GLORIA EVELEIGH was a research metallurgist before a career change to social work. She designed and led the first local authority multi-agency framework facilitating the safety of vulnerable people. She has run a safeguarding consultancy and worked across the UK setting up community groups and training volunteers to support the recovery of victims of abuse. More recently she has served as Chairperson on her local Parish Council.
The mother of three grown up children and five grandchildren, Gloria lives on the south coast of England, writing and enjoying her many hobbies. She has written and illustrated 30 phonics-focused picture storybooks for small children and in 2018 published her first adult book in the form of an autobiographical novel entitled 'One Small Word' - Surviving childhood abuse.
In the 1940s and 50s, when child abuse was hidden, not believed, and not acknowledged, Gloria had first-hand experience of growing up in a dysfunctional family. She and her three siblings were the victims of familial physical and sexual abuse.
Gloria's aim in publishing her first autobiographical novel was to help others who had been the victims of child abuse to know for sure that there is hope of recovery. In this, the sequel, Gloria aims to help recovered survivors of child abuse to continue to believe in themselves and build on their strengths as they inevitably encounter more bullies and abusers in the future. She hopes her own personal journey of small victories will encourage them to use the strategies they learned during their recovery process to overcome their future battles as she has.


Frankie is a survivor of familial childhood abuse. Whilst on a work placement as a mature social work student at the age of 50, she had learned how her childhood experiences of abuse had affected her adult behavior. She was able to recover from the abuse and gain some insight into managing her reactive behavior into the future by using the one small word, 'No', that she had used to stop the abuse as a fourteen year old. This book continues with Frankie on her life's journey from the age of 50 to the present, when she learns just how many bullies and abusers there are in the world and finds ways to cope with and overcome the increasingly complex situations that she faces.
