AUTHOR: Karen Connell
I grew up in a small desert community, moved to UCLA for college during the freedom,hope and rebellion of the 1960’s then married the man of my dreams. Dreams that gradually turned to nightmares. How I escaped a violent marriage and near-death experience, became an advocate for domestic violence victims and found my life purpose, teaching others how to help themselves. I currently live in Harbor City, CA with my partner of 39 years and are surrounded by our children and grandchildren and soon to be great-grandchildren.
Beyond Surviving: Take Back Your Life Using the Power of Choice
My story will appeal to readers who feel trapped in an abusive relationship, the family, friends or therapists/coaches who want to help them. I will also appeal to people who are interested in taking charge of their lives and choosing the direction that speaks to them.
