I write about characters who are going through some intense emotional journeys, many of them from psychological abuse, wartime trauma, and physical trauma. For those going through similar journeys, never give up. I promise you, there is life beyond abuse and trauma.
If you want to find supportive sites to help deal with issues triggered as you read, or have lingering issues you still want to deal with and overcome, here are some places you can go for support and advice. They're also wonderful places for you to support financially, if you're able to, so they can continue the good work they do. Throughout this year, as I am able, I plan to contribute to each of these Causes.
As I am touched by additional causes related to characters in my books, I'll share them here. I know from the e-mails and private messages I receive from readers that my books often draw in readers who have suffered similarly in their pasts, so I hope they can find new resources at these sites to help them continue on their journey to healing. I am sure there are many other sites that help, but these are the ones that had the greatest impact on me at this time.
