It always feels so good to hear from readers that they love my books and want more! (beaming) Thank you Cristina; I so appreciate it!

From Cristina Elizondo: “Cheryl Rainfield. A wonderful friend and a great writer. I have these two books and they are awesome. It’s hard to get the book called SCARS but I moved mountains and the sea and whatever else I had to move to get the book and I got it !!!!! I’m so happy. From a scale 1 to 10, I recommend her books 125 !!! Keep writing girl and once you do, I’ll but that book too. You’re awesome !!!!!” #cherylrainfield #scars #STAINED #selfharm #sexualabuse #trauma #healing #YAlitmentalhealth #YAsaves #YAwriter #LGBTQwriter #booknerd #bookworm #ireadYA #survivor #feminist #YAlit #YAbooks #bookstagram #bookrecs #bookrecommendations Continue reading

I appreciate this curated list

I appreciate this curated list author @gdcribbs created of YA books that deal with sexual abuse, sexual assault, trafficking, and more. It’s so important to have these books and these discussions, to #BelieveSurvivors and hear them, to help each other heal. And I am so glad to have my books included in this powerful list. #MeToo
