I'm PISSED that 4 decades of my life was wasted believing in a greedy, science fiction writing, lying, sociopathic m*th*r f*ck*r named L. Ron Hubbard.

I have journals, calendars and diaries of my entire life. I inherited tens of thousands of photos my mother took. When I close my eyes at night the truth of my experiences plays over and over and over. What happened to me is happening to other kids and I hope to share how it all went down and maybe, just maybe, it will help shut this cult down completely.

Or at the least give another person the courage to tell their story adding to the web of TRUTH that is being uncovered about scientology.

I want to write it all, clear the air, answer questions…tell the truth!

They helped push my mother to her death sooner than she should have. I’ll give you the facts I know on that and I might need help legally confiscating the 100’s of file folders in HER WORDS to prove it. 


You’re used to being entertained for free. I get it. Me too.

Back in the day an artist would have special people rise up to help so they could focus on their art. I don’t know who commissioned Michelangelo or Leonardo Da Vinci (and I’m certainly not comparing myself to them!) to paint the Sistine Chapel or the Mona Lisa but they had to eat and put a roof over their head and SOMEBODY or some PEOPLE threw them a bone or two of support.

Here is how Leo, Michelangelo and I are the same: we want to under promise and over deliver. I have a vision to bring to the world. I need the pressures of responsibility and commitment to stay driven to the finish!

That is why I could use your help.


Writing takes time. Most of it is silent and thinking. I cannot write AND manage all of the jobs I currently do to make ends meet. I’m no slouch!

Currently my income sources are all over the place: I resell clothing online, I sell toys in person or online, I help small businesses with marketing creative and basics to be visible on the WWW, I walk dogs and pet sit plus I take care of all of the domestic work: cooking, cleaning, our own animal care, errands…doctor appointments…you get the picture I hope. I’m up at 4:30am and go to sleep about 10:00pm every night.

Oh, and to keep my mind in good condition I try to exercise every single day and eat home cooked meals (saves money)!

Being a writer means I need to READ as well!

I have attempted to find better employment and/or a stable full time job having applied for at LEAST 100 of them! My last employer was willing to pay me $15.13 an hour but would only give me 16 hours to 20 a week. After taxes I realized: I AM WORTH MORE and cannot survive there. I gave 2-weeks notice and left on professional terms. I was a Cashier, if you wondered.



Once, for half a decade, I was a General Manager of an international software company’s US Offices, I was the VP Sales at another software company for a decade, I have written and produced newsletters since the 80’s, I am an accomplished photographer (though rarely paid… because I’m a wimp asking people to pay me), I helped launch and run a small business successfully for over a decade.

I AM VALUABLE but in the world of applying for a job today…you have to at LEAST check the box that says you COMPLETED HIGH SCHOOL. A few people suggested “they never check” but I CAN’T LIE. I can’t do it. I won’t do it.

Why can’t I check that box? That whole period of my life I was locked behind a barbwire fence while guards with guns patrolled the entire compound and I was forced to serve L. Ron Hubbard against my will. I didn’t graduate High School! Last year I got my GED in Provo Utah. I cried in the parking lot realizing how much time has gone by and how LITTLE I knew. That feeling fuels my desire to make this book happen AND make it a success.


I’ll make it worth it to you for your support, just check out the different options and see if one wets your whistle. I want to make this journey FUN for you and me.

My goal would be to build my crew (you) to 1,000 kind human beings helping me in some way.
I have four decades to write about…which is more than one book. For now, to start the fire inside me, I just need to get ONE of them done.

Currently I spend 1 hour a week writing and my goal would be to earn enough to get rid of every job but pet care and walking dogs (I love this job so much). If I could invest 20 hours a week in my book I know I would complete it before the end of the year 2019!



In the end I know my story will help make anyone that reads it avoid being sucked into a cult and ruin the chance at opportunities to make the world a better place. I firmly believe this.

Technically you supporting me is helping so many people neither of us know.
Come on board!



Come on board.

Be a part of my quest to unleash a story that will make strangers lean in for more and help others that escaped share their stories. You will be like the parents we lost forever. That’s a big deal.

Thanks, Love and Namaste,

Sarita

Wait...what!? Cool beans!

As corny as it is: I love the idea of rainbow unicorns.  They are a dream come true and so is your support on this tier.  Thank you so much!  Along with everything above you will also get a copy of my FIRST EDITION PUBLISHED BOOK when it is done, autographed of course.  You will also get a poster of my finished book cover when it is complete autographed by my family.   I am already planning a special dinner and you will be invited to join me and my family in celebrating the completion of it.  I'll probably be a blubbering mess of happiness and my mascara will for sure be running with tears of joy and thankfulness...so much gratitude.

Goals

When I make it to $500 per month I will remove one of my 5 jobs completely.  This means I'll be at 6 hours of writing a week! That's 20 hours a month!  PROGRESS!
