Pre-Order is $3.99

Sabrina continues her tragic and sometimes heartbreaking story, detailed in I Married a Sociopath: Taken to the Edge of Insanity my Survival Unexpected, into this second book.

Sabrina finds herself pregnant and married at nineteen, and for twenty years she is caught in a web of violence and psychological mind games. She divorces Peter, but his abuse and control continues—in a different way—her own daughters become the voice of Peter’s insatiable need to unsettle Sabrina and disrupt her life, creating chaos by twisting reality.
*****
Steven and Jo eloped after spending only a few weeks together—he was an established U.S. Navy SEAL—Jo presented herself as someone perfect for him. Jo was pregnant with their first child in less than a year, and three years later, a second. The relationship deteriorated quickly and as her psychological and verbal abuse escalated, Steven presented marriage dissolution papers to Jo. “This is not how it is going to happen,” she replied and made the first of dozens of false allegations.

*****
Steven and Sabrina meet in May of 2010 and they have an immediate connection—not only their chemistry but a curiously shared experience with whom they think will soon be their ex-spouses. While both go through years of litigation, they seek each other’s love and support in defending themselves against a legal labyrinth of unpredictable madness.
When Jo finds out about Sabrina, her rage finds a new target. Peter and Jo seek revenge together—their manipulations take on amplified intensity and fixation that neither had found individually. As Steven’s boys become teenagers, Jo arms them with the message that they, “can be a family again if Sabrina is out of the picture.” They absorb their mother’s malicious intentions and lock on to this task. How this manifests in them will take your breath away…

Book #2, Deadline and Publishing House

I nearly finished my second book last summer, but just couldn't get it done with all of the emails to organize and research for this book in only four weeks. My work at the University is too intense to switch from scientific writing and grant activities to my painful memoir so I had to put it aside until this summer.

I am back in Alaska focusing entirely on finishing and the editing process, enjoying some beautiful weather and good friends. When speaking to various audiences, my take away message for Book #1 is stop victim blaming and it answers the question, "why doesn't the victim JUST leave." This book is primarily about Parient Alienation Syndrome and answers the question (I hope), "why would a child hate their own parent and not want to see them?" And to counter victim blaming in this case as well.    

I've learned my critics up here think that I am paranoid and this blog is to blame everyone else. As I'm writing the book, apart from the blog, but reading over material from the blog I think there is something to that.When I get to Jo I rant and I am angry and it is in real time--not so much with Peter--I am more hurt and scared.  Those posts are more thoughtful and are included more in Book #1. But even Book #1 is very very different from this blog. Of course I leave out the most disturbing information and leave it for the book. Book #2 hardly includes anything from the blog and is more scientifically, evidence-based driven, with Jo and Peter pretty much telling their own story and proving my case.  

I would be dumb to take this blog down or delete anything at this point, having even one supporter. It's staying up and let the criticisms continue! 

I signed with a publishing house and will start the editing process with my publisher starting on July 12th. So I am really in it right now. And as with the first, when it is all in one place and I'm reading it over and over.....it is hard. I cried all day Sunday. I will be so relived to finish and hand it over!

Peter plays such a prominent role, this time with Jo, in even this book I've decided on the title: I Married a Sociopath Part II: The Conspiracy. But now it's not up to only me and we will see what happens in editing. 

 I will keep you all posted on the release date etc. Thanks, as always, for all of your support.

Author Speaks About Experience with Domestic Violence

Kayla Desroches/KMXT
A Kodiak resident shared her story recently as part of Domestic Violence Awareness month.
University of Kentucky epidemiologist, Sabrina Brown, who splits her time between Kodiak and Kentucky, published a book called “I Married a Sociopath.”
It covers her experiences with her ex-husband over their 20-year marriage.
She says during that relationship she worked within violence prevention, but it took her a long time to apply that same information to her own case.
“The worst part for me was – and I detail this in my book because it’s so subtle, can be so subtle – but the physiological, the gaslighting, making the victim think that they’re crazy, projecting what they’re doing, but blaming the victim. Those are all very difficult to delineate in your own mind as a victim. So, I kinda straddled both as a researcher and a victim.”
She explains how the psychological aspect can make it harder for the victim to come to terms with the nature of the relationship.
“Other victims in writing this book and blogging for five years have come to me and said ‘I wish he had hit me.’ Because then it would have proven to myself, it would have proven to others, kind of the CSI effect, where ‘Oh, now I have evidence.’”
Brown says her colleague eventually helped her reflect on her own situation.
“And I think you have to be ready to hear it too. And guess at that time I was ready to hear it. She said ‘I want to know what he offers you, what he contributes to the relationship,’ and I couldn’t think of one thing. He didn’t work, I was a human ATM machine just on a treadmill, just keeping me in chaos.”
Brown has since remarried and speaks about her experiences as a way to reach out to other people who have suffered domestic violence. She sat down with KMXT as part of this week’s Talk of the Rock.

Formal Book Review in the Harvard Business Review by Myron Stokes (Former Newsweek Correspondent)

 The Love of a US Navy SEAL Brought Her Back...                
                                                 Book Review
Frankfort, KY, June 14, 2017 - In the aftermath of absorbing the contents of this book, I was compelled to draw on my experiences as a former Newsweek investigative correspondent, which exposed me with disturbing depth and regularity to the darker side of humanity, from The Balkans to Pennsylvania. In my view, few people would have had the courage or the fortitude to talk about - let alone create a fastidiously compiled non-fiction depiction - of a life where as a little girl, Dr. Brown was subjected to continuous sexual assault by family members, but urged to speak glowingly of those abusers when questioned by authorities.  
"With Steve", Brown muses, "I was reborn at 39 years of age while simultaneously finding the love of my life. Moreover, he imposed his rigorous training as a SEAL instructor to my own discipline as a means of directly assaulting my demons, and taught me to expand my capabilities and limits of endurance through learning primitive survival skills in nature's most unforgiving locales such as Alaska and Montana. "
Recognizing she had no true protectors, Brown crafted a strategy of self-preservation that was/is astonishing in its effectiveness; especially when one recognizes few would have maintained their sanity, let alone completely revamping the architecture of her life to become a renowned University of Kentucky Associate Prof. of Epidemiology, a Counter-Terrorism lecturer, a mother, a mentor to young women and wife to a decorated US Navy SEAL.
I was privileged to spend time with Dr. Brown and her family at a remote horse ranch/retreat deep in the woods of Kentucky. A place, I might add, where one rediscovers their child-like sense of wonder. (Fireflies in the trees on a pitch black night have a way of doing that) Indeed, a perfect locale where husband Steve, seriously injured himself during an OCONUS operation, has brought veterans of multiple wars to reclaim their balance and sense of self-worth. For him, it is giving back in a long lasting way.                                 Steven Brown, Naval Special Warfare Basic Training Command

"
Steve could only smile when I remarked his first encounter with Dr. Brown must have been viewed as a Special Op...
                                                        
Publisher's note:
Dr. Sabrina Brown serves as Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and the Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center, College of Public Health, at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Brown is the director of the Kentucky Violent Death Reporting System, which is part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention funded National Violent Death Reporting System. As part of the project, and together with Kentucky coroners, Dr. Brown developed the statewide Coroner Investigation Report (CIR) and web-based system (the reports’ development and distribution are detailed in the American Journal of Health Behavior). 
Given the importance of death scene information for criminal prosecution and public health prevention efforts, more efforts are needed to discover innovative approaches to help gather death scene information and forensic evidence in resource constrained settings. Building upon the CIR, Dr. Brown has a proposal under review with the National Institute of Justice to develop, pilot test, and evaluate Death Scene Investigation Mobile Technology.
The DSI-Mobile Tech is proposed to be used as a non-linear checklist guiding the investigator(s) to best practices and giving prompts based on probabilities from previous forensic investigations and NIJ guidelines. This new forensic technology will promote uniform processing of forensic evidence at death scenes efficiently among first responders and will help death scene investigators gather and record information on precipitating circumstances of deaths, using a standardized guiding format to gain greater detail from survivors and witnesses. This will thereby improve the current standard practices and help compliance with the latest NIJ guidelines and protocol for death scene investigations.
