Pattie Welek Hall welcomes Don English, author of"Enlightenment of Evil." Don shares,"When my mother passed away, I decided I wanted to write a book that would tell the story of how she and I miraculously veered off the road to hell and survived a life filled with abuse, alcohol addiction, arrest and conviction. The road to hell was paved by my older psychopathic brother with his evil-minded ways. Before my brother murdered a man, before he was sentenced to life in prison, before his girlfriend accidentally died by falling out of his moving car, before he was incarcerated for mugging old ladies, before he stole our father's car at twelve years of age…before all of this, he was my big brother, someone I trusted. Even though he was a person who threatened to kill my father, raped me, buried me alive, and beat the hell out of my mother and me. And still, I wanted a big brother; I wanted him to love me. How crazy is that?
That is all in the past. Today things are as they should be. My brother is locked away for life and I finally have the answers I have sought my entire life. Answers to why he did the things he did to me. Why my parents were oblivious to his pernicious deeds, and why it took so long to free myself from his manipulative evilness.
This memoir is Don's story, the journey, and the answers. It will shock, surprise, illuminate and keep the “fact” checkers checking for days. But in the end, all will know—it is absolutely true. All the unbelievable coincidences and events really did happen.
