Jeri Massi is the author of the Schizophrenic Christianity, Secret Radio, the Peabody Adventures series and the Bracken Trilogy. In 2003, her novel VALKYRIES, published by Moody Press, was nominated for the Christy Award.

Although she began her career writing fiction, in 2001 Jeri set aside fiction writing to pursue justice on behalf of victims of clergy sexual abuse in Christian Fundamentalist churches. She continued to research and document these abuse cases for 12 years. She is now transferring her comprehensive knowledge of this tragic culture of abuse in a series of non-fiction books.

And now that she has grown up and moved away from BJU Press and Moody Press, she has dusted off her computer and is once again writing fiction.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tracey Jacamuzzi's story is told with passion and plenty of humor, but there is a gut wrenching quality to the narrative that makes it a page turner from start to finish. -- Indiana Home Schoolers
