Bad Things Happened

Yesterday I shed a few tears when I got home after a long day and opened my mail.

This book had arrived! Bad Things Happened.

Last year I was privileged to mentor two incredibly brave ladies from the USA to write their book. They are especially brave as their story is not only deeply personal and honest but of the subject, it is predominantly about – childhood sexual abuse.

Sue and April are mum and daughter and wanted to share their individual stories of what they went through, in all of the stages of their journey’s to help others who have or are going through similar trauma.

They courageously explain in detail how they felt, how they almost lost themselves and each other but somehow they managed to get through. They learnt how to change their story and let go and to move forward despite everything they had thrown at them.

They are a blessing to this world and to see their book now in print and soon to be live on Amazon made my heart sing 


You can read my full story here, from when I was ten years old and what happened to me. I was admitted to a psychiatric unit at fifteen and continued to suffer throughout my adult life with feelings of self-hatred, fear, darkness and not knowing who I was. I used addictions to help me to cope on the outside when the inside was chaotic. I finally found my healing and had a burning desire to share this with the universe to give love, hope and inspiration to others in pain.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass
