Hello. I would like to thank my many supporters for reading and understanding the trials and tribulations of survival. Writing "Not Just The Levees Broke" My Story During and After Hurricane Katrina was very painful, but cathartic. It literally, saved my life being able to release all that we endured during one of the most painful times in my life. When I am asked about giving Glory to God, some readers have pointed out the profanity in my memoir. I simply tell them, "I Pray more than I Cuss." God knows my heart and I survived for a reason. My next memoir I am hoping to have published is also a journey of survival. Only this time, this one began as a teenager of 16 years old, into my young womanhood of being abused by a boyfriend. It is a story that I am hoping reaches parents to communicate with their children on both sides. The abused and the abusers, so that we can somehow bring to light this "Secret Society" that not only affects adults, but young people. Thanks again for the support and those who choose to criticize me for my being so direct and to the point. Phyllis Montana-Leblanc.About the Author:
