About Karla To re write
My parents separated when I was nine years old, and during the 17 years that followed I struggled with the pain of my parent's divorce. Many times I tried to move on, but too many bad memories drew me back to my past. I lost what I called my family, home and security. I felt that something that was so precious to me had been taken away and I had no say in it. I struggled with the issues of rejection, rebellion, anger and depression.
 
Through my teens I didn’t really know what I was meant to do or be, so I started seeking attention in all the wrong places. My relationship with guys was built on rejection and insecurity. Then as I grew older, I knew what was lacking in my family and that was communication. As I grew up, I felt to write about my experiences as a child of divorce, as I knew that one day I would be able to recognise other children’s pain in this area and somehow help them with guidance and knowledge. Plus I felt I could help guide parents from my own experience.
 
After a few months of Christian Counselling and unconditional love from her Heavenly Father, I knew my broken heart was beginning to heal. I now felt loved, and in a way that I have never felt loved before. I was starting to learn life principals, forgiveness, unconditional love, and respect for others and herself. I was starting to become strong again, and I believed that I could have a brighter future, no matter how bad things seemed. I then searched through all the bookstores, trying to find a book about divorce, written by a child, but I couldn’t find anything. I was concerned as I thought the only person who could explain how it truly feels to go through a divorce as a child; is a child. I then knew I had to be the one to write this. So I decided to step out and do something I’d never done before, self-publish my own books.
 
No publishers at the time seemed to think that my books were what they considered in “their stream of work,” but I still knew that the children needed A VOICE. Barbara Holborow (former Magistrate of the NSW Children’s Courts) endorsed both of my books, and I opened my book launch in Sydney Parliament House on the 3rd of March 2003. I stepped out in faith; it’s as simple as that. From something that once took control of my life I am now in control of and looking forward to seeing chains broken off people dealing with divorce as well. I want to see Children of Divorce strive ahead towards their awesome future.
