The True Story and My Writing Journey


Shattered Innocence Story


First of all, my thanks goes out to Elaine Marie Carnegie-Padgett for allowing me to do this feature on her blog and explain a little about my story.


Hi everyone, my story Shattered Innocence is meant to help those who have been abused by breaking the silence. Educating the public about what can go on in child abuse. Be aware of the signs.


This is my story of abuse and being a victim most my life until I became a survivor. And what a profound effect it had on my life. Carrying on into abusive relationships and beyond. It is my hope to have it published into a book that will help many more people.


We need to break the silence and the cycle of abuse. My abuse directly related to me being childless and has had a profound effect on my entire life. I am sixty-five years now and I have a lung disease. While it is moving slowly it could get worse at any time. This is on my bucket list of things to do!


I often would escape into my fantasy world of poetry by transporting to a different place. From a very young age my life was being controlled by men and mixing up my interpretation of them overall.


The story is my autobiography and memoir. One chapter a week will be published by BIZCATALST 360, a site I am a featured writer on. I will be posting it on my profile page and in different groups.


There will be links for the chapters. Chapters One and Two are out already so if you haven’t caught it yet be sure and check it out.


Chapter Three was a very hard chapter to write and very detailed. I’m putting a TRIGGER WARNING ON THAT CHAPTER and it will be out next week.


Excerpt from my story SHATTERED INNOCENCE:

“I could barely look anyone in the eyes. I just felt like crawling down into a deep dark hole and burying myself in it.”

I read another post you just published about Alan making a video & reading poems. So beautiful. I'm so sorry about your difficult childhood. I think many from our generation things we'd never do ourselves with our children. Hugs.

Wishing you all the best with that memoir. As I think you know, I'm working on one also. Some chapters are emotionally difficult to write. So I relate. Take care.
