Overview

My own (his)story, as "Patricia," is candidly told to both enlighten and alert. Although graphic, it does not sensationalize on purpose; that is not the intent of this book. Childhood Abuse is a disease that our society can cure and prevent. It is the World's dark secret. It knows no boundaries within individual countries, Racial, Economic, or Social groups.

There are no clear- cut definitions as to what is and isn’t abuse. If the action is harmful to the child, it is unhealthy and therefore abusive.

This is a disease that does not call for extensive scientific research looking for a cure, such as Cancer, Diabetes etc. Rather, it is a disease that elicits recognition and commitment on the part of all responsible adolescents and adults. Early recognition, acknowledgement, and subsequent intervention are necessary.

However, the abused, as well as the abuser, need rehabilitation after that point or the cycle perpetuates itself and the statistics remain a constant. Once the abuse stops…it is far from over, as the startling statistics indicate.

The consequences of Childhood Abuse affect the quality of life for everyone in their country, not just its survivors. Its effects are far-reaching and negative.

My spirit and attitude are the exception for those that are abuse survivors. The overwhelming majority of its victims are not nearly so fortunate as myself. Amazingly, I have beaten all the odds and it is hoped that others will benefit from my methods and journey as well. Let the healing begin.

Meet the Author

For most of my career, I taught English/ Writing on the high school and college levels. Now, I am blessed to be able to write full-time. In addition to Spirit Unbroken (non-fiction), about my own abusive childhood, I have a new, romantic novel available: Men Can Be Mean. ( The title is actually a double entendre/ pun on Men can Be Me-n... ah, yes!) It has been given excellent reviews by Critics and was featured in USA Today. It is proof positive that although periods of our individual lives are riddled with tests and challenges... we are indeed products of what we choose to do for ourselves... not what has BEEN DONE TO US. I am honored to continue my writing career in many venues.

Both books are available on line, in multiple formats, and in paperback at Amazon, Barnes and Noble etc.

I am a resident of the glorious Georgia Coast, Tybee Island. In addition to my own continued writings for publication, I freelance edit, and write a Life Positive weekly blog, also called Spirit Unbroken; it is followed world wide.

My passion has always been to improve the lives of children. It continues to be. For several decades I have been involved with St Jude Children's Hospital, Special Olympics, and other children's causes.
