Monday Morning Chat: Writing Physical & Sexual Abuse

Today I’m answering two questions:

How did I do the research regarding the trauma that Robin, Sarah, and Maxine experienced as children in the Jewel Series?

How do I approach things like rape and abuse in a way that keeps it from being too much versus kind of stale and boring? Continue reading
