Drew Brett


I am an adult survivor of child abuse as a member of a family with pathologic multi-generational dysfunction. Much of it rooted in severe and persistent emotional, psychological abuse, mental cruelty and domestic violence. By sharing my personal story I hope to raise awareness of narcissistic abuse within a family unit. There are many people and families, especially children, that suffer in complete silence and that shouldn't be the case if people just pay attention to those close to them.

By sharing my story of working to heal my inner child's spirit and soul through self discovery and empowerment I hope it serves to assist others along their own path. With help, it is possible to pick up the pieces of a childhood shattered by abuse and find a fulfilling life.

It is my intention to donate a portion of any money made from the sale of the book to domestic abuse/violence and childrens' charities.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing as a young adult as a means to sort out the feelings and emotions associated with growing up in a family with deeply pathologic issues of dysfunction and abuse. As a child I wasn't allowed feelings; was told what to feel, how to feel, what to think by two very sick and narcissistic people. It was brainwashing in its most basic form. Writing has allowed me a safe outlet to rebuild and heal my spirit and sense of self. In short, writing has given me a voice.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
As a vehicle to help others, to inspire people to reach for their potential, to see the good in themselves and to see all that they have to offer this world. You don't have to be held back or constrained by your past, whatever it is, that we all have inner strength of spirit to reach for great things and help each other while doing so.
