More About the Author

Hi,

I am a laid back 70's chick who loves to write and am the bestselling author of ten books.

As Lisa V. Proulx (my real name), I write horror, inspirational, and non-fiction.

As Veronica Moreau, I write erotic romance with a rock and roll edge.

I have been a feature writer and columnist for my local newspaper for 15 years and I have raised Rottweilers for almost 16. I am a former belly dancer who loves to cook, bake and work in my garden. I am also an inspirational speaker.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! ♥

I read many of the 1 and 2 star reviews which referenced the terrible grammar and sentence structure of this book and I thought, 1) honestly, could it be that bad? and 2) even if that bad, would it really affect the read? The answer to both questions - a resounding YES! The grammar and terrible sentence structure, not to mention the disjointed and random paragraphs, made this book painful to read. The story also did not always add up. I found many mistakes that seemed to be errors in chronology. This was a terrible read and the underlying story was not worth wading through the poor writing and story telling. I do like memoirs and I am typically lenient in review and allow for some error and imperfect writing as I feel the memoir author may not be a true writer, but simply someone with an interesting or poignant story to tell. No amount of leniency can justify this disaster of a book.

This book is not for the faint-hearted. It is a story of grinding poverty, of love and hate, of ultimate redemption. It is the saga of a girl who could easily have taken the same road as her mother but instead, through personal strength, managed to break the cycle and create a very different life. I live in the same geographical area of Maryland as the author and I hope to find out if she makes personal appearances at our local libraries and other venues. This book was so compelling that I read it in one long afternoon and hope to read other books by her.

I was consumed by this book. Could not put it down. Kept wondering if it was a true story. Being familiar with Eastern Ky.
(Pikeville) the story really drew me in. Have a lot of questions would love to ask the author. Unfortunately a lot of the hardships the main character experienced were and probably still go on. Since cold industry is disappearing in the the region, no factories or new industries moving, it is experiencing hardships. This was a wonderful story ,did not realize setting for the book would be my families home town.

Wow. Where to start? This is probably the most poorly written book I've ever read. The grammar is horrible, there is no flow to the story. It just jumps from one topic to another without warning. It's as if it was written by an elementary school student who has not yet mastered the art of writing. Was this written without an editor? I noticed in many instances that the writing is contradictory. A situation is described then almost immediately, the story changes and contradicts itself.

I greatly enjoy reading memoirs and usually don't give bad reviews because I realize the story is the author's life but this one is so badly written. I understand that the book was written based on journals left, etc but really. This one could have been so much better!

The book being a true crime story I thought but was an account of someones life instead. I kept waiting for the book to get somewhere. The story was a sob poor me story about someone who had nothing to say about anyone and how she was such a great person. I think it was written to get one final jab at her mother. Her life was as bad as most anyone's back in that time. I guess I could write a book too and cry about how my life was and how wonderful I turned out to be. When I finished the book my first thought was why the heck did I finish it. Just another poor poor pitiful me story and not worth a dime. Should have been free to hear her whine about her poor life. Give me a break. I have always know that if something doesn't sound true then it probably isn't many parts of this story contradicted it's self and I felt were mostly lies to make her point about her poor poor life.
