Jenny Tomlin suffered horrendous neglect and physical and sexual abuse throughout her childhood at the hands of her father. This harrowing story is told in the number one bestseller "Behind Closed Doors" and the heartrending follow-up, "Silent Sisters". Jenny has campaigned on behalf of fellow victims of abuse for charities Barnardo's and Refuge and she is a passionate believer in the absolute necessity of encouraging victims to speak out and others to listen to them and believe their stories. It is in this spirit that she has brought her own story together with other powerful, inpsiring, horrifying and humbling tales of resilience, courage and sheer determination to escape victimhood and embrace a better future. These are the testimonies of Jenny's heroes.
Jenny Tomlin educated herself to A level standard and started writing a few years ago. She is now happily married and living in France and has just finished working on the second part of her extraordinary life journey. Her most fulfilling roles have been as loving wife to Alan and mother to her children - celebrated actress Martine McCutcheon and her son LJ - giving them the stability and love she never received herself.
