Red Crow Mi’gMaq reservation, 1976: By government decree, every Indian child under the age of 18 must attend residential school. That means imprisonment at St. Dymphna’s and being at the mercy of Popper, the sadistic Indian agent who runs the school. At 15, Aila is the weed princess of Red Crow. She sells enough dope to pay Popper her truancy tax, keeping her out of St. D’s. But when Aila’s drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, her only options are to run or fight.

Celebrate Saskatchewan Library Week as Shelly Ann shares her new book. This compelling true story of one victim’s struggle to overcome the abuse she endured as a child is a must read! This story is proven by court files, mental health records and child welfare files.
Shelly Ann shares her own personal journey to survive the adverse effects of the extreme abuse that she suffered as a child. By telling her story of survival she hopes to help other victims to understand that we are creatures of response and the behavioral patterns we develop are just that, responses, and we all respond the same way. You will ride the emotional roller coaster with her as she shares her insights and experiences on anger, pain, grief, guilt, depression, self-sabotage and suicide. She will inspire you to know and understand that no matter where you come from you can be all that you were meant to be.
Shelly Ann is the recipient of the 2014 Esquao Award – Arts & Literature, author/public speaker, has a Psychology/Social Work Diploma, is an Advanced Level 4 Life Skills Coach/Therapist, Certified Anger Resolution Therapist, Career Practitioner, Advocate for Victims of Violence, Steward of Abused Children, and a Survivor.

I feared this may happen. I knew reading was a dangerous business, but now it’s not safe for writers either! You see, the author of this book is missing. Well, maybe not “missing.” A certain author whom I won’t name (okay, me) has abandoned his book and has left his readers hanging out to dry. This is a crime, I admit, but there it is. Most of this book, well, I just haven’t written it. And I’m not going to, either.
Why? Oh, I have my reasons. Big. Grown up. Author. Reasons. Unfortunately, I can’t reveal them yet. Let’s just say a life is at stake (mine) and leave it at that. So will you do it? Pretty please? You’ll do it? Thank you! But please hurry! Time is of the essence and you can’t wait any longer. You must WRITE THIS BOOK!
Create your own unique mystery book! Call (306) 763-8496 to register for this six session program. For ages 11-15. Space is limited.
