My name is Charles Vandersnick and my wife Marcia wrote Hazardous To My Health-The Marlboro Man I Knew. Marcia was abducted in the early 70's along with her two small children in Hawaii by Claude Hall, the third man to be used by Philip Morris in the famous Marlboro Man advertising campaign. She was kept hostage for four long years and watched by Claude's Samoan body guards at all times. It is an appaling story, one that will leave you asking how in the world could something like this happen?

Bravo, Marcia!
It takes a lot of courage to be able to tell such a sensitive story. I know, I share one with her. I have to admit, many times while reading her story, my own fears re-surfaced.
I think domestic violence is a subject that still does not get the attention it deserves. We need to help the women who are abused, because in actuality, the system doesn't. So, turning a blind eye, as they say, is not helping anyone. Too often that is exactly what people do.
I'm so glad I read this story. I
