Lisa Lawson, an outdoors enthusiast who loves camping, four wheeling, and horseback riding in her home state of Kentucky, has completed her new book “I Am a Survivor (of My Childhood)”: a candid account of devastating abuse and the courage the author ultimately found to confront her abuser and prevent him from attacking her sisters.

The author shares, “I am one of many people who has survived child abuse and not become an abuser or use it as an excuse for my behavior. I waited this story to come out to let other people like me to know that they are not the only ones out there. They are not alone; and for the ones who do turn into an abuser and killers and use the excuse that ‘I am this way because I was abused as a child,’ that is wrong. I am here to tell you that the chains can be broken. I did it, and so have other people. It’s not easy, but it can be done.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lisa Lawson’s book is a devastating and personal account of unimaginable abuse in a Kentucky family.

Readers who wish to experience this engrossing work can purchase “I Am a Survivor (of My Childhood)” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
