Fought and Freed
About the Book
With a family pulled apart and a gang war on the horizon, Maddy must fight for not only her freedom, but the future of her family.
After enduring a devastating betrayal, Maddy emerges from rehab broken and unsure if she can trust her own mind after the hallucinations she experienced under Mike's control. Her chosen family offers little solace as tempers flare, secrets are kept, and distance grows between them. Maddy's struggles increase with Grant, a new friend from rehab, putting her own health at risk.
Life becomes more chaotic as Mike resurfaces, threatening Maddy's progress. Simultaneously, a shocking revelation from Skylar's ex jeopardizes their envisioned future. Maddy desperately needs her chosen family's support, but their own battles push them apart.
Maddy's resilience faces a test as she prioritizes her well-being and faces issues of trust, self-discovery, and finding love and happiness. Can she heal her fractured family bonds or will the relentless conflict between her and Mike destroy everyone she holds dear?
About the Author
I have always had a deep love of reading since I was a child. My mother used to read to us every night before we went to sleep, and to this day, I still read every night.
My love of reading turned into ideas bouncing around in my head for years. In tenth grade we were asked to write a story or a poem for our English class. I wrote the first chapter of a story called Swift Wing. The rest of year, she encouraged me to finish the story and told me that one day she would see my work in print.
I filled many notebooks over the years but never finished them. I knew how hard it was to get a publisher to publish my stories.
When I turned forty—call it a midlife crisis, I don’t know—I decided it was time. I was going to do this. I wanted to write a book.
So, here we are, with my book in your hands. I hope you enjoyed reading it.
