October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month-Featured Author ^ DARLENE GREENE

October marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
A time devoted to addressing a social ill that plagues countless women--from all age groups, religions, educational backgrounds and walks of life. Though in lower numbers comparatively, men and children are victimized as well.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, every 9 seconds, a woman is assaulted or beaten in the U.S.

In an effort to empower and educate women worldwide, author Darlene Greene, has penned a powerful book that serves as both a memoir and self-help book, "Blood Relatives."

In fact it is when domestic violence hit home, (through multiple murders of family members), that she was inspired to write the book, and open the doors to Ina Mae Greene Foundation.

IMGF is a  Not for profit that provides crisis management, resources and outreach services to battered women in need of shelter, food, job placement, and a helping hand to start a new life.

Greene hopes that her efforts will break the cycle of silence surrounding domestic violence.
Because,"domestic violence hurts everyone."

Her new novel, "Big Momma Didn't Tell me This Would Happen" is slated for publication in 2016.
