About P J Larue

PJ wrote poetry in high school, but she discovered writing children's books and short stories later in life. Her writing inspirations are hiking, photography and environmental consciousness, but she links these interests to much larger social issues. A person very close to PJ was molested as a child, making PJ passionate about providing child safety tips. And, PJ was bullied in the third grade by girls much larger than she, who demanded that PJ give them her lunch money. As a result, PJ is committed to spreading the word that bullying must be stopped. One of PJ's goals is to help educate children, parents and caregivers, in a fun way, using her children's book series, The Mystic Princesses. Because PJ loves to travel, the princesses will visit many locales, learning about environmental concerns along the way. PJ has been happily married over 30 years although there are many reasons why her marriage should have failed. Some of those factors are that her parents divorced after a long and sometimes abusive relationship, that her father is an alcoholic (now sober for many years), and that she married at a very young age. She broke the domestic abuse cycle by marrying a kind and supportive man. During 2013, PJ wrote a blog post called "How I Escaped the Domestic Violence Cycle." That blog post can be read on her website www.pjlarue.com. After the website designer and other friends who read the blog post encouraged PJ to write more, she wrote After "I Do!" A Marriage Map a short advice book filled with anecdotes from her own marriage.
