M.J. Payne, a graduate of the University of Kentucky Honors Program and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, has completed her new book “The Remembered Self: A Journey into the Heart of the Beast”: a gripping and potent tale about unspeakable horrors perpetrated by a father on his young daughter.
According to Payne, “I never thought I would share this story with a living soul. It has been a secret for so long, even from myself. The memories were like a wet bar of soap gripped tightly that jets out of hand in the shower. It turns out that slippery memories have a life of their own.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, M.J. Payne’s unimaginable tale is based on a true story that begins in rural Northern California, where a small girl grapples with a psychopathic father who abuses her himself and traffics her to a pedophile ring centered in a mansion riddled with secret rooms. The father participates in punishment rituals of nonpaying clients and lives on the funds generated from this and trafficking his daughter.
The child’s mother works at night and is unaware of what horrors are befalling her daughter but knows her husband is dangerous. The mother and daughter flee from the father, chased by him and by a huge truck. As the girl matures into adulthood, she is overcome with ghastly buried memories, as they emerge scene by scene, and she fights for her life while being pursued by demonic creatures in her dreams.
Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “The Remembered Self: A Journey into the Heart of the Beast” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
