Decorated author Jeni Duell shares her story of surviving decades of domestic abuse with her new book “From Night to Light”. Scheduled for a Summer 2016 release, Duell hopes her story will help give those trapped in abusive relationships the inspiration and empowerment needed to overcome them.
No stranger to the written word, Jeni Duell has is a decorated author having produced short stories such as What Has Kenneth Done, The Sot of Bereaved Seas as well as several published articles. With most of her works being fiction, her announcement to releaseFrom Night To Light, an autobiographical piece centered around her personal experience with domestic abuse, shows a different side to this creative writer.
“Someone who was in my position doesn’t think they can get out.” Duell explains. Having been in an abusive relationship spanning over two decades, she shares first-hand how trapped a person can feel. “I didn’t think I could get out for 19 of those years. I was really trying to, but I didn’t think I could. I know that mindset. You’re just really stuck, like it’s a prison.”
With an average of 20 people per minute being physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States (source: www.ncadv.org) Duell’s story carries significant personal and social relevance. “It took me a long time to overcome what I was going though, but I want to help others see that [being trapped] isn’t the case. If I could relate to someone else’s experience, share what I went through and how I overcame it, I think that would really help a lot of people.”
From Night To Light is scheduled for release in Summer 2016.
