What do yo do when you've been married to a man for 30+ years and he becomes a different person to you? You become afraid for your life but you're having a hard time of letting go, of deciding if you should leave. If you stay you may become a static, and/or victim.
I chose to stay because we had longevity and years of memories, which was probably not a good reason. I didn't think of his name calling arguing, etc. as abuse and that's how we women trick ourselves. We don't equate the mental/emotional abuse in the same category as the physical abuse. Face it ladies, let's keep it real-we all get "I'm not letting another woman have what it took..." syndrome.
KISS'D is a book written with separation/divorce, African American women and the abuse we suffer in mind, based on my experience. This is a straight to the point book about surviving the emotional and physical issues of separation and/or divorce. Kept in Silence Surviving Divorce because most women don't know what they are entitled to and in the case of abuse they don't report it for various reasons. African America women make up the biggest statistics; maybe that's why it's called an "unreported epidemic."

About the Author
I am what is southernly referred to as a GRITS-Girl raised in the south. Born and raised in the ATL, I attended (at the time) a well known academically acclaimed high school. It took me a while to get in the college spirit; but once I started, I attended several institutions of higher learning. One of those colleges was Brenau where I received my Associate Degree in Business Administration, I've also received an ABA paralegal certificate, I completed GMLS Real Estate school, although I am not licensed yet, and a certificate from Thomas Institute for P&C Insurance. I also attended GSU working on a minor in Psychology. I think I've decided to go back and complete my studies. At the present I do poetry on open mic's around the city of ATL and my next book will be my book of poetry. I've always been told that you are never to old to learn and I guess I'm proof of that. I believe if you think there is nothing else for you to learn or gain knowledge of, then life has no amazement for you and you are only existing.
