I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.
I am not a therapist, or counselor. I am simply a secondary English teacher who is trying to help other male survivors know they are not alone.
Here, on this site, you will find my blog where I explore what it means to be a survivor as I offer tools to help others while using comics the means of exploration.Here, you will also find access to books I have written to help other male survivors.
Heroes Villains, and Healingis a guide to help male survivors navigate the healing process and understand their coping mechanisms using DC comic superheroes and villains. It has won four indie national book awards.
How to Kill Your Batmanis an extension of Heroes, Villains, and Healing that explores the coping mechanism of hypervigilance using the first fifty issues of Tom King’s, Batman as an extended metaphor to heal. While the title may seem jarring, it is more about learning to heal your Bruce Wayne to become a survivor rather than a victim.
Raped Black Male: A Memoiris my own personal exploration of what it means to be a black male survivor in today’s society of growing racial tension.
The material on this site, and my books can be used to help recover from PTSD without being a male survivor of childhood sexual abuse. Although this is true, I continue to write for male survivors because I am a male survivor and for most of my life I felt alone in my trauma. This is because male survivors of sexual abuse are often ignored and made to believe they do not exist. I do not want other male survivors to feel this way. Writing specifically for male survivors helps to foster a safe community for male survivors to know they are not alone and it is okay to heal. Creating this community allows awareness of male survivors to be recognized.
