Keri

Overview

Although long-winded and only covering a period of fifteen traumatic years, this biography is a true account of hidden child abuse. It is not for the faint-hearted. Kat Ward relates, with utter candour, her experiences at the hands of the mother who hated her even before she was born, her step-father, who regarded her as something to be used on a whim and her step-father's friends -- to whom he 'sold' her.

Overview

Although long-winded and only covering a period of fifteen traumatic years, this biography is a true account of hidden child abuse. It is not for the faint-hearted. Kat Ward relates, with utter candour, her experiences at the hands of the mother who hated her even before she was born, her step-father, who regarded her as something to be used on a whim and her step-father's friends -- to whom he 'sold' her.

Even with so-called 'professionals' involved and despite the fact that Keri told the truth to her teacher, priest, social workers and child psychiatrist, nothing got better. In fact, things got worse and worse.

Meet the Author

Kat Ward is fifty something and lives in the United Kingdom in an ex-coal-mining village on the border of England and Wales which is beautiful and whilst rural, close enough to nearby towns so as not to be too isolated.

Stress, anxiety and trauma have been so much part of Kat's life, right from the beginning that she has continued to survive everything life has thrown at her as if surviving has become a habit she absolutely cannot break.

Kat gave birth to 7 children but, having been set up to fail, it would surprise no-one to learn that she only managed to parent three of them. The three boys, the youngest of which is just about eighteen at the time of writing, and Kat is enormously proud of them all.

Nine cats and two dogs share Kat's home and are probably spoiled rotten, although being fur-babies, they don't realise this.

Kat has a great many tattoos, none of which she regretted until she became old and then only because they've faded somewhat and the wrinkles rather spoil the effect!

Given to rambling somewhat to anyone patient enough to listen, Kat has unlimited interests, opinions and complex views on very nearly every subject under the sun but thinks, in general, most of the human race is pretty nasty.

    This is a heart wrenching true stoy of a horibly treated girl.

    This is a heart wrenching true stoy of a horibly treated girl. I believe her. I hope that where ever you are Kat, that you are healing and having as best of a live you can have. Where ever that horrible woman is I wish her the worst that life has to hold, being alone, unloved, pain, a troubled mind and broken sleep, and someone that treats her the way she treated you. I just wish that there were some way to help take the hurt from your heart and mind. Just know, that she had that male she married are pure evil. Please know that people care about you. People believe you. People that read your book will be outraged. I am amazed that you survived. Please get your next book finishd, I know it must be difficult to write, bringing up all the memories to the surface again.
