Smashwords Interview

Why did you write this book?
Because we need to begin a conversation about those support people who need to acknowledged and supported in order to be able to acknowledge and support well those who have been victimized and abused in this manner. It's like what they tell you in the airplane, A mother;s natural inclination is to put the mask on the child first but you are instructed to put the air mask on yourself first, so that you will be in a position to help your child. So many mothers are so damaged themselves, they are not truly in a position to help their child.
What has been your biggest challenge or obstacle?
Doing it, putting my derriere in the chair and starting to type, sharing the story, opening yourself up for ridicule and judgment of others. The "Monday morning quarterbacks," that would never let that happen to their child, and simply knowing your daughter was hurt, and you did not prevent it is hard enough, let alone having other people who don't know you, your daughter or your situation judge you.
