About the author (2006)

Terry Henley is 53, married to Angela, a dedicated carer. He has a scientific and electrical engineering background with a degree in science. Having gone through a divorce, he is in an excellent position to write on the subject. After hearing what other people were going through, he decided a book should be written on the subject of stepchildren who take things too far. Having brought up his own stepchildren, he knows only too well the pitfalls of what can happen and how children can be effected by a marriage break up.

It takes time and effort from the stepparent to get the trust and respect into a family that was once naturally there before the break up occurred.
