Born and raised in Wilmington, California, Terri Wycoff left home when she was 18 only to discover that life wasn’t all she planned it to be. She became a mother at the young age of 18 and that’s when the struggle began. At the age of 19 she got really heavy into drinking and smoking marijuana because she was trapped in a brutal, abusive relationship. At the age of 25, her drug use of crack cocaine started because of her own curiosity which lead to eight years of hard learned lessons and experiences. The devastation of drug use and living in the streets is what inspired this book. She has expressed how very important it is that people read her story to prevent themselves from going through the same life altering decision. She hates drugs and what it did to her and prays that this book reaches every inch of the earth in every attempt to discourage the use of all drugs.
