Taylor-Made Thoughts & Doodles

Welcome to my humble site...

I'm a wife, a mother, a healer, a loud and enthusiastic sports fan, an ATM, a domestic CEO, and now, a passionate writer.

I am relatively new to the world of writing. As a CRNFA, Certified RN First Assistant, specializing in Open Heart Surgery, I'm far from my comfort zone in the publishing arena. However, as an avid storyteller, I am loving (for the most part) this new journey...this new medium for sharing my stories. I am an enthusiastic sports fan, former women's softball coach, lover of English gardening, and all things to do with coffee.

MY PRISON WITHOUT BARS: THE JOURNEY OF A DAMAGED WOMAN TO SOMEPLACE NORMAL is a novel based on a true story...Taylor’s story.

My Prison Without Bars is a courageous and harrowing journey through the
catacombs of hell, from the mind and voice of a little girl living with her
own monster underneath her bed. Written in first person, this novel is not a
memoir but more psychological thriller, based on a true story, chronicling
one woman's attempt to claw her way out of the darkness of child sexual
abuse, while struggling to find normal, in a not-so-normal world.

It is poignant, dark and graphic; not for the faint of heart.

Have you ever lived with a shameful secret? Afraid that someone or
something would 'rat' you out...expose your demons for the entire world to
see? Have you ever been in so much darkness that you didn't know how to find
the light? If so, then readers will no doubt identify
with my story; a saga much like Sapphire's Push, that became the Academy
Award-Winning movie, PRECIOUS.

*WARNING* THIS NOVEL IS GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING. IT MAY TRIGGER CSA VICTIMS.
IT IS INTENDED FOR 18+ READERS
