Writing for me is a catharsis. It is a means to channel the pent-up anger, frustration, humiliation and shame, which I have endured for 19 years. The book which I am writing, "This Far by Faith: Racism, Misogyny, Police Brutality, Corruption and the Mafia," is a testament to the strength of women everywhere who are determined not to allow themselves to be defeated or destroyed by a male dominated society. I write because I want my voice to be heard! I write for those women who want their stories to be told, but who have neither the means nor the opportunity to speak for themselves. I write to instill within other women the courage to keep fighting to realize their goals and dreams regardless of the obstacles or setbacks they encounter along the way. --Elaine
