Could this book be triggering to victims and survivors? Here's what one reader had to say:
"Your book does hook into memories, thoughts and feelings. However, it does it in a good way. To me, your book is cathartic, not damaging. Your book is not triggering, except in a good way. Your book has triggered me into revisiting past trauma. However, it has done it in such a way that I have visited the past trauma, only to kick the **** out of it! Your book has enabled me to address the trauma, attack the trauma, destroy the trauma and move on."
Deborah knows how easily people can switch moods; her pencil case is stuffed with notes on the devastating consequences. She thought leaving home would be the beginning of a brighter future, a chance to do something worthwhile with her life. But somehow the past was determined to follow her, lead her into places more terrifying than she'd known.
The move to London only started another chapter paved with pain and lies, and Golden Girl, cousin Jen, made sure she wasn't there when life tripped her up.
Now she's homeless, a recovering alcoholic, under the temporary wing of Rainbows End, always fighting the cold, and her nerves. Only the truth can give her peace and justice now.
A mystery unsolved
A life shattered
A heart broken
A soul lost
A spirit that will never give in
This is Debs' story,
written for the young people,
the ones who still stand a chance.

Joining a writers' group a few years ago helped me refine my story telling technique. The feedback I received was invaluable and led to the publication of Releasing the demon in literary e-zine halfwaydownthestairs.net. Later on, Angels on Platform 1 was published by Litro.co.uk. Supernatural themes often creep into my stories, tied in with the exploration of alternate realities and systems of consciousness, and fragmentation of the psyche caused by severe trauma.
