About Lavinia Thompson

I am a hippie who is just discovering what life really is. My heart is entrenched in novel writing. I am pursuing a dream of being a full-time novelist. It’s the beginning of a journey that I have always dreamed of. I have risen from a dark childhood of domestic violence. I faced that monster in my closet and am now writing about it. I watched my mother be tortured for almost ten years. I stood before the remnants of the house her ex burned down in a drunken rage. I lived with the aftermaths and the damage it did in the years that followed. Now, I am chasing dreams and living my life to the fullest. Through my writing I want to be an advocate against domestic violence and child abuse, to speak out and be a voice.

Review by: Tess Calderbank on Oct. 22, 2011 :
The author had a way with words that had me on the edge of my seat wanting to read more. I think everyone should read this book even if they don't like poetry. There are stories within her poetry and they give you a sense of how hard it must be for domestic abused victims. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
