Dear Reader!

My ambition is to stimulate your thoughts and feelings, not just invite you to enjoy a reading experien­ce. For most of my adult life I have been interested in human survival issues, and my writing has been hugely influenced by con­cerns relat­ing to women’s vulnerability in society. My books reflect this fact. They are the result of research that I began in the early 1970’s while living in London. It was then that I put my thoughts into words for the first time in an academic thesis about women’s’ life experiences and the injustices they face around the world.

Due to a variety of circumstances I ended up in Sweden – a coun­try where, according to the law, men and women are considered equal. However, it didn’t take me long to realize that, even here, fe­ma­le vulnerability still exists.

A lot of water would flow under the bridge before this story was transformed from an academic paper into a novel. I felt compelled to draw attention to the domestic violence that exists all around us, every day. I had no choice but to rise to the challenge and attempt to write a captivating trilogy on this serious subject.

Although self-publishing is not a new phenomenon, it invol­ves a lot more than just writing a book. Nothing is served on a silver plat­ter, it takes hard work and dedication every step of the process. The tech­nical and practical skills I have accumu­lated along the way are im­measurable.

In particular I would just like to say how pleased I am that you are holding a copy of DESPAIR or IMPACT in your hand. If you like the book, please spread the word. Tell your friends and colleagues during the coffee break at work or on social media, and help me gather as much interest as possible. I would also appreciate it if you could write a little note on my Facebook page after you have read it.

I sincerely hope you will like my books!
