The Journey of I & I is a raw yet powerful account of a tragic and horrendous childhood endured by Liz, an ordinary child growing up in extraordinary circumstances. Readers are taken on a journey of unfathomable lows and motivating highs as they find themselves turning the pages wanting to simultaneously help the main character, Liz, wanting to rescue her, embrace her, cry and laugh with her. It is primarily a tale of survival and determination as the Author invites readers to accompany Liz on her life's journey. Despite its initial subject matter of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence, it is a tale also interspersed with humour and laugh out loud moments. It is a story of the dynamics of her relationships at every turn of her life. Its a story of chaos and drama and as one reader wrote: 'I read a story and I was there. I read a story of sadness, hope and of courage and laughter and I was there. I read of horror and betrayal and I was there'. It is a journey of mental, physical, emotional and spiritual healing achieved through a returned journey re-commencing from her birth. It is a story that had to be written and told in order for Liz, the main character, to validate and make sense of her dramatic emergence into this world and of her life. A story that was inspired by her courage to retrace her steps back into horrific darkness and pain. It is ultimately a story that will help and inspire others who suffered or suffering in similar circumstances. It is a story of HOPE. “Powerful and Inspirational are definitely words that describe both you as an individual and as a writer. I will be first in line to buy your book and to have it signed personally by you. I could not be more proud of you. I have always said that you are the most inspirational and talented person with words and much more and I am truly grateful for any time I get to speak with you and hear your words. I am so glad and happy that your words will be read by so many now.” – R.W. – Army Military Employee “Your style of writing is extremely powerful and inspiring.
