I speak about the repercussions of silence in order to help women identify the "watershed moment" in their life that informed and transformed the rest of their life so that they acknowledge, accept and ultimately act, to rewrite their narrative, tell their story and become a catalyst for change. After they hear me speak they will learn voice IS their superpower.
2. Stories save lives, if we let Others define us, tell our story, we learn that relationships (love) is transactional, and we micro-manipulate ourselves.
3. We send our "Representative" into the world, hiding our true selves. If we remain silent, we invite in the predators, those who control, dominate, perpetrate violence. We become prey for the narcissists, sociopaths, psychopaths whose sole purpose in life is to drain the life force of their victims.
4. Take-aways: Stories save lives; voice is our superpower; boundaries are not walls, they are "gates" and we get to choose what and who we allow in.
1. The Dark Triad--we recreate what is familiar, "rinse and repeat" relationships, situations, experiences unless we are aware, accept and act.
2. How writing true crime became a journey of self discovery, writing other people's stories when the darkest were my own.
3. I had worked extensively some of the most dangerous minds in the criminal justice system. I had defended them, written about them, studied them, eaten with them, laughed and cried with them, married and divorced them!
4. Because I showed up as the same person each time, I continued to attract the same dangerous man. Take-aways: Identify the pink/red flags, go through the dark to see the dark, made a living "saving killers" how writing about this helped "save" me.

Kerrie Droban is one lady in my life I will never forget. She was there for me at one of the worst times in my life. One thing she would always tell me, was to keep my eyes focused on my future and that my life would get better. It wasn’t easy, but it’s now over a year later and I’m in such a better place now than I’ve ever been before. Thank you Kerrie, for taking such good care of me and my kids!
