Hi there... read your blog about VHP and why you left them.  The same thing has happened to me.  Thank you for coming forth with your story!!!  It meant a lot to see that I wasn't alone in my plight to get her to do the right thing.

Why Size DOES Matter
After taking my kids to school, I
usually saunter back into the house, re-fill my cup of black coffee so it’s
piping hot and sit down at my computer. 
First, I check my personal email, then my author email and then I open
Facebook.  I had just taken a sip o...

An "Action of Love" ...Not Really
I often wonder what travels through the minds of people.  I'm sure others wonder this about me as well.  It's human nature to be curious and to seek understanding.  I also wonder how it is that some people can so easily judge under the guise of "love."  How...

Lied, Defrauded & Falsified
I received tax information from my ex-publisher (Vanilla Heart Publishing) and couldn't help but laugh. Though she noted what she had paid me for 2013, what she failed to provide in this sloppily, hand-written W-2 form was any element of truth.  Book sales?...

What a nightmare, Susan! It's incredible how some people prey upon our natural tendency to think well of others to exploit and steal. I've just read "Spy the Lie," by Philip Houston, Michael Floyd, and Susan Carnicero. The on-going fraud at Vanilla Heart is, sadly, typical of many of the crimes and deceptions the authors – all former CIA officers – speak to. My daughter recently experienced something very similar to what you have gone through. It was her employer's money that was being stolen, not her own, but it still took her nearly two months to convince her employer that the "nice woman with six kids who all have health problems" (she actually had no children at all) was stealing them blind. Once the woman knew the jig was up, she disappeared (with all the money she'd stolen and all the office equipment she'd been supplied with.) You are absolutely doing the right thing by pursuing Kimberlee Williams legally. And you are also absolutely right that the excuses and plays for sympathy are nothing but lies and manipulation. I know you will prevail!

Story
Tagline
Author of Mystery & Romantic Suspense
Introduction
S.R.Claridge grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, graduating from Lindbergh High School and furthering her education at the University of Missouri with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. 
 
She began her writing career being published for her poetry, greeting cards and lyrics.  She expanded her craft into script writing and found her niche in the fictional world of mystery and suspense. 
 
S.R.Claridge says it is her degree in Psychology and her background in Theatre that help her write the spontaneous twists and turns that keep her readers guessing until the very end.   

S.R.Claridge thinks Friday nights are made for Mexican food and Margaritas and Sunday mornings warrant an extra-spicy Bloody Mary.  She loves a full moon and a Grey Goose Martini with bleu cheese olives.  Rooted in a strong faith, S.R.Claridge believes in forgiveness, in Jesus, in miracles and angels and in the power of prayer; professing openly that any good thing in her comes from God.  She believes in true love and that people can indeed change.
