" Agreat writer can describe something and allow the reader to experienceit. Fulks is a great writer."~Reader's Favorite reviewer Anne Boling (5 stars)

"My Prison withoutBars" is well-written and gives a good look into the lives of those
whohave been sexually attacked
..."~Reader's Favorite reviewer Alice DiNizo (5 stars)

trusts the reader enough to lay everything out on the table... ifreaders can make it through, they'll likely come away changed and perhaps witha sharper perspective on the terrible long-term effects of child abuse.
Fulks weaves a compelling narrative with commanding prose...A detailed,deftly told narrative that will shock even the stoutest readers. ~KirkusReview

From the Author

Have you ever lived with a shameful secret? Afraid that someone orsomething would 'rat' you out...expose your demons for the entire worldto see? Have you ever been in so much darkness that you didn't know howto find the light?

If so, then you'll no doubt identify with Taylor's story; a saga much like Sapphire's Push, that became the Academy Award-winning movie, Precious.
 My Prison Without Bars is a poignant, yet dark account of one woman's struggle to find "normal," as well as light and hope along her journey.

I wrote this novel in first person, from the mind, body, and heart of achild. I didn't want to shock or be grotesque...I wanted people to truly know the permanent damage that is inflicted, to know the depths of fear and self-loathing, and to really feel through the experiences of an abused child.

My goal was to exorcise my demons, gain some sense of self-esteem, healmyself, and finally tell my dirty little secret with full disclosure,while giving the reader full access to my heart. Oddly, I didn't findthe outcomes I expected...absolution, understanding, andself-forgiveness. But I did find something I didn't expect...Acceptance.

My life is what it is. My experiences happened in the past. I don't livethere anymore. I can choose to be angry and ashamed for the rest of mylife, or I can accept my life for what it's been, what it is now, andmove toward the light...and who knows, maybe help someone else along the way. Hence, my mission statement: The rest of my life will be the bestof my life. It's not about my's about the journey thatgets me there.
