I am always so happy to see readers who connected with me following their own heart, dreams

I am always so happy to see readers who connected with me following their own heart, dreams and creative endeavours. So I was delighted to hear from Jacob Lasher that he’s written and published MORE TO LIFE, a book of poetry dealing with trauma and child abuse (both physical and sexual) and healing. I’ve only just read the first few poems and already found them moving, honest, and brave, compelling and relatable. Another strong survivor voice. I look forward to reading the rest.

My #BelieveSurvivors poem. Keep fighting.

You think you silenced me
You think you broke my hope
But I am just girding myself up for the long fight.
I won’t give up; I can’t.
It is my life – and that of others on the line.
So I will rest recharge
heal connect get inspired
and then I will fight.

Thank you so very much each of you you’ve let others know that you love my books. I appreciate you! And thank you so very much to Lynne Postlewait for this tweet!

I will always write strong girl characters who save themselves, survivors, and #lgbtqia characters.

As a fellow survivor, I believe, hear, and stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

As a fellow survivor, I believe, hear, and stand with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. I applaud her courage and strength in speaking out in a society that consistently blames, does not believe, and fails to support survivors and women. In a society that values men and their power over the lives, safety, and mental health of women and other survivors.

All of the attacks on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford are yet another example of our #rapeculture where men, and even some women, believe that it is okay to verbally attack, threaten, and attempt to discredit a brave woman speaking her truth. This lack of compassion, empathy, and humanity needs to stop. #BelieveSurvivors

Via @huffpostwomen – “I am here today not because I want to be. I am terrified. I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school.” ◾️ Christine Blasey Ford gives her testimony regarding her allegation that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her when they were in high school. Like Anita Hill before her, Blasey chose to wear a blue suit to the hearing today. (📷: Getty)

It takes a lot of courage and strength to speak out about rape, sexual harassment, or incest in a society that does not often believe survivors and usually blames us. Please believe survivors when we speak out.
