Why I Wrote Conflicting Hearts: Conflicting Hearts is my story of childhood abuse set in a fictional world. Why would I write such a book exposing my past? Blame it on all the best sellers regarding women who are enjoying kinky sex at the hands of dominant men. The book is not meant to judge those who enjoy that path. Rather it is an eye opening journey into the mind of a woman who suffers from masochist tendencies. The selfish act of childhood abuse has a profound effect upon the mind of a little girl. As a result of the trauma, she grows into a woman who struggles with a variety of painful issues and poor relationships.
About the Author:
Since I was a young child, I've wanted to write. The drive has always been there in my soul, but the circumstances have not. Due to my background I made poor choices in relationships, entertained a low-self esteem, surrounded by fear of rejection. When I finally found the courage, I began writing late in life. My usual genre is historical fiction and historical romance. I have fifteen fiction novels.

I live in the Portland, Oregon area with a pesky cat who refuses to let me sleep in, enjoy traveling to England, researching my English ancestry, and creating stories.
Unfortunately, I never found the Ian Richards of my life.
