MICHAEL, Little Boy Black & Blue: Surviving the Effects of a Poisonous Child Abuser

“Michael, Little Boy Black & Blue: Surviving the Effects of a Poisonous Child Abuser”

ISBN-13 979-8701820690

The inspiring survival story of a Mississippi boy who experienced decades of abuse and torture at the hands of a maniac! Michael, Little Boy Black & Blue, chronicles the life and the experiences of an LGBTQ+ youth who endured unimaginable mental and physical abuse and violence starting at the age of five, in the early 1960s, continuing through the gay movement and Anita Bryant years of the 1970s, the AIDS epidemic, and its backlash of the 1980s and beyond, which resulted in Michael’s development of severe complex PTSD, BDD, and other health conditions.

Michael and his mother were both brutalized by a lumbering 6’8″ violent man who took extreme delight in his own insanity, brutality and cruelty. “Punishments” continued through high school, and Michael’s early adulthood. He takes you with him during some of these horrific events and he describes exactly how he feels while experiencing these things, but he puts enough humor in to his writing to make it less painful, and he lets you know what he was really thinking while being brutalized. When he fell in love with a school mate, all Hell broke loose, and a life was lost.

​Michael refused to be bound by his past, but he found that it had a way of catching up to him when least expected. His, is a story of pain, loss and torment, but it also serves as an example of hope, perseverance and resilience.  Through his journey, he was able to overcome the temptations of suicide, drugs, sexual abuse and torture to become a successful artist, a teacher and a miniaturist, all while searching for someone that he never knew he had lost. He wrote this first book as an exercise in healing and coping, but he discovered that he could share what comes from a mind that adapted and developed differently with others. If you have ever felt different from others, this book is for you. Go on the journey. You are safe. 18+

  • Hugh-Beth Knott says, “I threw it away when I saw it was about a homosexual. Then, I seen this homeless man dig it out of my trash and started reading it, so I ran out there and snatched it back. I read it, and I liked it pretty good, but its got some egg and coffee grounds on it now.”
  • Juanita Sistance says, “I like the religious parts the best but everything else he wrote about better.”
