Hopefully this woman’s stories will reach out and all who read them to understand why children need to be protected, nurtured and cherished.
Imagine: A happy little three-year old girl taken from her bed in the middle of the night by her father, a man she adores…then things change for this little girl as she experiences a life no child should ever be subjected to.
Like so many others, I am a survivor of child abuse. I was that little 3-year old kid kidnapped by her father in the middle of the night. For the next six years I lived a life on the run, hungry, abused and terrified. Thanks to the mind’s ability to “disassociate” in times of extreme terror, I survived only because of this disorder.
The fear I felt was so intense I split into multiple personalities.
NOTE: Bitter Memories is not a cozy, feel-good book. It is a true story of extreme and horrific child abuse and the will to survive.
Strong language and graphic content!
Bitter Memories is the start of my story; Trophy Murders and Cutter’s Revenge completes the trilogy. My newest book, From The Heart exposes feelings I’ve never shared.
BITTER MEMORIES is the actual true story of my life, written with the hope of helping other survivors, and to help stop abuse from happening to other kids by spreading awareness.
TROPHY MURDERS is the creative non-fiction/crime fiction sequel, and is an action-packed story about a sadistic gang of killers, and the life of the cop (my uncle/adoptive father) who tries to bring justice and solace back to his little town while struggling to keep his own family secrets hidden.
CUTTER’S REVENGE, although mostly fiction, completes the trilogy with another ruthless serial killer stalking our small town. This time years of secrets and lies are finally revealed as I turn my story of tragedy around the way I want it to be, and with a happy ending.

Oh heavens.. I don’t know what to say. I was older and that was bad enough but three years old and the biological father.
We each cope in different ways I guess and I have been fortunate enough to put it behind me, I think.
I will most definitely be reading more. xx
