I am offering a free copy of my memoir, Starving, today (up to 24 hours, US only) if you subscribe to my Christen Bensten author site here. It’s basically a newsletter that I have that updates once a week or once a month on books and what I’m working on. I have a novel coming out this summer and I’m excited to share it!
Like all of us, I am a writer amongst a bunch of other things. My memoir was an opportunity for me to grow and heal. I feel so much better having told my story. If you have a story about pain in your life, tell it – speak it, write it, get it out of your body. I cannot tell you how releasing the story out into the world helps. It takes away the shame, the sting and forces you to see that you are not alone in your experience.
Then, I thought, let me try my hand at writing a novel. Like most writers I have a portfolio of short stories and poems that have been published, but never a novel. Now is the time. I hope you like it and come along for the ride! It’s a thriller and there will be a series. Eek! So excited.
So, to get your free copy of Starving:
I will message you privately on the Christen Bensten Author Facebook page for an address I can send it to you.

Thank you I can’t wait to read your story. I can certainly understand. My husband of 45 years molested my 2 grandchildren. My granddaughter is struggling. We all are. The trauma never goes away. The last person anyone would have suspected. He is now in prison for 30 years which will be all his life . None of us have any communication with him. This is the 7 th year
Oh Wanda. I cannot begin to imagine what you and your family are going through. Thank you for being open and talking about your pain.
