Local author publishes fiction book based on real life experiences

Updated:
A new book written by a local woman targets issues that many are afraid to discuss.

"Many times we think of the family who lives down the street, out the road is the perfect little normal family...that was like my family, except in my family my grandmother, she was a Sunday school teacher, and she was one of my main abusers. My uncle, who was a minister, was also one of my main abusers." says local resident and author, Pamela Corkle.

'Secret's in the Hollers' is Corkle's first book in a three part series.
Today Corkle was in Carthage signing books at the Mother Road Cafe.
She came from an abusive family and found therapy through writing.
"the reason that I started writing was I knew that what was in had to come out. And that was how I expressed myself...I could write these fantasy stories, I could write these make believe stories and I could go far away from the abuse that was taking place." Corkle explains.

While her book is fiction, it's based off a true story, which ultimately became her therapy, and form of release.

"Many times we choose not to talk about that because it's like the pink elephant in the room. We don't want to admit that children and or adults are being abused. Because truthfully that goes against our very nature." Corkle explains.

She says although the book may be tough to read in parts due to the descriptive details, many can relate to it's message.
