About My Books

I have authored three books. In 2014 I published FALLOUT: A Survivor Talks to Incest Offenders (And Others), a memoir with bibliographical references. My second book, TIME WRINKLES, was published in July of 2015. My third book, SHATTERED BOUNDARIES, was published in September of 2015.

     Turtle Crossing the Road

Turtle, do you know that you cause

someone like me to cringe and pause

in my journey to work or play

on a formerly happy day?

in my mirror I cannot spot

if you made it or did you not.

Do you really care if you should meet

your end of days while in the street?

Of course he does, I  scold myself,

chastened by my timid stealth.

Turn around and go back, I tout,

and help the little feller out.

But no, I go and never know.

Why should I worry myself so?

Down deep I see that he is me,

both risking death if we are free.


                                THE FANTASY NOVEL:

                                  SHATTERED BOUNDARIES

She floated out the window…

Reality reasserts itself as an adventurous young woman accidentally tests the limits and find herself a world away from the man she loves.

Should she wait for another incarnation to re-connect with him or attempt the unthinkable? If she follows her heart, what will that do to the chaos she has already made of her life?

    I have posted reflections on Fallout, here http://wp.me/p3ia4v-663 but with further reading I am finding The Trauma Bond most enlightening both professionally and on a personal level. As I continue reading, I will share more reflections but mostly it is so refreshing to read more research since my only resource in the 80’s I found was Finkelhor. It is a slow read as I also an reflecting on my past. Thank you for being so generous in writing this book, Nan. Oliana aka Cheryl-Lynn

        No but perhaps it has to be approved I’ll check it out when I get here home. I read your book on my kindle. Sometimes on mi Ipad or on my iPhone but fir some me reason each one dies not update my last page so I’ve been re-reading some pages a few times over and it interests me each time Have you read any of Tory Hayden’s books. I’ve leaned a lot from her phenomenal approach with sexually abused youths

        I just checked and did not have any comments to approve…I think WordPress was pulling your leg (chuckles)

        Apparently I replied to you on someone else’s post. They must be puzzled. I said I think I just punched the wrong key. Thanks for you problem-solving attempt.

    Good! Cheryl-Lynn. Don’t bother checking. I didn’t write too much, I think. I must have pushed the wrong key at the wrong time. Tonight on d’Verse it took me about five different puzzles before I earned acceptance of being a person, not a robot. Re Tory Hayden’s books, they sound interesting and I’ll try and look him (her?) up. Right now I’m 81 and still trying to clean out my stuff. For about a year I offered all the articles I copied for free and postage-free to anyone and ended up throwing them away. The O.U. library agreed to take the books off my hands. So difficult to connect with the right person at the right time.
