Tell us a little about your latest book?
My book is memoir with an academic backdrop of the term, Scapegoat. It is 380 pages filled with personal hurt as a scapegoat, my losses and gains, how scapegoating presents in society and the clinical and theological approaches that can be well-utilized to help the scapegoat sojourn through this very nuanced and subtle yet damaging form of abuse.
