The White Witch of Wimbledon is about my Brtish friend who has been a polio victim since she was a toddler, spent her childhood in an iron lung, then was whisked away in a coach with hundreds of children from London in advance of the anticipated Nazi invasion of England. She endured an abusive childhood in additon to her handicap, but with true courage she survived. Doreen morphed into her Celtic and Rommany Gypsy heritage and became an outstanding psychic.
The White Witch of Wimbledon is the story of a very special Cockney lady who overcame a life-long physical handicap, pain, abuse and separation and neglect from her parents. She pulled herself up by her own bootstraps. She raised three children as a single mother. In this book, she shares her dreams, goals and faith in God and good people. A true Gypsy, Doreen never waivers in her love of family, children and animals. This is a story of inspiration for everyone dealing with a physical handicap or abuse, neglect and a loveless life. Doreen reaches out and draws you into her world and her heart.
About the author
Recently retired as an attorney with The Florida Bar after 21 years of practice. I went to law school after more than 20 years as a Miami newspaper writer, editor and columnist. I spent a few years in Washington, D.C., as a research assistant for the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Crime. I interviewed witnesses for Congressional hearings and wrote reports and speeches for the Chairman, the late Honorable Claude Pepper. I co-authored "Sex and the Senior Citizen" based on 1,000 interviews with senior citizens, a book which led to a change in the Social Security law. My co-author and I sold the play rights and "Sex and the Senior Citizen" was the basis for an off-Broadway play.
