About me

Gender Female
Location British Columbia, Canada
Introduction I am an author, speaker, and a coach. I am also a survivor, actually a thriver. Healing is near and dear to my heart. You see, I grew up in a home that was rife with abuse, so I've been healing all of my life. I created this blog to share my knowledge, experience, expertise, and yes, even wisdom. I've written several books about various forms of violence and abuse. The first was my memoir, From Victim to Victory, How I got over the devastating effects of child abuse. When I wrote that book I thought it would help others with their healing. But Neale Donald Walsch of Conversations With God, told me recently, "You've written how YOU healed. Now it's time to write how OTHERS can heal." I am now focused on writing that book. I've been married to my husband, John, for 33 years. I used to wonder how I could have found such a supportive loving man. Now I know that even when I was troubled I had the presence of mind to know that I was worthy of someone good in my life. I also know that he's got it just a wonderful as I do!
