Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Teresa Joyce was born in 1958 the middle child of three. After losing her father at a very young age; it was to set the pattern for the rest of her life. Losing was something that she would have to get used to. Her mother through no fault of her own after that loss had no other alternative, then to return to her parent’s home with her children in tow. This family unit were to spend only a few years there, until the wind of change came around once more. Her mother was set to meet the man that was to become Teresa’s stepfather. This union became a place for Teresa that felt like hell on earth. One in which she would spend many days months and years hating. Teresa swore to herself that she would leave all this behind her at the first possible occasion. She can still clearly remember the day that she left that family home and joined the Royal Air Force. Her stepfather had informed her that to remain living in his house, she had to live by his rules. She could no longer live by any rules that he imposed. Memories of those years living by his rules were buried so deep, that previous years and events were only a burr to her. The onset of a set of circumstances beyond her control would stamp its seal on her marriage making it unworkable. Engineered by the involvement of the one man Teresa had learnt to hate - her stepfather. The marriage was dissolved and that door was firmly closed behind her. Some years later she would find herself in a long term lesbian relationship, firmly believing that anything touched by a man was tainted. There was to be another turn from her envisaged path, it was to arrive in the form of an accident. After many months and many doctors reports she was ill health retired, unable to return to work in either one of her two loved occupations. Teresa was affected by this far more then she could have ever expected, she was left alone with nothing but time. Teresa saw herself delving deeper and deeper into her own unconscious thoughts, revealing to her at that time memories which seemed so alien. Maybe today you could say that she has once more taken back control of her life, but only outwardly. The truth is she still carries the past along with her, like an uninvited guest at a party. The one that never seems to know when the party is over and it’s time to leave. Teresa is now trying to live her life as fully as possible, through her son and grandson; they have become her light at the end of the tunnel.

A heart warmimg story

I would also like to share this story with you. Whilst emailing talk shows I sent an email to a particular lady host. It was strange as it took me some time to find her email address, but something told me to keep looking. Once found I emailed her. Within ten minutes I received an urgent reply, and the response was something I could never have hoped or dreamed of. It seems that her son had tried to kill himself the previous week. After a few emails back and forth I rang her on her direct line in New York. She told me that morning she felt she could no longer go on and that my email had arrived just at the point she was ready to give up. It gladdened my heart to think that my book even in its condensed form was still able to reach out to someone in dire need. The message she received is that no matter how hard it gets, as I always say, there is light at the end of the tunnel you just need to reach out for it. That deep inside of you can find the strength you need, or a hand to hold to walk you towards it. I have emailed her a PDF file of my book and hope this will help her further.

Book excerpt

Chapter 4

This chapter for me will be the hardest thing I ever hope to write. It has taken me days just to return to my pc and try to do so. I know I have to write this and in doing so, I will leave myself wide open. It will be like walking back into the lion’s den. Neither is it trying to hide my shame, because even to this day I rightly blame myself. I expect anyone reading this would also take that line. I am not going to stretch this out more than I need to do so, but the facts have to… Continue

Questions and answers

Why don't we start off by giving the readers some information about you and your book?

1. Why did you decide to share your story with the world?

Answer – This is a very good question and one I have asked myself many times over. The answer is not very black and white; it’s was a combination of many factories. It truth at first it was a way of trying to heal myself, if I could just revisit that dark place then maybe I could find some sort of closure. Seeing it down in print made… Continue
