Would you defend yourself if someone attacked you? Would you kill them? What if you knew they’d stop at nothing to kill you? Would you kill them then? What if that someone was your own mother? Would that make a difference; should it? Tiffany is a seventeen year old girl who’s caught in a battle for existence. As Tiffany tries to claim rights to her own life and mind, her abusive mother struggles to maintain control. Pouring her hatred for the world onto her daughter, Tiffany suffers under her mother’s guise of concern as her mother convinces everyone that Tiffany’s wounds are self-inflicted. Fighting to prove she's not mentally unstable and seeking escape from her mother’s tyranny, Tiffany must make the ultimate choice as to who lives and who dies. Is her redemption and vindication worth the price of her soul?

My youngest daughter prefers to read books with a darker content. She asked me to write a book that would appeal to that genre style. A PRISONER WITHIN is the result of that request!
I wanted to have a believable story that would give a new perspective to "monsters" and "horror." When I thought about how I personally would define those two words, I knew I had my story. There's nothing more terrifying to me than the sinister side of human nature and the potential abuse that we can inflict.
Some of my favorite excerpts from the book are:
