Feb, 2006. For the past five months I have been living in a car at the edge of woods — jobless and homeless and totally unable to find a way out. I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't scream loudly enough, but I can read and write. So here I am laying down tracks...hopefully the start of an online paper trail out of here. (Update: Miracles happen....if you are reading my story I am part of your proof.)

Did I really just do that?

I'm reading The Bone People at the moment...it was recommended...That's all I can think to say for you to know who you are...not sure if that is good or bad.

Hi there. I just finished reading your book Abondoned and wow what a read. It was an awesome read and I simply couldn't put it down hence I read it in 2 days. I am so pleased you have come out the otherside of your abuse a well rounded and thoroughly interesting person. Well done!....you have made it when so many who have been abused haven't. I had to message say thank you for the book and for being so frank about your life. Abuse can happen to all of us....as it did for me....but we do get through with love, determination and a strong sense of self. My thoughts, prayers and love go to you from here in New Zealand to you in the UK. Regards

Anya, you are truly amazing, in that you came through a life that most people wouldn't dream about, i think you could really help other people..indeed i think you were probably primed in your life to help others..people would listen to you because you are worth listening to, you've been through it and now what you are talking about, may God Bless you if he hasn't already, don't waste your perfectly bad experience, put it to good use, i would love to know how you are getting on these days.

wanderingscribe, I absolutely think you are one of the bravest people I have ever heard of. I just read your book and I couldn't put it down.
I had to know how you got out of the life you were living in your car, and I just had to comment and say God bless you and keep you in his mighty hands, he loves you and those angels did keep you and your car safe, thankyou for sharing your testimony with us. JJ

Hi Anya. I just finished reading your book. What happened to your mummy? Did she read your book?

You're an inspiration. Thanks for the book

I just spent the last 7 hours in an incredibly uncomfortable chair unable to move from it due to being glued to your book. I just couldn't put it down no matter how much I told myself "Okay, just finish this page THEN I'll take a bathroom break." That would turn into "Okay, just have to finish this Chapter then I'll go to bed and finish it in the morning." Nope, I don't know how I did it but I managed to read it start to finish, and loved it. I couldn't believe how much I could relate to the personality you seemed to have as a kid/teenager, I felt almost as though I was the one that wrote the book even though it wasn't anything like the way my childhood was, aside from the daily screaming and arguments that can't seem to be avoided. I really love how you kept things realistic, and told it from the heart. There were a couple times where I've felt a tear run down my cheek just because of the Imagery & details you provided. It must have taken a lot to write something that personal and share it with the world, but I'm so glad you did. I hope you're now doing well and are happy with your social/living/family situation(s). I do have to ask if Kathy & your Mummy ever read your book and reconnected with you or at least communicated with you about it in some way?

just finished your fantastic book with its truley remarkable insight to some of the darker sides of life. I to have been where you were and although i was in a homeless shelter, at only 16 it was terrifing stuff.
Life gives us hope daily and although it is 28 years later and i am now married with 4 daughters, the past and the way i lived remains a constant part of my lives and shapes some of the decissions i make.
I appreciate the small things in life and if you think you have nothing you can always have hope...that in itself is something

I've just this minute finished your book abandoned. I started reading it last night and I've just finished it. Its been on my bookshelf a few months and I wish I'd read it sooner. I couldn't put it down. Its one of the best books I've read In a while. I admire you for what you have done and how you didn't lose courage totally. I love how you still believed in yourself deep down and that you kept your dignity as best as possible. You are a roles model to many many people and I believe all people should read your book, I'm glad you have now found your way. Your childhood must have been horrific and I could never Imagine how it was for you. Glad you never gave up. That story was very touching and how you rose above all the people and situations you had been in. Well done ;) kerrie
