"How To Productively Express Your Needs and Wants To Others": Sherlene's Published Book
Sherlene Stevens - 7/15/2015

I Am a Published Author In the Book Media Industry

The back of my published book expresses--
"Do you know a 'why' child who has grown into an adult? After reading this encouraging memoir, you will. Meet Sherlene Stevens. Through her insightful and inspirational book, written in a journal format, Sherlene discusses her life while growing up, and her experiences with the negative behavior of society toward large families."

She is a native of Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland—a rural area with small-town ideologies that functions with a hierarchical attitude toward business organizations and people of large families. Such cultural dysfunctions reinforces the traditional methods of the social boundaries. Overall, you will read of Sherlene's many experiences through a portion of her life in which she dealt with such attitudes and beliefs.

I am a known victim of absent-major college-enrollment fraud (formerly enrolled student, an existing educator, who was enrolled to receive teacher training to state teacher certification; discovered was actually a non-accredited major by the college accreditation overseers for all colleges in the location-site state), and I share my struggles of trying to complete such academic endeavors with you in my book. (Like how does that even happen?!) At first, I just wanted explanations of the strange activity involving myself. Today, I discuss such experiences with others who want to know my truths or life experiences, or have had similar situations---

First, before discussing my former published memoir title "A Journal of Forgiveness: A Script in My Box", I want you to know that I am the lady of color (initially head of my household as a middle-incomer in a disadvantaged Maryland area, rural USA) who did not know about public welfare programs/my state's welfare programs (local, state, or federal). I didn't know about the welfare systems (!); it took an abrupt divorce for my participation to begin, to initiate my personal experiences with such programs. My upbringing was of a middle-income family household composition.

Are you journaling? I have always loved to journal (diary, personal pocket calendar, etc.,), even as a young little girl growing up on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It was especially important for me to do so as I matured into a young adult: a professional occupation personal goal.

"They may not answer your question, but you're thinking; you're being productive to decreasing or eliminating useless dysfunction of some sort."

Never Doubt Your Reason For Asking "Why"

Have you taken the time to organize personal life events, situations, and achievements--your life's experiences box?

Publisher Version Is No Longer In Print: The Script in My Box: A Journal of Forgiveness

I selected a cardboard-box image for my book's cover (with Tate Publishing) because I had to move so frequently. After the separation and divorce actions from my high-school sweetheart--a divorce through no fault of my own--I have been a part of HUD's housing or rental assistance program.

The cardboard-box image is actually a visual symbol of my emotional expression to the culture shock that I have felt when having to pack up my belongings from one place to the next (i.e., the moving truck rentals, light items in strong black trash bags, and arranging heavy items to fit inside of labeled, brown cardboard boxes of various sizes).
I am a 'why' child now adult who like to ask questions while discovering my self-interests and learning. I went beyond my community's normal social boundaries, and became a Maryland victim of state fraud, waste, and abuse.

Memoir Photo Gallery
As noted in the publisher version:, I grew up in Kent County and Queen Anne's County, Maryland. These are counties of Maryland's Upper Eastern Shore. Kent County's major city is Chestertown. The Knickname of the State of Maryland is "the Old Line State." My home-state is so convenient to areas of Delaware, Washington, D.C., N. Virignia, West Viriginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New York. Back in the day, my home-state gave away some of its land to be used for a new socialization center for American citizens. Today we considered it to be our Nation's government symbol ... Washington, D.C. or the District of Columbia.
