From Hollywood to parish ministry, Once Upon a Nightmare: Through the Looking Glass of Narcissistic Abuse is a moving memoir that tells the tale of how a pastor's quest to fulfill the simple dream of “happily ever after” turned into an upside-down wonderland of narcissistic abuse, lies and federal prison. Through her artistic lens, the author delves into the complexities of her relationship, revealing the psychological dynamics of narcissism and its impact on her spiritual journey, including how the church both helped—and hindered—her recovery. The accompanying illustrations capture the essence of her emotional struggles, mirroring her quest for healing and self-discovery. Weaving together faith, fairy tales and art, this is a haunting tale of what happens when your Prince Charming becomes the villain in your story, and why one should never settle for Prince “Good Enough.”


Not just another memoir!

“Once Upon a Nightmare is a sometimes-terrifying but ultimately hopeful ride through the real life of a Disney writer turned pastor and happily-ever-after-seeker who finds happiness, but not until after a marriage story much too dark for Disney.”
