About the Author:

Deborah Lysholm is an accomplished dancer whose professional career spans more than four decades --from performing, choreographing, and teaching thousands of students, to building her own performing arts center, Heartbeat Studios, in Apple Valley, MN. In addition to a lifetime devotion to dance, Deborah and her daughter Kristin are survivors of two decades of domestic violence; they won the first U.S. domestic violence lawsuit in civil court. Their story of survival has been featured in major newspapers and television news shows. Deborah is also a sought-after speaker on the subject, enlightening audiences that violence in the home still affects 25 percent of U.S. women, and that we all have it in us to start over.
