Laurel Anne Hill grew up in San Francisco, with more dreams of an adventure than good sense or money. Her close brushes with death, love of family, respect for honor and belief in a higher power influence her writing and life.
Her early home life included a happy-drunk Grandfather and a mean-drunk Dad: So mean and violent that she, her Mother, Grandmother, and brother often hid in the basement to escape his wrath.
This life pattern, of course, set the stage for the first marriage to an abuser. It also created fertile ground in her mind to create heroic female characters and alternate Universes. At the age of 5, before she could read or write, she dictated stories to her older sister and used paper cut-outs as an illustration!
Her journey through childhood violence and domestic emotional abuse led Laurel Anne to become a strong, creative, talented and honored author.
Laurel Anne’s best-selling book, The Engine Woman’s Light, has won prestigious awards in the category of steampunk…which she explains is a fascinating alternative literary Universe. Laurel Ann’s diverse life experience has inspired her creative mind in many ways, as you’ll discover in this podcast conversation.

It was the lies and emotional abuse that lead my guest to research and discover that BOTH her Exs had extreme childhood trauma.
She said “This fact was something NOT taught in a triple Masters program in Psychology!”
After 2 years of research, she discovered childhood trauma leads to emotional abuse and that made total sense, for her healing and the healing of her psychotherapy and coaching clients as well.

Her abusive marriage mirrored a made-for-TV movie. Then she decided that God must see so much strength in her; she shifted her focus from victim to thriver.
Kim Lyons describes domestic abuse as emotional terrorism and says what we all know to be true: If you haven’t lived it, you just don’t get it! Thrivers are a sorority of sisterhood. (Not a sorority in which we want to be Members, but in a sisterhood of support, encouragement, and inspiration.)
Now Kim works with people who want to harness their full power in life, with no limits!

Many of us can relate to Rena Romano’s statement that for many years, on the outside her life looked perfect. She was a successful business woman, friends were envious, her Mother was proud.
On the inside she was dying, a broken soul.
Harboring a horrific secret since childhood, no one knew the pain she was suffering.
Then she chose to become a Thriver: she created and embraced her truth that there is always an upside no matter what you’ve been through.
In October 2009 Rena was a featured guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show where she shared her long-kept secret of childhood sexual abuse.
She also is a TEDx speaker. Her TEDx talk is titled “Healing Sexual Abuse can start with one word.” You can watch her TEDx talk on YouTube.
