Our prisons, mental hospitals, and streets are filled with tragic stories like Tuesday Storms.

Her childhood was riddled with torturous "games" and violent physical attacks. She was isolated from the rest of her family, locked in an attic with nothing but a bare bed and a bucket for a toilet, and fed just enough to keep her alive. The experts say it's next to impossible to find the soul's light in a dark past like Tuesday's.

They say she'll never trust again after being betrayed by the people she loved most, or silence the voices inside her head telling her she's worthless and unloved. She's doomed to suffer a lifetime of depression and self-destructive behavior, and destined to be drawn to people who will again abuse her, or worse--she could become an abuser.

That's what the experts say. And the thing about experts is--they're usually right. Call Me Cockroach is a chilling reminder of the unfortunate truth that no one survives the devastation of severe childhood trauma unscathed.

For those of you who've read Byrne's compelling debut book, the Kindle eBook bestseller, Call Me Tuesday, this memoir unveils what became of the gutsy little girl who spent her early years at the mercy of a sadistic mother.

To everyone else, it's an honest glimpse into the tormented mind and troubled heart of a damaged woman determined to overcome the debilitating aftermath of a horrific childhood.

About The Author:
Leigh Byrne is the author of two Amazon bestselling memoirs, the brutal Call Me Tuesday, in which she reveals her horrifying experiences as a victim of severe child abuse, and Call Me Cockroach, a continuation of her story that details how the psychological and emotional damage from her childhood trauma crippled most of her adult life and the daily challenges she faced in her struggle to achieve normalcy. In contrast to her turbulent past, Leigh, who considers herself semi-reclusive, currently resides peacefully with her husband in southern Indiana where she's working on a third book.
