DANGEROUS ANIMALS IN THE HOME
My Abuse. The Bigger Picture.
Dangerous Animals in the Home is the true story of a woman who, on the surface, has it all: a successful business, popularity, loving family and friends.
But beneath the surface, there is much, much, more.
This story—ground-breaking in its honesty—aims to dissolve the taboo surrounding the subject of paedophilia, and allow other victims to start a conversation.
The antics will have you laughing and crying, but most of all they will make you stop and rethink the subject of abuse in the home.

Honest, candid, raw, hilarious, heartbreaking, real are words to describe Karyn’s autobiography.
I’ve been privileged to share Karyn’s writing journey. She has shown what vulnerability is. While on the surface vulnerability may seem a weakness, it is not. In fact, it is one of the strongest positions you can be in.
Karyn shows through her book that vulnerability means you are not afraid to open up, to share your fears, wounds, and flaws. To be brave and share your story which she has done. To have empathy and to speak out creating a ripple of change throughout communities.
As you read you will enjoy the rollercoaster of emotions; sometimes crying, at times laughing. Enjoy and share Karyn’s story to open up conversations for change.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
KIND is a big word.
Let’s stay strong and grow together.
Those that know me know I have dyslexia. I tend to use my dyslexia to make excuses for my off-beat ways.
Other people’s energy really ignites me. I love the ability to empathise with others in every way for instance. When I feel someone is second-guessing themselves and getting lost amongst many, I like to hold their hand and help them to show themselves.
It’s sometimes the quieter people in the room are the most surprising with so much to share. Asking that person in the corner a conversation opener as simple as asking – “what do you think?”. I want us all to be part of the group and not be left out.
I’ve been a hairdresser for 36 years and love it. So many dream to be a mum; my aspiration has always been to take the role of ‘big sister’ - inspired by my own siblings.
Being this ‘big sister’ has taught me to be really open-minded and to connect with the better side of myself. Being comfortable in myself and knowing and loving these girls, these ‘little sisters’ who are choosing lessons and doing the beginning of life. Through knowing myself I can see the full picture of the good, bad and ugly. I can accept them as a whole person which is one of the most empowering in any relationship – to have total acceptance.
Exciting is the many things my ‘little sisters’ teach me in return. Through their fresh eyes, they give me a new perspective and way of thinking which keeps me fresh, feeling younger and challenging for me to keep growing. This makes me feel so good knowing these lessons are going both ways.
Now my ‘big sisters’ in my life have taught me how to open my eyes plus they keep me grounded. They give me inspiration; direction and they are the ones that have taught me how to be a good ‘big sister’.
My ‘big sisters’ accept me for who I am; my good, bad and ugly. I have so many in my life to whom I am forever grateful.
I’m now on my new journey, not letting my past define me.
It is now time to share my story, not for sympathy, blame or to point the finger.
I write because I feel I must.
My journey to now has been tumultuous to say the least and it’s my time to reach out to others, for us all to make a difference.
To remember we always have choices.
The great thing about this part of my journey is I’ve now found my heart’s purpose.
I’ve found my why.
I would love you to come on my journey with me and make it our journey.
Together we can make a stand and reach out in empathy. Creating this wonderful ripple effect of touching lives in positive, supportive and understanding ways.
To share our message loud and clear across our nation and the world.
