She would not allow her future to be determined by the horrors of her childhood. She reached out for something different; there had to be more to life; if she could only find it. She had a dream of a life where pain and humiliation had no place. She was determined to find that life. Empty Chairs is the beginning of the journey. Now she is living the dream.

UPCOMING EVENT … BOOK 3 in the (Standing Tall & Fighting Back) series “Still Sassy at Sixty” Will be released in MARCH 2017
BOOK 2 in the NON-FICTION series is
“Faint Echoes of Laughter.”
The shocking and spirited sequel to the much-praised ‘Empty Chairs’. Life on the streets of Sydney was preferable to the nightmare Stacey Danson had survived in the hell that was home.
She hit the streets running at the age of eleven, and armed with a flick-knife and a fierce determination to live a different life, she began the journey from the 1960s to today. For those that came to know ‘Sassy girl’ in ‘Empty Chairs’, and for those caring people that asked how her life worked out from there, ‘Faint Echoes of Laughter’ continues the story.
For those that haven’t met her yet, this book stands alone as a tribute to the kindness of strangers, the loyalty of true friendships and the way things really are on the streets of any town …. anytime.

Ms. Danson plunges straight into the story and suddenly we are right there in the damaged container in the docks with her, meeting Momma and Cassie and Jamie and Baby Jenny and herself, ‘Sassy.’ All these characters emerge so deftly and subtly that it seems we have known them for a long time and understand them fully. This was one book which I couldn’t stop reading – I had to read on, to hear how they coped with Momma’s baby, to find out what happened next to these brave children whose independence was so impressive, and who lived together as so much more of a family than most real families, looking after and caring for each other. Ms. Danson’s courage in writing this has produced a book which is in a class of its own. Her courage and her writing ability both deserve the highest praise.
UPCOMING EVENT … BOOK 3 in the series of NON-Fiction works “Still Sassy at Sixty” Due out MARCH 2017.
