"I have never read a story quite like American Handmaidens. While I usually read stories of fantasy or horror, I was surprised how quickly this story drew me in. This is not a gentle read. And while the author skillfully addresses and discusses the heartbreak and betrayal of her childhood and the effect that lasted into adulthood, the reader can still feel that there is some point to the reminiscing. This is not misery porn. It does not exploit or even ask for sympathy, although it is impossible for anyone with a heart to not feel for the author and her sister who had to endure these events. It tells the story, as it happened, for better or for worse. I felt as though the author was leading me by the hand through her life, giving me the occasional hint that there were better things ahead. I wanted to take the journey to see that destination.
There are kind people at different points through this story that remind the author, and us, that not everyone is a threat. We are not doomed. We do not have to accept what has been pushed upon us. We can heal and hope is not dangerous but necessary, if we are to survive. The author takes us through the bad and the good, to teach us a lesson in perseverance and courage. I commend the author, and any survivor of abuse, for her courage to share this story with the world.
While the story does discuss sexual, physical, and mental abuse and might be a trigger to some readers, these events are handled as gently as possible and are not described in graphic language while letting the reader know the events did occur."
What would you do with a terrible secret?
Would you bury it as deeply as it would go
Or talk about it as soon as you were able to anyone willing to listen?
I was the sister who buried it.
Lyn was the sister who refused to.
In the end, it cost her everything.
Some secrets are too terrible to keep.
Excerpt from American Handmaidens
CHAPTER ONE - BOXING DAY
I am excited. My father, a tall, handsome WWII vet who returned home to land a government job, is taking his old boxing gloves out of the top of the hall closet.
He tells my sister and me that he used to box in the army and did pretty well. I am excited because boxing is on TV every Friday in the post-war era, and it looks like fun, dancing around and throwing punches and blocking them.
He gets down the slightly dusty boxes and proceeds to lace up the smaller of the pair on me. I feel powerful just having the leather gloves hanging from my spindly arms.
I am six years old, my younger sister Lyn is three and a half, and looks on with wide cornflower blue eyes. She is beautiful, like a seraphim, with perfect blonde corkscrew curls and dimples.
I am the plain sister, the one strangers never notice. My grandmother on my mother’s side notices this, takes me aside, and tells me not to worry because I am’ distinguished looking.’
My father has finished lacing his own gloves on, and he gives my sister a bell to ring to signal the first round as we square off in opposite corners of the living room.
My entire body thrums with excitement. This is an unprecedented special event. I am particularly impressed that my father makes it clear that he WANTS me to take a shot at him and land some punches.
I am thinking this is very cool.
My father has taken off his shirt. He is a mechanical engineer and works on huge machines at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, D.C.
A gripping psychological thriller…

Who will win his heart, the Lady or one of the alluring Courtesan Dragonshifters?

I have never been a fan of picnics, even as a kid.
Why humans would want to lug perfectly good food outside to share with the ants and flies has always been a puzzle to me. Not to mention sunburn, sweating, lugging heavy ice chests and picnic baskets to the “perfect spot” and the inevitable issue of trash disposal.
No wonder nature hates us.
But I would have to admit that a picnic in the moonlight is an entirely different thing.
Magical. Otherworldly. Mesmerizing.
Especially if your companions are vampires.
