The Women of Strength Diaries

I write stories that I hope will have an impact on readers. Stories of real life. Stories that show consequences. Stories that will hopefully touch my readers.
#1: Trapped in an Abusive Relationship

A sobering statistic:
  One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime
Amy Reynolds thought she had a great boyfriend, until one by one all her freedoms began to disappear.  When her job is threatened, Amy decides it’s time to become more independent. But that’s not how her boyfriend Brad feels.  He’s likes things the way they are and will go to any length to keep it that way.


#2: The Eyes That Haunt Me
One hot September afternoon, Annie Henderson's life changed forever. That was the day she was raped. Nine months later, she gave up the daughter she'd conceived on that terrible day. Forging a new life was difficult, but Annie had a successful military career and then had a family.  Life was good, until the daughter she gave up reenters her life, and threatens to ruin it forever.

#3 The Hoarder's Daughter
After her father's death, Dana Morrison noticed that her mother’s house was becoming cluttered. First she saved grocery bags, then newspapers, and empty boxes. In no time flat, her house was filled with junk, junk, and more junk! Dana made the mistake of cleaning house, but that just made matters worse when her mother decided that her trash was more valuable to her than her daughter.

#4: Mom Can't Live Alone Anymore

Kathy Wilson was a loving daughter and wanted to do the right thing when it became apparent that her mother wasn’t able to take care of herself any more.  But getting her mom into assisted living became a nightmare--and that was just the beginning of her troubles.

 #5: Those She Left Behind
When Kathryn Garner took her life, she could not have known the devastation she would unleash for her family, friends, and the people she came into contact with every day. She was hurting, but she did she have any clue as to the pain her ultimate solution would cause others?

Dealing with the aftermath of suicide is difficult for family, friends, and even people who knew the deceased in everyday situations. That one desperate act unravels so many lives. Sometimes it helps to know that there are others going through the same kind of turmoil as Those She Left Behind.


#6 Married In Haste

Jennifer had always been a wallflower, so when Mike Palmer flatters her—and asks her out—she feels on top of the world. But Mike's a sports nut, and soon Jennifer feels like she's playing second fiddle to every sport televised. Her ultimatum has Mike reconsidering their relationship. Soon their dates are fun and fulfilling. Without telling a soul they elope, and then Jennifer’s problems really begin when she discovers the man she thought she’d known is almost a complete stranger.
