Domestic Violence on Ice, How I transformed my shattered dream into an inspirational story, is a compelling story of love, lies, drugs, paranoia, depression and eventually violence. The story covers Melissa’s departure from the world that left her feeling completely empty. She walked away not knowing who she was, she didn’t recognise herself anymore.
She spent the following two years rebuilding her life so she could become the woman she dreamed of being. In the years that followed, Melissa sought to find her true being, resulting in her achieving many of her lifelong goals and dreams.
She has lived in many places she had once only ever dreamed of, travelled, enjoyed her dream tropical island wedding with her new husband and children, and added a third child to her family. She has completed her studies, a Bachelor in Business Information and Diploma in Applied writing, and achieved her greatest goal becoming a published author in October 2017.
Melissa continues to write and is an inspirational speaker and thought leader on the future of humankindness.
I felt moved and intrigued to learn about the story. It's so beautifully written and easy to read, I feel like I was transported into your mind and your emotions during that painful time in your life. I can't wait to read it!
It was amazing. It held my attention right to the very end and when I finished reading the last sentence, I felt amazing. Powerful. Confident. In awe of my self and other solo parents. It gave me a renewed sense of self and sense of value. The power of a woman, a mother, a daughter, a sister. A woman. Wow.
