New Autobiographical Novel Unearths Author's Abusive Childhood

The Birth of Violence by new author Ronjon serves as an inspiration for others to overcome abuse and adversity

CONCORD, Calif. (MMD Newswire) March 6, 2009 -- The Birth of Violence follows author Ronjon's footsteps during the first 21 years of his turbulent life of child abuse, military school and a life of crime. On these life challenges, he says, "Some people write about it, some people live it and some people do not make it."

Ronjon hopes the autobiographical novel will act as a sort of manual for parents on "what not to do to their children and what the results might be for that child if they do," he says. "They have to remember that a child is not born bad, but becomes bad from the way that he is raised."

Although the story of his first 21 years were rocky, Ronjon overcame hardship, learned from his consequences and became encouraged to write about his story by his English teacher at Diablo Valley College. "My first thought was, ‘How can a person that spent four years in the seventh grade even dream about writing a book?'" says Ronjon. "... But my teacher kept telling me that I could do it. He instilled in me the confidence that I needed to take this project on, and here we are."
