Hi my name is Annette. I am a Author/Nurse in Alabama. I have been a Nurse for 23 years. I have been writing for 10 years about the ups and downs of life. I also blog for websites about the issues that we are facing in the world. Domestic Violence The Disease, The Sara Farraday Story: Consist of the horrific ordeals suffered by 4 different women. Their ture stories were combined to form a ficticious character by the name of Sara Farraday. The Nightmare of Sara Farraday, is a continuation of my first book. This mystery, filled with suspense, will definitely have you on the edge of your seat. My third book: A Trio of Deceit: is an incredible cat and mouse murder mystery, with tablespoon of paranormal activity. I also plan on publishing 3 books in the year 2015. My goal in life is to help others. Either through Nursing or writing, I am happy knowing that I made a difference in someone's life. I don't proclaim to be the next, "Danielle Steel or Nora Roberts."
Just seeing the smile on someone's face when I sign one of my books, let's me know, that I have touched someone heart, and I have made a difference in their life. That's what it's all about at the end of the day.

The Nightmare of Sara Farraday is a fictionalized account based on true events.
While the focus of the story is on domestic abuse, the spectrum of criminal behavior perpetrated on women and children was horrific. Few seem to escape domestic violence. It is in my family, so I had a personal interest in reading the story.
The author, Annette Reid, has created a very emotional story. It is so full of terrible events, it made me dizzy. Rape, murder, physical and mental abuse, alcohol abuse, lying, wrongful incarceration, stalking, harassment, attempted murder, family secrets, verbal abuse, malicious rumor-mongering, incest, mental illness and more.
Reid moves swiftly from one event to the next in Sara Farraday's life. While Sara supposedly found a better life, I was still waiting for the other shoe to drop and find Sara back in an abusive relationship.
The simple statistic that 1 in 4 women experience domestic violence should scream "Our society needs to change." Plus, this is a global epidemic, women the world over suffer at the hands of men and women.
I see potential in Reid's writing. Her style is clean and direct.
One regret I had was I had hoped the author would have provided a resource page with links to domestic violence information and assistance websites.
