Carin CaseyDOWNSIZEMy first childhood memory was of my mother screaming hysterically while she beat me in the head with her fists. My little sister watched, terrified. My father sat in the other room and did nothing. This scene repeated many times in my early years.

Years later, while depressed over yet another failed relationship, I met an attractive, charismatic man. He had qualities like my mother: he could be intensely affectionate and loving one minute; then suddenly, without any known cause, he became cruel and abusive.

I was helplessly drawn to him, even when he tried to kill me. I forgave him, only to suffer through various tortures for another year. I desperately prayed for God to give me strength, to deliver me from this hell. And God did provide a way for my escape.

It was only by the Grace of God that I survived that toxic and life-threatening situation.  Recovery has taken years; it’s an on-going process. I am thankful for each moment I have without domestic violence.

Filled with gratitude, I am devoted to bringing domestic violence awareness to our men and women, and how it impacts individuals’ everyday life. I encourage society’s compassion for these victims, and promote pathways toward their peace and stability, as well as the process of recovery – spiritually, emotionally, and financially.

I believe a person is overcoming their life of domestic violence when they’ve:

  1. Turned their life around;
  2. Safely left the toxic and dangerous environment;
  3. Believe, have faith better days will come – they deserve better days;
  4. Become filled with gratitude and thankfulness each day; and
  5. Forgiven those who were abusive (from a safe distance) and those who were indifferent.

“My Dear Rosa Jean” is a fictional eye-opener how traumatic interactions with someone with emotional and mental issues can impact others. Those affected also relive it through every facet of their life. It’s my desire to assist others to recognize signs of abusive behavior, overcome domestic violence/ traumatic situations, and to work on their healing.

“My Dear Rosa Jean” is a tool to help folks take back their lives. It helps victims who are stuck in pain, helplessness, and hopelessness. I want family and friends to understand, and bystanders to be equipped with ways they can assist.

“Mystery at Candice Bay” is in a seemingly peaceful suburban community where teenagers Casey and Janie are caught up in a series of mysterious and violent events, beginning with the sudden disappearance of their friend and classmate. They try to understand why bad things happen, while knowing God will bring them through it.
