Book Review of Mildred Muhammad’s Scared Silent

Scared Silent: The Mildred Muhammad Story by Mildred Muhammad

 

victory

Scared Silent by Mildred Muhammad is one of the most riveting true stories I’ve ever read. While I was reading Mildred Muhammad’s novel, I kept thinking to myself, there’s no way that this could actually be someone’s true life story. There’s no way that this could be real. In reality and in truth, this is a true story of a woman who overcame more in the years of her life than most of us could even imagine.

Mildred Muhammad tells her story of how she came through darkness into the light while married to the “D.C. Sniper”. John Muhammad was a killer, and she was married to this killer. Unbeknownst to her, she was his intended target. He wanted to kill her. Mildred Muhammad is a true survivor, a loving mother, and an advocate for women who are threatened by domestic violence.

Her story is inspirational and educational. There is much to learn about survival, the many forms of domestic violence, victims, true crime and the meaning of true love, self love in Mildred Muhammad’s novel. It’s an absolute page turner. I finished this book in just a couple of days. If you have some time and wish to learn about the true survivor behind the silence, pick up Scared Silent by Mildred Muhammad. I recommend this book to therapists, survivors of domestic abuse, and fans of true crime novels.

Scared Silent is available on Amazon.com – http://www.amazon.com/Scared-Silent-Mildred-Muhammad-ebook/dp/B002S5NOVM

Room On The Shelf

Everyone has a story to tell. We all have thoughts and feelings. Therefore, we have the right to express ourselves.

Do you like to read? Are you a lover of books? Whether you are a fan of fiction or non-fiction, you can agree that it’s hard to put down a good book that has an intriguing plot.

So what’s the deal with the war over realism and fantasy? Does it really matter if your imagination craves the tales of vampires, werewolves, and unicorns? As opposed to, if you enjoy reading stories of struggle, survival, and coming of age. Do you really have to choose to be a fan of one particular genre?

Reading is essential for everyone. We should be encouraging more people to pick up a book to read. We shouldn’t judge the book by it’s genre, but by it’s content.

As a writer of realistic YA-fiction, I can honestly say that I enjoy reading a variety of books of different genres. Classics, thrillers, fantasy, coming of age, tales of endurance and survival, and even some humorous poetry all have a place on my bookshelf.

It’s the same with writing. We, as writers, should stick together and encourage one another. Writing should not be a competition. No matter what genre each of us write, we should support each other.  All of our stories are not the same, and that is a good thing. How are we to encourage others to read, if there isn’t a variety of different stories to peak our readers’ interests?

The truth is, we all have a story. We all have a voice. We all have something inside of us that needs to come out. That is why we write. Therefore, we have the right to express ourselves with our writing talent.

Really. Where is the competition?

Whether we are vampires, werewolves, detectives, cowboys, aliens, or real people who live in a fictional or non-fictional world there is room on the shelf for our stories. Writers, let’s support each other in being heard. Devoted readers will make room on their shelves for all of our incredible stories.
