GIRL IN FATHERLAND is based on true events but reads like a novel. Berlin, 2013: We follow the story of Lucy, a girl who has been split into several pieces by systematic torture and psychological terror. As fragments of Lucy’s memories are being presented like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, the reader is being taken from a seemingly ordinary, happy life into the hell of Lucy’s past and back again into the now apparently changed present...

We aren’t made to be broken. I am a survivor of Ritual Abuse and Mind Control. Simplified, “healing” from this complex, lifelong trauma means deprogramming. On my way I found a lot of good advice, courage, support, love, and warmth from other people. However, I never found what I looked most desperately for: a straightforward explanation about what was going on, practical help how to remember what has happened to me, a fast way to escape th...

Submitted GIRL IN FATHERLAND to amazon *EXCITING*
Fatherland / January 10, 2017

Just clicked on “submit” for the final version of GIRL IN FATHERLAND. Can’t believe I wrote that. Great ending. Disturbing, but great. It tells us what to live for.
