Loving The Addict Is based on my true story. This book contains love, lust, sex, violence , obsession, betrayal, deceit, drug lords, drug and alcohol addiction, police chases, thievery , physical, and emotional abuse, hostage situation, and ultimately my survival .
Born and raised in Chicago Illinois. I am the only child from divorced parents. Growing up I lived a very sheltered life. From the time I was a little girl I was raised in and out of Hair salons mainly because of my mother who was a Nail technician and would take me to work with her . The first dollar I ever made was folding towels for her boss. I still have that dollar to this day. I had many jobs growing up from babysitting , to waitressing / bartending to working in an intimate apparel store. I think the most interesting of all was working for an adult entertainment store selling sex toys and apparel. I became engaged to my first love when I was 17. I left high school in my sophomore year and attended night school . After graduation I followed my dream and went to Cosmetology School where I graduated top of my class. I lead a very exciting life of travel, romance, and working as a manager for a major hair corporation. I am a huge animal lover and domestic violence advocate. I am passionate, creative and very spiritual. I love shoes… “the higher the heel the better”

Being that this was my true story and one that i felt needed to be told, it was far from difficult to write. This book was written to let other women who are being abused, or in an abusive relationship know that they are not alone, That no matter what the circumstance is there is a light at the end of what seems to be the darkest tunnel…
