Share Article

New book follows the author’s tumultuous life growing up with sociopathic parents!

"Imagine growing up without a parent’s love.” This is what author Cherylann Thomas wants readers to think about as she shares her provocative true story.

Evil Eyes: A Daughter’s Memoir straightforwardly follows Cherylann’s chaotic journey growing up in an abusive family and how it has affected her psyche, her emotional well-being, and her feelings of self-worth.

Thomas is brutally honest in her account of a life filled with loss and abandonment by the very people, her family, who should have protected and loved her. As a child she grew up with a psychopath father, malignant narcissist mother, and sexual molesting stepfather. In this book, her ability to articulate her experiences is inspiring and gripping.

“The neglect, the verbal attacks, the lack of love, and the blame and the shame my mother placed at my feet almost killed me. This is why my memoir must be written... I want to let people know they are not alone, and no one deserves to be assaulted physically, emotionally or sexually – and they can get out,” the author reveals.

Thomas’ point in writing Evil Eyes: A Daughter’s Memoir is not to bash her parents or siblings, or herself. She simply wants to educate readers by sharing her very personal and unabashed story, which hopefully will help others recognize if they are involved in a psychopathic or malignant narcissist relationship and on how they can get help to regain a healthy, happy life as soon as possible. She also forces the reader to take a hard look at the medical community and how they habitually fail children of abuse who often grow up with poor coping skills and self-defeating behaviors costing trillions of dollars in pharmaceuticals, hospitalizations, social service outlets, and prisons.
