Thank you, dear readers, for your encouragement. I feel like I have succeeded as a writer if I have entertained, inspired, and motivated you. I am grateful for your support and positive reinforcement; and I promise to work very hard to make certain you are never disappointed.
I’m a firm believer that life has a purpose. You may have already found your reason for being here, but others are still searching. Regardless of our individual reasons for being on this beautiful planet called “Earth”, there is joy in living. Readers, your uniqueness, inspires me to write.
The world is not perfect. There is a raging battle between good and evil. I like to think that most people are good, yet evil is a very powerful force—and it seems to get the upper hand at times. However, the heroes in my stories—our stories—are not quitters. They sacrifice everything to help others. You will be encouraged by them—and see yourself in them. They take a stand for good even though the odds are overwhelmingly stacked against them. And if necessary, they will offer the ultimate of sacrifices–themselves—for the greater good.
Now, please let me share my humble beginnings as an author—I want to show you where my allegiance lies, and why writing about it is so important to me.
I write . . . for the Victims
The first novel I ever wrote was for the victims. This is about true crime and provides a message of hope for those who are suffering. This series was not intended to entertain; its purpose was to inform. You see, I know the family that became the victims of these horrendous crimes mentioned throughout the series. The story involves a frightening nineteen-year journey that has never ended. A family of four had everything to live for. They were on top of the world literally. Suddenly that changed in the blink of an eye.
These four people became victims of crimes you could have never imagined. The worst part of the whole ordeal was that they received no help from a single soul. What affected me the most was I witnessed the look in those children’s eyes as they begged an officer of the law for help. He laughed and walked away. Now you understand why I became a writer. Law enforcement turned a deaf ear as others kept their secrets while this family suffered. Nevertheless, this family refused to give up. Police reports were filed in three states along with complaints to the FBI in two of those states and its headquarters inWashingtonDC. Even after all this, the crimes continued.
When this problem began, two members of this family were only children – ages six and twelve. Their lives were literally destroyed by crooked law enforcement, dishonest judges, and a host of people who took bribes to remain quiet as others suffered. But this family never gave up—they simply refused to be quitters. But these victims did not simply survive—they thrived.
The twelve-year-old is now thirty-one and has obtained a PhD. She is a college professor. The six-year-old is now twenty-four and a school teacher. Fittingly, she was chosen as “Rookie Teacher of the Year”. However, it has not always been easy for them. They have been harassed by those who want to make their lives miserable. It seems there is plenty of scum out there who are willing if the price is right. The parents are now much older and should have been able to retire comfortably long ago. However, crooks are not quitters either – just dumb and mean. I’m convinced this family has a purpose in life: if nothing else, to be an example to others. That is why I have written the series of for the Victims.
Before you read these novels, I must warn you. Those were my first creations, and at the time I was overwhelmed by the crimes being committed against these two young children. It shows in my writing style, and the story has affected others in the same way. After reading them, many became so angry with the Postal Service and their law enforcement division that they did not even pick up their mail for days.
The whole world needs to know this: no matter how small of a part one person plays in crimes or hatred, that person bears the guilt of perpetuating pain and injustice that ruins lives. The law recognizes this—those who ignore or even slightly contribute to these crimes are under racketeering laws—which can carry the penalty of federal prison.
Survivors know, prison sentences do not redeem lost years of hope, dreams, and promise. Survivors, however, are comforted by knowing they are not alone. The victims in my novels—who are still thriving today—never gave up hope. So, if you are suffering, please know that you are not alone. Draw on the strength of others who have endured hardships and prevailed. for the Victims was written to restore faith in mankind, provide hope for the weary, and encourage all those who need it—especially for survivors.
In closing, I would like to say there is a reason for our nation’s crisis; and it is explained in vivid detail in the final book of this series. You will certainly be surprised to learn how it all began—which is with the strength of survivors, portrayed in for the Victims.
