It always feels so good to hear from readers that they love my books and want more!

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

If you are a teen boy, work with boys, or have a son, I hope you’ll read this important, powerful, and eye-opening article

If you are a teen boy, work with boys, or have a son, I hope you’ll read this important, powerful, and eye-opening article by @halseanderson about boys and consent, and then have some open, honest discussions. If we want a world with less sexual violence, we need to have these conversations and help boys understand how important consent is.
