Torn From the Inside Out
Given away to her aged Uncle Robert and Aunt Molly at age 3 ½, Sara spent ten years on the ‘flower bed of Eden’ being lavished with love and attention until death took its toll and Sara married an abusive man named Thomas Niles when she was only 16. Niles invites us to enter into her lifelong odyssey by the words: 'Let the journey begin', and so it does as the reader enters into a formerly forbidden zone.
The story of Sara Niles becomes more than a story of one woman's journey into pain, it resounds with the voices of the many veterans of domestic war. Torn From the Inside Out celebrates a power greater than death itself, the power of the human spirit under fire.
“Thunder rattled the windowpanes two stories high and lightning split the sky, it was as if the whole world was in turmoil that night. My nerves were keyed up as tight as piano strings and in a sudden moment of stillness and silence it felt as though my heartbeat was amplified ten times over. He was over a hundred pounds greater than I; nearly a foot taller and I knew he could move his muscled body into unbelievable sprints. Rain started falling in torrents, while the storm raged outside. I was not afraid of the storms of nature; it was the storm inside this night that I knew I might not survive”
…February 13th, 1987, the night of Sara Niles’ flight with her five small children.

Lost In Time
View Art in the Art Room
"Great Art is born from the inner passions of the Artist, bred from deep within the creative vision of the rare individual who comes along only a few times per century. Ashanti the Artist possesses the originality that marks a great artist, along with the masterful skills of realism similar to that of William Morris Hunt of the late 1800’s and the creative surrealism of Salvador Dali, whose innovative approach dominated the 1930’s"
Excerpted from Ashanti The Artist
The Face of Dysfunction
Healthy families beget healthy families and sick families beget families with many of the same sick dysfunctions that they experienced as children. Young boys and girls whose family role models were womanizers or man-users usually womanize or abuse and dispose of men, those whose models drank, usually have a substance abuse problem and those who grew up with hurt, pain and abuse usually inflict it upon their families in the same measure, over fifty percent of the time, or they may invariably find a partner who inflicts pain upon them. There are a rare few who escape this repetitive cycle, even though they were raised in it, but they are the exception. Many will marry the negative image of their parent or their opposite in an attempt to recreate what 'love' felt like and looked like to them as a child.
....No matter how the child interprets it, when the family model is corrupted then the copy is corrupted."
