My Journey Through Darkness

Dedicated to Mom and Dad. Without your love I would not have been here to tell the story.


I have kept a diary since I was about twelve. I got the first one from a school friend. I only filled about five complete journals during my adolescence, as I wouldn’t write daily. However, in the pages that follow, where I have inserted the actual diary entries which I wrote while I was addicted to drugs, I wrote more fervently than at any other time.

I feel it is important to know that the parts of diary entries (in italics) are UNCUT AND UNEDITED reality. These were the exact thoughts and feelings I had at that time and not a word is added or left out. As I began to copy my journal onto the computer, I surprised myself at how it was a story in itself, but still felt the need to add a few facts afterwards. There were people and situations that played a big role in this story, and without them, the true message would be missed.

Take a walk with me now, down a road that may frighten you – it definitely frightened me! Once you get to the end, it is my hope and prayer that you may have learned something and perhaps find what I found; what amazing grace is all about!

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

Bernsigns: This is an age old story, but with excellent plot twists that I didn't see coming. I truly liked how the story slowly, but steadily revealed the secrets. There were secrets I didn't expect, which kept me wanting to read. I always love a happy ending, with a little bit of real life mixed in. Th...

Sinhala-Kella (aka Scandal Mania): Hey Fazio, I LOVED your story! The bus - I don't watch Grey's but that was vividly shocking! And the last paragraph where you said April was engaged to one man but rushed in to save another. It was sooo cute the way Jackson won April back - there were so many lovely bits - 'Shonda' (LOL!).You nee...

Jevron Macalino: You started the story after Chuck Vs. the Fake Name happened and I like your version more than I like the original one. The five or so episodes after the fake name should not have happened that is why I like your version better. I hope you will continue writing Chuck & Sarah's story from where y...

Janaki Sundararaman: The frame of the story has a beautiful structure on which the narration is spun with twists and turns tolook forward with lots of expectations about the coming chapters.There are many characters in the story line,all woven into intricate style to speak the story in its own way.The protagonist is ...

Deleted User: I've only read so far to the first two chapters, but I already get that thick, underlying meaning of dark romance--which is good, because it sets the tone, with a hint of danger. However, some parts of the writing did come across as a bit dull, and I personally think that starting a second chapte...

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...
