting, exciting stories of perseverance that are both timely and timeless.

“Dona Speir proves to be as revealing, engaging and entertaining — and, yes, as courageous — as she’s ever been on screen in the pages of her riveting autobiography.” – Joe Leydan, Variety
