While the Covid-19 pandemic has confined most of the world to some form of lockdown, it has also confronted us with the horrific truth about the pandemic of gender-based violence. This self-help book is for every person dealing with domestic violence and sexual abuse, not only in South Africa, but around the world. We remember all the victims of abuse who have been silenced by death.
Women and children are being raped, abused, stalked – and murdered – but are expected to keep quiet about this. We can no longer accept this as “normal”. Statistics tell us that more than half of all murders worldwide are committed by partners. Husbands, wives or relational partners suffer the worst abuse.
These stories are told anonymously to protect their identities and their safety. They have shared their stories willingly, in their own words, from their perspective. And they have done so with love – hoping that sharing their stories will make a difference to yours. May these true stories inspire you to find your voice, face this onslaught with courage, and overcome it to live a free, healthy life.

Maria ES Prinsloo is iemand met passie vir woorde en skryf. Sy is gebore en getoë in Pretoria, is geskei en het gaan nesskop in die Laeveld. Sy het twee kinders en vyf kleinkinders. Haar kinderboek, Storieland, is as oudioboek gepubliseer en is gevul met vier lekkerluister kinderverhale. Sy het eers verskeie boeke as skimskrywer geskryf vir bekende internasionale skrywers.
Dis ná hierdie manuskripte dat sy besluit het om weer op haar eie skryfwerk te fokus en so het Bloed en Modder ontstaan. Sy is tans besig om nog twee manuskripte te finaliseer. Alhoewel sy baie lief is vir positiewe selfhelpboeke, is geweld- en moordstories haar eerste keuse.
