Ready for Love with Nikki Leigh Love Coach
Empowerment After Domestic Violence with Author C J Cassidy
January 21, 2022
Domestic violence is a topic that is often swept under the rug and many people avoid talking about it. It is a topic that makes us uncomfortable. Maybe it makes us question things that have happened in our past – maybe it conjures up feelings of shame or regret or concern. My guest today tackles the subject in a unique way that starts with journaling and then goes in an unusual direction for the women he works with and his readers. It can be very empowering for many people.

So, let me tell you a little about myself…

Contrary to popular belief; I am NOT an erotic author. I write about the human condition. I write about women who endure trials and tribulations. I write about triumph over adversity. It just so happens…. They like to f**k a lot!

I started out as an unknown writer and my very first novel was picked up by a fan who asked me to write her biography. She was impressed with the way I told and set-up a story. I agreed. The subject matter was dark and moody as she was a victim of domestic abuse. About 100 pages into her story; it turned into a novel about BDSM. I balked. I didn’t wish to be known as someone who wrote those types of novels. I was convinced by my pastor to continue and I published my first erotic novel under the pen name; CJ Cassidy. Since publishing the novel; over 50 women got out of or redefined their abusive relationships. I am very proud of that. I cry when I get a card or a letter for a reader telling me that my novel changed their life. I am humbled by the path I have chosen.

I live in the shadows, writing about women in pain and their deliverance. In my public appearances, I wear a mask. I swore never to reveal the identity of my ‘Katherine’ and I wear it to protect my family from any backlash from my work. I have also helped other women write their stories as well. I like what I do.

And if you didn’t know… the novel is based on the lives and loves of three REAL women and the ACTUAL events in their lives! The names; places and time has been changed to protect the innocent and their families. Over 50 women have gotten out of or redefined their abusive relationships because of this novel. I’m very proud of that!

There is going to be a point in time where you’re going to say to yourself’ “I should have read this book sooner!”

Well… Get a glass of wine, light a scented candle, snuggle under your covers and we’ll see where tonight takes you!

“Lady Latex redefines the notion of what a woman with determination has to do in order to survive…”

“Jennifer X has the uncanny ability to incite raw passion in any man or woman with her Jenny ‘Mojo’…”

“Katherine Stark is the epitome of the ingénue, the damsel in distress… with a dark twist…”

“Nicholas Anderson is a sexual dynamo… He is the next ‘Bondage’… James ‘Bondage’…!”

“CJ Cassidy has truly brought sexy back with this erotic biographical novel…! Kudos!”
