Dorma McGruder writes from living a lifetime love of written and spoken words, whether telling her story or the story of another. After suffering and praying in silence, conquering a 10-year abusive relationship, Dorma McGruder put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard, and voice to microphone to remind others that they are not alone. Sharing parts of her life and helping others express theirs, gives them power to overcome the impossible! After 50 years she continues to comfort, strengthen, lift, encourage and teach others by writing and speaking about what she has gained, lost, struggled with and won – through her poetry, articles, stories and continued book publishing. Her parents were avid readers, demonstrating the power of reading and writing words. Her heart and writing remain focused on helping others reveal, unwrap and use the power and authority that is inside of them. Whether they need to heal, transform or listen, Dorma’s pen and computer stay ready.
