I write fiction with a purpose - I believe ONE person can make a difference. I grew up as the youngest child in a very large family and viewed everything from the outside looking in. That's a perfect position from an author's point of view, but not so terrific from a child's point of view growing up.
My firm belief that all things happen for a reason have drawn me to write fiction that will touch people and bring to light very real situations that occur around all of us; but don't be fooled, the story will capture the reader and reviewers agree, my novels are page turners.
Domestic abuse is a subject that literally affects every family in this country, and throughout the world. There is not one person that I have spoken to that does not know a member of their family tree that has been touched by domestic abuse. Be it physical, emotional, mental, sexual, alcohol or drug related. All of these forms of abuse can be boiled down to domestic abuse as they alter the way a family lives and behaves.
Domestic abuse is a quiet demon that affects all walks of life: rich or poor. It is often kept hidden and the victims are ashamed of their fate.I write to shine the light so maybe someone will see that victims are not to blame. I weave a tale incorporating a story of average people getting involved in average issues that they cannot control. My hope is that someone will pick up one of my books and realize that they are not alone, that there are thousands of people available to them, to help them. I do believe that one person can make a difference. If a controlling person can persuade someone into their lair, the victim never sees it coming, and is not aware that their own persona is gone.
Please enjoy the books, and if you have any thoughts or feedback, please feel free to write, I promise I'll write back!
