Have you ever found yourself at rock-bottom?

Having my picture taken, as a twelve-year-old, I felt truly beautiful for the first time in my life. It was an unfamiliar but pleasant feeling that day. For a fleeting moment in a lifetime of trauma, I felt loved and cherished.

As a child, I lived in fear of losing those I loved if the awful truth were made public.

By age twenty, with poor life skills and a one-year-old baby, I felt I had lived decades beyond my years. My terrible choices landed me in a jail cell, and life was an absolute mess. I had no idea how I had gotten there, or how to fix it. I was utterly defeated.

At age thirty, I made an impulsive decision which left me extremely exposed and vulnerable, shaken to my core. It was a turning point in my life, but to get to the sunshine, you've got to weather the storm.

And weather the storm I did.


Red Raw Rated


Incredible read, Red Raw highlights life problems that are so easily missed by some even when it's done under their noses, how making choices can destroy or create life, considering this is pretty much now and not the 60's I was shocked at how individuals can be so cruel, manipulative and cunning and still avoid the law Yet the truth will always come out



100% would recommend buying!


This book is so inspirational and empowering! So many people go through what Kayleen went through and stay quiet about it and never speak up, this AMAZING WOMAN WROTE A FRIGGING BOOK about what she went through while she was growing up and finding her true self! I'm so thankful for you to stand up, take charge and have a voice. I would 100% recommend buying this book!!!



An Incredible to hell and back!


The book was exceptionally captivating from the first words I read. I found I couldn't put it down, I was drawn in to the vortex, "What happens next? "Can it get any worse?" Kayleen has a great way with words. She creates pictures in your mind. I could see her story unfold as if on a "Big Movie Screen", where I think her story should literally be told, on a "Big Movie Screen!" A Blockbuster! As I continued to read, I couldn't keep the tears from flowing down my cheeks, sometime I would sob so heavily, I would have to put the book down. For one it was too painful, and the other reason , I couldn't read from the tears! I just wanted to jump into the book and save her! I would think to myself, "how much more can poor girl bear? How can a human being take any more of this? It can't get any worse can it?" It seemed like the dark forces had it in for dear Kayleen, wanting to destroy her. While reading this, I couldn't fathom how anyone could have lived like this. I almost feel guilty as I had the perfect loving parents, who cared for us well, my brother and I, in every way.
