Tangled Minds


Tangled Minds

Tangled Minds

Several years ago after I finished releasing Dream Catcher Failure Was Never an Option, I sat down at my computer and wrote this book. The book itself is fiction, however, the storyline is fact. My oldest grandson has ADHD. His mother had him when she was very young. She made some bad decisions, not as bad as my character in the book but bad decisions none the less.

Tangled Minds is loosely based on that life experience. Sadly my grandson continues to make bad decisions and because of it his life has been a series of run ins with law. ADHD is one of the most misunderstood disabilities out there. When he was first diagnosed, I researched everything I could on this divisibility. I understand it so well. However, that being said it can be controlled. The mind is a funny thing – it will only take on a life of its own if we allow it to. Sadly many who have ADHD allow the mind to control the person instead of the other way around.

Tangled Minds is just that, the tangling of actions, reactions and the consequences of those actions and reactions which continue for generations.

If you haven’t yet read this book you need to- if your teens have read this book they need to. It will change the way you think.

” Tangled Minds is a masterpiece. In the fine tradition of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, Yvonne Mason leads the reader through the twisted and tangled lives of Brianna Van Pelt and her son, Josh, thrusting us into a Pygmalion dilemma that has consumed scholars for decades. Is there such a thing as a “bad seed”, an individual whose feet are placed upon a path of crime and evil almost from the beginning? Thwarted by her parents’ tough love, seventeen-year-old, single mother, Brianna, allows herself to be drawn into a new world glittering with easy money and false promises, accepting that proposition that no good girl ever should. With her young son, Josh, in tow, she dazzles with new prosperity, fulfilling the fantasies of not only her glorified pimp, Ken Morgan, but those of a judge and a host of depraved, desperate men in their wake.”
