Thanks Jill. I work for a neuroscientist who delves into the brains of the "disturbed mind" and it has been quite interesting. But public awareness is everything. Anything we can do as writers to educate is a good thing.
Thank you for reaching out. I don't know how I found she writes I think I thought it was a blog. Did you first publish your books here? How did you find out about me; are you on staff or did you notice my title?
Hi Jill and thank you for the warm welcome. Although I am UK based my background is in education and care of looked after children. This has involved working in a similar area to yours. If ever you need any information from a global perspective please feel free to ask.
Thanks Jill. Not sure what I'm doing on this BIG AMERICAN site, but, hey. Interestingly, the ebook I'm about to upload, Jigsaw Pieces, is a rewrite of my Carnegie novel Jigsaw. The theme is child abuse and exploitation. I wrote it in 1999, as a direct result of stuff I'd seen happening to a pupil while teaching. Sadly, nothing has changed!! Despite tighter laws. Shall I give you a headsup when it is on Amazon - I'd reaally like it to get into the right hands - kids who'd find it helpful etc. x
