The Living Hunger, the title of my second book is more than just a blog. It's an urge that drives readers and writers to investigate, create and consume. Explore the possibilities with me, as I share my works and others in our quest to satisfy that 'Hunger'.

A Bully Laid Bare
I've just completed a book by Sasha Dreams, a unique work chronicling her early childhood, which at times was difficult to read. Not due to the writer's abilities but rather the content. Sasha has written something so deep and painful that it touched me in a way no other book has. A child's psyche twisted and changed under the weight of neglectful, irresponsible parents, and more is heartbreaking. The morphing of this girl from a talented, energetic child to a 'monster' of sorts is appalling but also incredibly insightful. Getting a glimpse into the bully's life, her struggles, thoughts, and actions is truly eye-opening.
If you've ever been bullied or know someone who is -- this is a book you should read and pass on. The work is not complete and I'd expect to see something soon from this gifted new author.
Recommended for school children, 10 and older, and adults.
"Outstanding read!! I picked this book up around 12:00 am and put it
down around 2:00 am, when I finished it. Sounds unreasonable? Let me
know how it goes for you when you start reading it. The author, Sasha
Dreams, has taken a course of action that many of use fail to take, she
confronted her “demons” and the darkness that controlled her young life.
Throughout the course of the book I felt great joy, sadness, anger,
disappointment and most importantly HOPE. The cover and title speaks
volumes about the content of the book, but I can assure you there is
much more. Bullying has been a hot topic in today’s society, and I
believe Sasha Dreams exposes the mind of a bully. Often times we ask the
question, why? Well, I suggest reading this book, and I believe you
will gain a plethora of knowledge on the mindset of a bully. One lesson I
have learned from this particular “chapter” of Sasha’s life is, no
matter how bad the situation may be, with Jesus there is hope. This
hope, as Sasha discovered, lies in true forgiveness. So without giving
to much detail, travel with Sasha Dreams, and take a glance at her
heart, I can assure, you will be blessed. I consider this book a
testament to her boldness, and courageous attitude towards overcoming. I
would suggest this book to anyone looking to gain more insight of a
“bully” and the triumphant path of overcoming." -- KwileyBooks
