My name is Katie King. I am a survivor of emotional and physical abuse as a child, as well as sexual abuse and rape. I am also much more than that. I have my BA in Literature and am working toward my MFA in writing. I work as a nanny to support my education and my writing habit. I’m the eldest of five, and have a good relationship with my parents and siblings. I have a huge extended family, get along really well with some of them, and have to be careful with others.
I am a Christian, and I firmly believe that God is helping me get through this, and that his help is available to all who ask.
I still struggle sometimes to cope with what happened to me, and I know that a lot of others do too. I want to be a resource for anyone who needs to talk, and I’d like to share the ways that I’ve gained victory over my pain in the areas of my life where I’ve taken control.
