About My Book

A Rose Blooms Among the Thorns
The story of a woman's journey from domestic abuse – through healing – to forgiveness
The book, A Rose Blooms Among the Thorns, came into existence after many years.
I had an old boot box that I carried around for probably thirty years. Inside of this boot box were notes about this story. These notes were written on notebook paper, index cards, and even on napkins from restaurants.
 Whatever paper I had before me when an idea came is what I wrote it down on.
Every time I placed a note in the box, I would say, “someday you will get written.” After about thirty years someday arrived. Before the first word was typed, I fasted and prayed. The reason I did this was because writing this book would take me on a destination to a place I didn't want to visit. The place I would be journeying to was my past.
With much fasting, praying and crying the book came together. Even though the book is written as a work of fiction, it contains many truths and facts. All though this is my story, I wrote it hoping that many women who have gone through domestic abuse will maybe relate to the story.
My hope is that they would understand there is a life after domestic abuse. There are lives and dreams obtainable for them. And no, it won't be easy but it is possible to have a live free of domestic abuse.
