: Peedie William
Liar:Liar: Pants on Fire
Liar:Liar pants on fire. There are so many verses in the Bible which are not preached from the pulpit, and no wonder. If they were, churches would have more empty pews than they do now. This is an honest, and in parts, comical adaptation of some of the chapters which are deliberately missed out in sermons. I have not written this book to change the readers mind, nor to invoke hatred or violence. Nor do I dislike any religious believer, or worshipper, who believe in any of the different Gods in the World. I wrote it in the futile hope of someday understanding the conflicting viewpoints. I have tried to decipher some of the verses contained in the Bible, but this has left me confused. My quest to find God has still not been fulfilled, nor has the longing to find answers.
Back to Turmoil: The darkness within me (The sequel to Stanley's Coat Book 1)
Peedie William takes the reader with him on his journey as he finally leaves his abusive home aged twenty one. He is still living the terrible nightmares of his violent abusive childhood which are still etched like tattoos in his mind. Unable to cope with real life, he turns to drugs and alcohol to try to cope. He drifts from place to place trying to find sanctuary from his past, but ends up making things worse by turning to violence like his father did. He ends up back in the same psychiatric asylum he was in when he was a boy. His story follows him as he grows into a man with a purpose in life, and shows how your past does not have to destroy your future.
Peedie William was born in 1956 in Kirkwall on the Scottish Island of Orkney. Peedie lived through and beyond horrific child abuse. This book tells of his brutal beginnings when he is only four years old when his mother goes in to hospital to have baby number three. Peedie’s clothing was stripped off and he was hung upside down on a hook on the back of a cupboard door by the ankles, and beaten with his father’s huge hands, then taken down once he stopped screaming and then almost drowned in a bath of cold water. Even as he was held under the water thrashing about and fighting for his young life, he could hear his drunken father laughing at him. His abuse and ridicule follows him through his school years, and has a major impact on his mental health. The family grew until he had six siblings all living with him in a two bedroom cottage. Peedie was never acknowledged as a son by his violent drunken father. This is the true story of a childhood lost, and the struggles to overcome the mental anguish afflicted on him throughout his young life. This story will take the reader on a painful journey as Peedie moves with his siblings around Scotland, from house to house, and school to school, always just evading the authorities who could have helped him. Peedie eventually gets admitted to Sunnyside Royal Psychiatric Hospital when he was only fifteen years old where he has to endure barbaric electro convulsive therapy. This story leaves nothing to the readers imagination. There are some lighter moments throughout the book which will make the reader laugh, but his story will make you wonder how he survived to tell his story, and what can happen behind closed doors.
