Facing the Beast is a story of the mind depicting grief, mental illness, and the effects of child sexual abuse.
How does the mind continue to unravel after enduring years of abuse as a child? How does one try to cope with that leftover trauma along with added unresolved grief? Written in a snarky collection of thirty poems, some of which are simple illustrations, readers have a chance to get inside the author’s head and witness a damaged woman’s struggle to overcome these tragic experiences.
This chapbook brings forth difficult and uncomfortable subjects to the table, with just the right hint of sarcasm and dark humor.
Targeted Age Group:: 20-30
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My battle with depression and PTSD was a huge inspiration. This book served as a coping mechanism and a release for years of withheld sexual trauma. I wanted this book to serve as a release for readers as well, helping them face their own demons. If anything, it can at least help them realize that they are not alone.
