Since Unlock The Door-Beyond Sexual Abuse was published I haven't been partaking in lot of book writing. Quite frankly, I was exhausted by the 420 page marathon. When combined with a number of other things happening in my life, the process was grueling. However, I certainly learned a considerable amount about 'how' to will write and deliver a book. UTD is still an infant and I am now talking to publicists and publishers in order to swim in the ocean verse treading in my pool. (I welcome input).
Post UTD I shifted into a musical persona and have written all or in-part well over 100 songs. Is that what silencing something for thirty years, then opening it will do? As a mentor, Rosemary Phelan, said to me, "When you are ready the songs, which have been waiting inside of you, will express themselves." Music is now an active part of who I am and I will continue to experiment with my voice and music. Frightening as it is to me some-days, a CD is in the works.
Back to books--I am passionate about writing and sharing. As 2015 quickly approaches I am being pulled into another book-or two. In saying that.....
I am currently booking interviews with themes regarding: confronting the offender/reporting the abuse/why I never told/and/shame.
The next book will be the second in the UTD series. If you are not familiar with my book, "Unlock The Door-Beyond Sexual Abuse," you can read the first 100 pages by subscribing here:
