I have been on hiatus from my blog (and WordPress in general) for the past week but for a good reason:

I finalized and published my first book to Amazon!– Escaping the Boy: My Life with a Sociopath. I hope all of my dedicated blog readers, friends, and family will get a chance to review and share my story.

A little about the cover illustration…
I took this photograph (below) in October 2008 while wandering the avenues of Père Lachaise Cemetery (French: Cimetière du Père-Lachaise). Although I was with someone, I was alone. I was drawn to Eva, as I affectionately refer to her, and saddened by her. Is she Eve? Is she every woman caught between good and evil? She was definitely me on that chilly, fall morning nearly four years ago. I chose her for my cover illustration because I think she was always intended to be front-and-center.
