About the Author
10 years ago, I started writing. I was pregnant with my daughter. Writing about things was somewhat of a hobby and this particular subject was a way to deal with the fear of bringing a helpless, innocent child into this world. Coincidentally, Shawn Hornbeck was abducted ten days before my daughter was born, which kicked off this form of expression on such a topic as this. A therapeutic hobby, if you will. Much later, I began taking the details I jotted in the journal and developed a story with them as if I were the character. How would she feel? What were her thoughts? How aware was she of the world around her...the goings-on around her? What would she do to fight and become freed? How would her family feel? What would they be dealing with (police, media, family, friends, etc)? These, and many other questions popped in my head as I began to contemplate the situation and the premise of A Mind Abducted was born.
