Good News on My Memoir

In December 2010 The River of Forgetting—A Memoir of Healing from Sexual Abuse will be published by Booksmyth Press. I’ve been working on this book for nine years now, and I am so excited about getting it out there!

Despite the subject matter, this is a story of hope and healing. I have been fortunate to have an amazing therapist, supportive friends, and creative resources such as writing and dance/movement. In the course of the book, I come to see my life very differently.

In one scene, my therapist watches me writhe on the floor, overwhelmed by physical flashbacks, but in the next minute I crawl over to where she is sitting and she holds me safe and warm. Back and forth between trauma and trust, until I really get it that I have grown past the ugliness and into a beautiful life.
