I was a social worker; but my trauma and need for an entrepreneurial lifestyle said
"nope" - so now I do whatever I want.
Another day, another project.
THE LIGHT IN THE POOL
A girl leaves the warm cocoon of a small town to the city of Toronto where she gets lost in rave land, drug addiction, prostitution, psych wards, failed relationships and multiple suicide attempts. The light in the pool is a real-life, coming-of-age story with a strengthened emphasis on reconnecting with her spiritual, inner world. It isn't until she reaches her late 20s, after years living a stable, comfortable life that she faces an unexpected trigger that brings all her suppressed memories (and rage) to the surface and it takes several years to truly recover. The Light in the Pooltells a story of searching for clarity and inner peace from sexual abuse, complex post traumatic stress disorder, addiction and codependency. A story capturing the power of disconnection from one's own body and remembering things that are better left forgotten.
EVERYTHING ALICE SAID
Further down the rabbit hole she goes...A 20-something year old girl tries to make sense of childhood sexual abuse and how that trauma has shaped her views on men, society, relationships, pornography, monogamy and abandonment. During her experimental and unsober years, the disassociation from her body continues and she unknowingly reenacts her abuse and retrauamtizes herself in the process by transforming herself into an escort named Alice. She soon learns that everything Alice says is a facade: a mind-controlled performance, birthed in the sleazy corridors of molestation and a pornographic, beauty obsessed society designed to create a robotic understanding of what a woman should be. Packed with real-life accounts of motel living and hooker-for-hire lingo, this memoir tells a story of female rage, rebellion, self forgiveness and emotional healing.
