Abuse.  How many times have we heard that word, shook our heads, wondered how anyone could do such a thing and then go on our merry way, it completely forgotten.  Unless you have been a victim.  Then it brings back the terror, the loneliness, the agony, the despair – what did I do to deserve this?  What did I do wrong?

JD know.  Today is his birthday.  And he has done something so brave, and so amazing and so horrifying that if you walk away from these books with your soul intact, you never had one in the first place.  I urge you to buy them, to read them, to share them, and the next time you hear the word abuse you will stop and REMEMBER.  Because it does happen.  Not just in the news or on the television or to people you read about – it happens TO REAL PEOPLE BY PEOPLE THEY THOUGHT LOVED THEM AND THAT THEY COULD TRUST.  Why do I know so much about this?  Why don’t you think about that for a minute…..


I currently live in Northern England. I spends most of my days writing non-fiction, fiction and the occasional spot of poetry.

My name is JD Stockholm. I am the author of Dear Teddy.

I wrote this to give a child that never had one a voice. I also blog as I go. The blog is mostly for my journey. To get those thoughts out that linger in my mind until I am driven crazy. Its sharing. Maybe someone reading will realise they are not alone. Maybe when someone comments I will realise that too.

We all walk along different paths, but sometimes, when the road is rocky, the way to go is unclear and you just need that helping hand. Its good to look over the canyon next you and see someone else doing the same.

Give them a little wave. Smile say Hi. And know that why ever you are here reading. If your struggles plague you. You are not alone.

The book or blog maybe triggering. Please read with caution if you have been a victim of abuse in any kind.
