While raising his children during their infancy, Paul E. Morrissette became aware of how dependent and vulnerable children were.

“As parents we are their last line of defense, their predominant safeguards and their life line,” says the author. “Then it hit me. Who would protect a child from harm if the parents were the transgressors?”

This probing question led Morrissette to write his new novel, “Charlie Ann: A Child's Perilous Exposure” (published by AuthorHouse).

Charlie Ann tells the story of young Charlie Ann, who is placed in protective custody after her father, Hank, kills her mother. Yet before Hank can be apprehended, Charlie Ann is abducted.

“Although it is a novel,” says Morrissette of “Charlie Ann”, “it is not far-fetched. Alcohol and physical abuse and child abduction is happening as we experience our daily lives. If anything, I would think that after reading this novel, individuals will be more familiar with conditions that would provide warning or harbingers of children being mistreated.”

In the end, Morrissette hopes his new book will help promote a healthier and safer life for children everywhere.
