    Product Description

    Product Description

    The book is a collection of short stories that were written in the only way that I could attempt to purvey the day to day life of a childhood that was spent within the grasps of a nightmare existence that is domestic violence. It was never intended to shock, it is merely a factual actual account of the emotions and strategies that I put into place just to cope with the insanity of my situation.

    It was after a 'quite by chance' meeting of my former primary school head-teacher, at the age of thirty-five, that I realised with some degree of anger and sadness that there was something something very wrong either with teaching as a profession, or with society as a whole.

    “Your family were one of the most loving that I ever come across in forty years of teaching”

    This single statement that would have had the vast majority of us smiling for a fortnight, had hit me with more ferocity than any blow I had received in the ring or from my father. It was at that moment I realised the wall of silence that had surrounded my terrible and turbulent formative years in this world, would need to be shared with the very same people who had failed us so miserably. It seemed almost inconceivable that a family of four children, all at the same school, could be lost in the system for the whole of their childhood.

    I hope you support this project

    More About the Author

    I am a learning mentor from Stoke on Trent in the United Kingdom. I am a poet and author and also occasionally write for local music publications as a critic and reviewer of new music and these have included Stoke Sounds and Stoke Gigs.

    In my youth I was a semi professional dancer and I still have a love for art, music and dance related material. In particular B-Boy culture and graffiti art and I am also a qualified martial arts instructor.

    I have worked in many schools and organisations, both in a professional and volunteer capacity and I have a love for the community spirit that we seem to have sadly lost.

    All of my published books including my first novel 'Echoes Of Pain' and my second book 'At Risk - The full story' are available to buy both ONLINE from this site or via my own website in paperback or Kindle format. You can also purchase my books about local history and poetry.

    I am also a published poet and have my writing in three publications

    I found it hard to put this book down, it was a very good read.
    I dont understand how no-one seems to report child abuse, because thats what it is.
    There's alot of disturbed people out there.
    Very good ending, alot of dignity.

    Unbelievable how a father can be such a bully and get away with it but it seemed quite acceptable . This book was painful to read at times, especially when the father was 'teaching' the son to swim. A good book but not long enough.
