My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer, an ability feared and hated as much as the powers my master and I set ourselves against. We’ve vanquished many evils, but now something is releasing an old darkness, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I’ve faced before. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and … damn, I need a vacation.
My name is Mei Walker and everyone wants me dead. Well, maybe not everyone, but some days it feels like that.
The world I live in is secretive and hidden. I’m a shifter, one of the many supernaturals who hide in plain sight from the humans.
On top of all that, I’m being hunted for a crime I didn’t commit. For a secret I don’t even know.
But I’ve had enough – I’m sick of hiding in the shadows. It’s time to turn the tables.
I might not survive, but it’s going to be a hell of a ride…
In this deeply moving, personal account, a father vividly recounts his dark childhood during the interview of his life-a journey that takes him from the small Caribbean island of Trinidad, around the world, and back. Struggling to break free from his past, he is brought to his knees and broken into pieces. His son puts him back together by teaching him the art of true forgiveness and unconditional love.
Determined to break his family’s cycle of dysfunction, he challenges core traditional parenting techniques by practicing a new form of discipline: patience, affection and compassion. His conviction leads him through a maze of profound self discovery and ultimately helps him find what he, and perhaps many of us are searching for: a parent’s love, self-worth and happiness.

Some simply unforgivable.

And once again, I’m reminded just how cruel life can be.

Moms, if you think your life is going to be perfect, I’ve got news: It’s not happening.
This book details the many curveballs life has thrown my way. It’s where I embrace the mistakes I’ve made (and hope you don’t judge me too much). As a mother of two with a special needs son, I know what it’s like to have a family that doesn’t fit the mold – and I love it. My kids are the gifts that keep on giving.
I’m tipping a hat to my journalism past and sharing my family’s crazy stories to help other moms realize that life isn’t that bad. If you had a terrible day and screamed at your kid, big deal. Here you’ll find inspiration for moms who aren’t sure about what they’re doing. (And don’t worry, there are a lot of us.) I’ve realized that dysfunction is at its best when family’s concerned, and believe me, mine is no exception.
We’ve all got adversities in life. My response? Laugh through it!
