Lynette Davis is an editor, nonfiction writer, and memoirist. Her memoir Even Rain Is Just Water draws attention to emotional child abuse and narcissism’s mounting prevalence as she joins the growing number of people speaking out about the ill effects of such relationships. One of the hallmarks of narcissism is a lack of empathy which gives rise to emotional abuse.
Davis received her B.A. in English from California Baptist University, Riverside, California, and has facilitated writing workshops in the Inland Empire, California. She has also studied Rhetoric and Composition in the English Graduate Department at California State University San Bernardino.
Her short narrative, “The Fatal Blow,” is featured in the anthology I am Subject: Women Awakening: Discovering Our Personal Truths Fall 2014, a collection that features stories of women re-claiming their lives in life-altering moments.
