Finding Kirsten A Memoir

A Science-Fiction Memoir about a Mother's journey to finding herself, amidst a mental health crisis. She learns to love herself, despite her complex trauma and on going mental illness. Along the way she encounters unexpected spiritual experiences and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; that leave her questioning everything she has ever believed.

Hello World!

Welcome to the inner workings of my mind! I am so excited to share my creation with you. Although I have created my story into something a little more “fun;” it very much gives you an inside look at the mind of someone with mental illness and significant trauma. Many will ask, why I chose to write this using myself as the main character. The truth is simple. The only way I would be able to write this story, is if I experienced it myself. It had to be told through first person, to allow the reader to understand exactly what I was experiencing in that moment. As far as not even changing my name, in the story? That is because I have worked my ass off, to get to where I am today, mentally. The women that I have become, deserves some credit for everything she has gone through. I write this story in homage to myself. My battle wounds are harsh, but the healing is beautiful.
