May 11, 2016 Took some time away from work and writing. Vacation time, went on a 7-day cruise, flew into Puerto Rico to board the Carnival Cruise ship. We made stops to Barbados, St Lucia, St Thomas VI, and St. Marteen, such beautiful islands. We had an awesome time. We did zip lining and snorkeling, […]
May 15, 2016 My significant other and I went to see Captain America: Civil War. I enjoy marvel adventure movies. Very action packed with a sense of humor, especially Iron Man played by actor Robert Downey. Iron Man never fails to have a sarcastic remark. Can’t wait for the next one. I am still writing and […]

Thursday, October 29, 2015 So, I am getting ready for next week, the book launch. I am nervous because I am a people person but not a public speaker. I have no clue as what to do with a book launch. I never intended for my book to go any further than to Amazon. It […]
Who would have thought becoming a writer/author would be the scariest experience? My thoughts were why would I write, would anyone read my book? My mind was racing. Who do I contact, where should I start, where can I find help? Can I truly be a good writer, am I cut out for this?
We will soon find out as I continue my journey of writing, learning, editing and publishing.

Slightly Bruised and a Little Broken: A Memoir
Mother paid close attention and noticed everything that went on with me as a child. However, she was unaware that her step dad, Liam, was molesting her ten-year-old child. I was living out of town with my grandparents. My mother was not there.
I don’t blame her for not being aware; she thought I would be safe with my grandparents.
Back then, I could never understand the need to latch onto something, the need to feel loved, the need to feel needed and the need to be saved. I also never realized the power of a simple touch. Now, looking back on my years as a child, I understand and I have learned the importance of listening to the whispering of my heart.
