I'm so happy you chose to visit my website. I wrote my first novel " The Truth Behind the Walls" to bring an awareness of the affect that domestic violence has on children within households in which domestic violence occurs. This silent crime directly affects at least 30% of women at some point in life.

After witnessing my mother suffer at the hands of my abusive father, I am committed to combatting abuse. Whether through my novels or public speaking, I strive to help all face the reality of domestic violence in our nation.

Domestic violence in this country is at a crisis level and the biggest group of victims, and the most innocent of these victims, are the children.

As a surviving child – and only one of many silent victims, I am stepping outside of the box only to speak from the child’s perspective against this evil behavior I know all too well. It is a vicious self-centered cycle of behaviors mainly among adults which ultimately repeats itself within the family unit and consequently destroys the lives of innocent children.


Tara's Trial and Isolation






Based on a 2009 Survey from the Office of Juvenile Justice Department Prevention:

  • 60% of kids surveyed in 2009 were exposed to violence in the past year, either directly or indirectly.
  • Most of the kids surveyed were witness to violent acts against a family member. More than 1 in 10 were injured as a result.
  • More than 4 in 10 kids surveyed stated violence in their home causes them to become angry and volatile with their peers.
