The Unbreakable Child

Today marks the first birthday of AbsoluteWrite's Purgatory thread. Our group of aspiring writers, writers in limbo, writers who bite their nails and writers who are published encompass a wide range of categories, from Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, YA, Historical Fiction, Romance and non-fiction. Writing is a solitary past-time and Purgatory is the perfect place to go when one's in-box is full of crickets, rejections and spam. We cheer each other on, offer sympathy and post dreadful pictures of David Bowie in Labyrinth. Our members are scattered to the four winds but we all meet up, at least once a day, in Purgatory. It's kept me sane.

In the non-fiction category one of our members, Kim Michele Richardson, launched her book 'The Unbreakable Child' at the beginning of April. It is Kim's story and it is a remarkable one, written by an amazing woman. It is a story that needs to be told. If you happen to stop by this humble blog and read my pithy offering for today, make sure you pay a visit to Kim's web site.
