Listen as Scott Pitney interviews the author of the newly released book, Behind Closed Doors (Book 1 of The Awakening Series) about growing up and surviving a childhood of sexual abuse.
Too often, families appear outwardly normal while hiding dark secrets. Behind Closed Doors unveils a true-life journey of child sexual abuse, breaking the silence once and for all, and inspiring others to do the same. Told in a narrative that spans generations, the novel reveals the insidious nature of pedophilia and the challenge to find self-worth, self-love, and a life of dignity after unspeakable betrayal.
From the author: “My purpose in writing Behind Closed Doors and the sequel Journey to the Heart is to provide aftercare, healing, and to touch the reader’s heart. We are not alone — I know many people who have experienced similar abuse, and I’ve been honest and blunt in addressing the humiliation and pain. By sharing this story, I hope people will be able to process and release their feelings, and be awakened to the joy and relief that comes from healing.”
