Getting ready to work on “Awakened” and I decided to clean some of the stuff taking up space on my computer. One of things I came across was a letter I wrote to my 17 year old self. I couldn’t remember exactly why I wrote this, but I read through it anyway. As I did, I thought back on some of the things I talked about and the biggest thing I told my younger self. I told myself I wasn’t alone because back then I felt like it. And this is a feeling I know I need to present in my book. If you’ve read “Dark Road Punished” (currently unavailable for purchase), you may have an idea why I mention this. Part of the story in “Awakened” is that Bella gets raped. If you have suffered this type of horrible attack, then I suspect you’ll understand how lonely you can feel afterward. I’m not saying I personally have experienced rape, at least not according to legal definitions, but I have been taken advantage of and convinced to do things I didn’t want to do. Needless to say, this has left me in a position where I wrestled with how much to show of the rape in the book. It took me a while, but I finally decided. And hopefully, despite the tragedy that occurs, the one thing I want to leave readers feeling, you are not alone.
