Lavinia Thompson is a journalism grad. She emerged from the dark depths of domestic violence and abuse from her childhood to find the light at the end of the tunnel to discovering her voice in writing. With that voice, she is dedicating her passion for writing into raising awareness for domestic violence. Her poetry book, "She Wasn't Allowed to Giggle" released Sept. 28, 2011, is a collection of poetry and prose based on what she experienced as a child. She also has a dark fantasy novel called "Spellbound by Fire," the first in a series, which also has the theme of preventing and stopping violence against women. "Spellbound by Fire" will be released Nov. 16, 2011 through Hellfire Publishing.
Through her writing, Lavinia wants to spread the message domestic violence victims and survivors that there is hope, help and there will be a day when the words "never again" really mean, never again. She wants to be a part of making sure everyone sees that day.
