This book is good for women who are in a abusive relationship/marriage. There are ways to escaped...After 10 years of abuse, I left with a n 18 month old and disappeared for 8 months. When I was found, I was informed that I had to return to the state of my official residence or face kidnapping charges. 2 years of broken restraining orders, reaching a settlement but than telling the court that wasn't what he agreed to, etc....i finally got a divorce. I takes courage to do these things, but in the end we become stronger women. Thank You for writing about this subject.

The book tackles the very serious topic of domestic abuse. The story was told in a straightforward manner. There was a line told by the male character that spoke to me " couldn't have been saved if you hadn't wanted to be". He was right. In the end, we are our superhero,

About the author

 I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, spending most of my time daydreaming or playing around in the mud. I grew out of the mud play, well, most of the time, a good soak in the mud is always fun. I still daydream often and sometimes my daydreams interrupt my daydreams. So I write to remember them. If I didn't write, I think my mind would explode from an overload of fantasy and weirdness. To the annoyance of my friends and family, my characters sometimes become a part of my world. During my childhood, I would frequently get in trouble in school for daydreaming. Eventually, my vivid imagination paid off and I had the privilege of writing and co-directing my sixth-grade class play--a dreadful disaster, though not from my writing, of course. I'm pretty sure it was the acting.

I enjoy writing about characters living in small quaint towns and tend to lean toward the unusual and edgy.

My paranormal playing field delves into a different milieu, abandoning vampires and werewolves, but not discounting them. Someday I might like to write a novel about vamps and those furry creatures. But for now I like the bizarre mixed with romance. A strong hero or heroine confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers and capabilities gets my blood running hot as does an steamy contemporary romantic suspense.
