Would you recognize a stalker in your life? Perhaps, not.
In my novel The Artist’s Paradise, Angie Rhodes fell under the spell of an abuser. She unknowingly lost her freedom, her self-confidence, and close relationships’ while her charming abuser worked his magic.
In my second novel, Whispers in the Wind, Jeopardy Mills becomes entangled with the threat of a Stalker. Often, our view of evil prevents us from recognizing the warning signals. We prepare for tornadoes, floods, ice storms, and other natural disasters. The CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS), found that 1 in 6 women and 1 in 19 men have been stalked during their lifetime. Prepare yourself, now.
