I am many things. Wife, mother, dog enthusiast, writer, poet and someone who cares about others. I have created this blog to connect with people who may be hurting, from living years with a secret. I have also had a secret, but soon my secret will be a secret no more.
I was one of the many adults who were sexually abused as children. I suffered for it, but now I’m better. Creative writing has been my saviour, and now I want to help others. To facilitate this, I am starting this blog, to give a place for others to come and rest, and also to let people know more about what I am doing.
I have spent time writing on the theme of abuse, and have now put my first poetry collection together. I am available to speak to groups about my experience, and am also interested in running creative writing workshops to help give abuse victims the right to own their story.
Writing about the bad things can be a powerful form of therapy. I’m living proof of that!
