Psychologist Pens New Factual Fiction Novel: Accused
Punxsutawney, PA – Psychologist, Dr. K.L. Scott releases her new factual fiction novel entitled Accused, a story about a troubled child trying to get his life back on track.
Have you ever met a five year old runaway? Meet Ryan – a southern boy who never had a fair shot at life. By the time he was eight, he had run away and been caught 54 times – needless to say, he didn’t care much for orphanages.
Being labeled a delinquent troublemaker, Ryan quickly became the fall guy for any crime the local police department couldn’t solve. Ryan’s life changed forever the night the police stormed his makeshift home on vagrant row and arrested him for murder. Although he was a minor, he was bound over as an adult. Worse, he had no alibi, was not granted bail, and was assigned an attorney who had never won a case. The verdict? Life.
Incarcerated in a Southern prison camp he was rapidly stripped of all of his dignity. As the years passed, he became spiritless, unsure of what disgrace tomorrow would bring.
The Accused Trilogy tells Ryan’s story.
