Lone Star Novellas

The following subpages within are collections of my personal writings based on my experiences growing up in Southeast Texas. Many people have demanded, requested, or passive aggressively suggested that I should not share the truths of my history. Speaking out as I do has cost me many beloved family members, a cherished individual or two, and a handful of fair weather friends along the way. However until there exists a world absent of physical, mental, and spiritual abuse, until not one person has been traumatized by sexual assault, until every human being is free from discrimination and inequality then I will continue to speak out against such atrocities. I can only hope that through my testimony others who have experienced similar abuse will know they are not alone and that it does get better.
