About the Author

I have been in receipt of trauma counselling since 1999 on a daily basis,at times speaking till the early hours of the morning. Support from my trauma Counsellor helps me to come to terms with accepting that what has happened to me cannot now be changed. I cannot ever forgive those who had a vicarious liability to look after me and failed. As a result of being locked away for some years all because we were poor has brought certain limitations to my day to day life. Writing is a form of therapy and allows me to be free to be the person that I want to be, and should have been my birthright. Through writing I can reach out to others who may have had such an unfortunate experience as myself . Daily flashbacks can be upsetting and I fill my life with things to do so as to block them out. Day to day life can be exhausting and coping mechanisms that I learnt in order to survive have not helped me in the outside world. God help all fellow survivors and perhaps one day Ireland will accept the terrible price we paid. Shame on all you right thinking residents in Ireland to allow the government and Catholic Church to ignore harm done to me and many others who are either dead or too ill to tell their story. Thanks to Chipmunkapublishing I have been able to confront my demons and a Big Thank you to Reatha my trauma counsellor without her I would not be here today writing about my stolen life.

Book Extract

1970 Was for Hillary an interesting time
Meeting Bill who looked handsome indeed
Overhearing a conversation about melons one day
Hillary began to take heed
Who is this man and from where does he come?
Questions they rang out one by one
Soon her friends they did inform
And Bill he did perform
In a way that gave her `dizzy spells`
Hillary and Bill they this whole page I could fill
With their efforts to restore fairness and justice
This world would see what they were going to be
They certainly knew how to cut mustard
Bill noticed Hillary`s patterned skirt
She advised it was made by her mother
Bill fell for Hillary her eyes shone like the stars
Since then his heart has not been with another
Hillary knows that meeting up was their fate
They walked and talked and had such a time
This was on their first date
