The Girls Continue to Have a Voice

for updated cover front2

A Couple of days ago I posted that I have received a phone call from the production company that produces some of the shows for Investigation Discovery. That production company is Optomen Production and they are based out of New York. They will be here next Thursday. For those of you who hated the book, who wrote bad reviews, who said it was not worth your time. Well, while that may be so, there are still people out there who want to tell the story based on my book. They thought it was good enough- I have to say I am humbled by all of this.
I have always said that the victims drive this train. They are the ones who determine when we take a new journey. After seven years they have decided that it is time to be in the limelight. The beauty of this show is that it will be shown over and over again on Investigation Discovery as well as online. The girls will now have a voice in places they didn’t before.
To make it even better some of the people involved with this case are still alive and are willing to be interviewed. I cannot explain the feeling I have about this journey. It is humbling, it is sad, yet happy. It is without doubt one of the highlights of my life.
Those of you who have supported me who have read the book and understood why I wrote it the way I did, who appreciated the fact that it is raw, it is hard to stomach and it shows the evil of Schaefer in ways that no one else has, I am so grateful to you. You will never know how much it means that you have supported me. Supported the victims so that they will never be silent again. The girls will never be forgotten because of each of you.
I believe that all things happen in their time and it is now the time for the girls. They no longer scream silently they have a voice.
What an honor to be a part of something so important to them.

The Victims of Gerard Schaefer Have Taken Their Story to the Next Level

for updated cover front2

Silent Scream my first true crime has always been very close to my heart. It is the voice of the victims of Gerard Schaefer who were long ago forgotten. This book has raised many voices of both controversy and praise. Some have hated it because it is raw and it does not sanitize the horrific torture and murder of the victims nor does it glorify Schaefer. It shows him for the monster he was, it shows how the girls were tortured and murdered and even after death tortured even more. I refused to compromise on this book. It is written from an investigative mindset. The reason is simple that is what the girls wanted.

Yes, you may laugh and say how would you know they are dead. That is true, but when I say this is what they wanted it is very true. As I started this book,I tried many ways to write it but it would not flow, when I gave up and just let them write their stories it flowed.

Gerard Schaefer was Florida’s first serial killer before Bundy or Rolling however, he never received the kind of fame the other two did, he always hated that. He wanted to be known for his acts of horror but yet he denied it without denying it. It was a game to him. He thought he knew how to beat the system to get away with his little game of horrors. The girls are speaking out now. They are no longer without a voice.

I got a call on Thursday July 10, 2014 from the Television Channel Investigation Discovery, http://www.investigationdiscovery.com/ they will be at my house on July 23rd to interview me about Silent Scream and the girls. They will filming a show about the victims and Schaefer.This has long been a dream of mine that the girls would be heard by the masses, that their voice would be heard and that they would no longer be forgotten. They had names, they had dreams, they had families and they had lives. Those lives were cut short way to soon. They did not deserve any of that, the least we can do now is remember to allow their memory to live so that the universe will know they were here.

Another dream is that this book will eventually become a movie, I do not know if that will happen or not. The girls will tell me until then, think good thoughts and help us to get the word out that the show is coming.

For the Girls!!!!!!
