I spent over ten years writing and rewriting this book. This book is a true story but it is not a 'domestic violence' book, nor a true crime book, it was designed to cross several genre's, from memoir, literary, and instructional to horror and 'humorous' horror. If you say 'no, you can't do that', please read it and allow Torn to speak for itself.From the Inside Flap:
TORN EXCERPT: "Thunder rattled the window- panes two stories high and lightning split the sky, it was as if the whole world was in turmoil that night. My nerves were keyed up as tight as piano strings and in a sudden moment of stillness and silence it felt as though my heartbeat was amplified ten times over. He was over a hundred pounds greater than I, nearly a foot taller and I knew he could move his muscled body into unbelievable sprints. Rain started falling in torrents, while the storm raged outside. I was not afraid of the storms of nature; it was the storm inside this night that I knew I might not survive"...February 13th, 1987, the night of Sara Niles’ flight with her five small children. SYNOPSIS:
Given away to her aged Uncle Robert and Aunt Molly at age 3 ½, Sara spent ten years on the ‘flower bed of Eden’ being lavished with love and attention until death took its toll and Sara married an abusive man named Thomas Niles when she was only 16. Niles invites us to enter into her lifelong odyssey by the words: 'Let the journey begin', and so it does as the reader enters into a formerly forbidden zone. The story of Sara Niles becomes more than a story of one woman's journey into pain, it resounds with the voices of the many veterans of domestic war. Torn From the Inside Out celebrates a power greater than death itself, the power of the human spirit under fire. About the author: Sara Niles is the author’s pen name, chosen for Torn From the Inside Out. Niles spent almost a decade, obtaining the necessary degrees, training and experience to enrich the pages of torn with psychological accuracy, and the depth of emotion needed to convey a powerful story. Niles is a domestic violence Trainer and Counselor. Niles loves music, athletics and art, especially the music of the Greek composer Yanni. Most of Torn From the Inside Out was written to the stirring background sounds of Yanni, as the author wrote wearing headphones.
