My Book

Escaping the Boy: My Life with a SociopathRevisited 
(published August 2012)

Praise for "Escaping the Boy"  by!

This is the story of a seemingly innocent little boy who grows into a ferocious, conscienceless, ugly monster that destroys and devours everything good and pure that crosses his path. From tender childhood friendships to sweet innocent romancesnothing is immune to the monster's dark spell and insidious nature.

This is also a story of survival and hope: survival of intimate partner abuse and hope that one day there will be an end to domestic violence and to the suffering of the silent victims.
