I am struggling a bit on my birthday as I always do.

I am struggling a bit on my birthday as I always do. Cults teach victims to kill themselves on their birthdays if they are no longer being abused (or abusing). BUT each year it gets a little easier and  better. I so appreciate all the birthday wishes and caring comments. They mean so much to me! I usually try to answer each one but can’t with my torn rotator cuff. Just know that I read each one and I so appreciate it! Jean, my therapist who is like a mom to me, and who I dedicate every book to, is coming to see me; I have some gifts from my dear friend Julie in front of me (comics! Art!), and got myself a few things. And I am grateful for my books that help others, for my friends, Petal, chosen family, and all of you.
.
Also I am grateful for speech-to-text! It helps a lot.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
