" Naught is nothing if not heroic, and he is anything but ordinary. " - Pamela Milam Therapist & Author

From the Author
The Virgin Journals dedication ... " This book is for people who learn about themselves by reading about others ... May my stories serve a purpose for you "
Author Introduction, Page #1 ... " This book would be rated R or worse by any respectable authority "
I wrote The Virgin Journals as a personal venture, late night self-help therapy if you will, but I am releasing it with the intent that mature readers will be able to enjoy some of the pieces written, learn from some of the pieces and ultimately want to be more open with themselves!
