My name is Brent Parks and I have just about driven my girlfriend Rena to her limits. In a few days, she will take my life. I can't necessarily blame her because I have abused her on and off during our relationship. 

Before I met her, I faced my own demons - for years, I suffered violence at the hands of my father. I am not trying to make excuses but I hope you will understand that there is another side to this story, a side I would like to tell you about....


This Novella can be read independently from "Living With The Choices We Make" however, it contains references to the main story and it would be beneficial to read both for completeness.


Authors Note:
This is a story about child abuse and domestic violence and tells the story from the eyes of an abuser as a reminder what can happen to children who suffer violence at the hands of their parents. 
Please do not read this book if you find this topic disturbing. It is not designed to upset anyone but to raise awareness.

Your books are one of the only thrillers that have gotten my blood rushing. I've read Trapped, Survive, Living With The Choices We Make, and now I'm reading this. I am really in love with your work. It is so realistic and wonderful.

That's so messed up on so many levels. If Brent had to abuse his only "friend" when he was only 4, I guess it's really no wonder how it was ingrained in him by the time he was a man.

This was very hard to read and very sad indeed,one never wants to see or read of a child suffering especially at the hands on one's parents but it happens all the time
