About the author

Valerie Hayes

Valerie Hayes writes creative non-fiction, poetry and a blog. She chronicles the childhood adversities that subjected her to extremes in poverty, domestic violence, child abuse, and foster homes. Months before she graduated from high school she was abducted by an Exclusive Brethren high school teacher who conspired with her older brother to call it an adoption. Valerie was never up for adoption. Her story describes her brother's corporate rise to power and the years of abuse she endured under the foundational lies established by psychopaths.
