WHEN EVIL CAME TO STAY
This was without a doubt one of the most heartbreaking and chilling stories I have ever had to write, but I feel truly honoured that Lucy's lovely and incredibly brave mum Stacey entrusted me to tell their story. Lucy was groomed, systematically abused and then murdered by Stephen Nicholson, whom the family had invited into their home out of the kindness of their hearts. I have nothing but respect and total admiration for Stacey, and the way she continues to fight to raise awareness of grooming and abuse in the hopes she can prevent another parent from suffering in the same way she has every day since her beautiful daughter was killed. Lucy's story is available to read in this week's issue of Take a Break magazine.
