Never Miss a New Post.



As I write this, it is one year ago today, that I left that awful life behind.


I first began writing about my experience with drug addiction and domestic abuse the first few weeks after I left. Sifting through old emails and text messages to try and put all my memories in some sort of order. It was only after advice from my psychologist, who told me that writing is a therapeutic way to process trauma, that I began to think about writing a memoir.


The rest, so they say, is history.

It isn’t easy to stand up in front of the world and talk about your truth, but if doing so can clear an easier path for others to do the same, then it is well worth it.

I am now living peacefully in my hometown with my daughter. We have a new dog; a beautiful black whippet named Simba.

This book has helped me a lot on my journey to healing. it is the first book I have found that covers how to heal from trauma and addiction at the same time.

This book rocked me to the core. I couldn't put it down.

Everyone should read this book! Such an incredible story of survival.

If you have not read From the Other Side yet, you must read it... it is a warning to all women from another woman, courageous enough to share her story to save others.

Deborah, Aust

I finished the book today...what an incredible story. I couldn't get to the end fast enough. It's just so real and honest. An easy read but extremely powerful.

Rusty, Qsld

Read your book and want to thank you for telling your story. I will be making sure my daughters read it.

Jodie, SA

What an amazing true and honest story of survival, determination and courage. Jacquelyn is a true fighter.
