A Love Story
A Tale of Family
Learning to Forgive
How could I learn to love my family and myself after being raised in alcoholism, experiencing the hundreds of failed promises, rage, co-depency and lies my parents forced on me?
How will I ever trust that love has come my way and will last?
Won’t he abandon me?
If my own father didn’t care, why should anyone else?
I’m afraid to turn the handle to my front door for fear of what waits behind it. I crave intimacy, friendship, the closeness of two. I want out. And I will get out. I’m working toward Stanford and have just the plan to get noticed.
As just as determination sets in every vein in my body, just as I have come of age, I am noticed by someone who is mature, exciting, and seems to promise everything I’ve dreamt of. Can this be real?

Pamela Taeuffer, Biography
My passion is writing books that tell a love story and family saga of leaving old fears behind as the characters embrace intimacy and transition to joy. My first series, Broken Bottles, details those fears of growing up in a family battling alcoholism. Along with the struggle and pain of a parent’s rage, I hope to reveal strength, intelligence, and survival. The challenge is to love intimately in all relationships. For children of trauma, it can take years to let another person come close. When they do? It’s like rainbows cover their heart.
Slowly, you’ll read how my characters become vulnerable, reach for deep, sensual intimacy, and try desperately to let go of their fears. They struggle and risk everything to trust others—and themselves. My stories are about daring to take the baby steps that let them really come alive and in every way, experience and give love.
MAKING MONEY TO CREATE: The property management and vacation rental company I run with my husband and son in Sonoma County, California allows me to have my creative life. I love where I live and work, and wouldn’t trade being born and raised in San Francisco. My father introduced me to baseball when I was six. I’ve rung a cable car bell, driven a streetcar and saw Jimmy Hendrix, The Doors and Jefferson Airplane.
WHAT I’VE DONE/AM DOING – IT’S A JOURNEY OF DREAMS: Broken Bottles is a four part series. Two books, Shadow Heart and Fire Heart are ready. Soon to follow are Jagged Heart and Amazing Heart. I’m honored to have 3 poems in an anthology called The Beats Go On, and a story in Sisters Born, Sisters Found. I have released the first book in a series for introverts called, The Introverts Guide to the Galaxy: Attending Conferences.
My Dream? To create beautifully decorate and custom journals with gorgeous paper that accompany with each book series: The Introvert’s Journal, A Family Saga Journal, My Body’s Journal, and Trauma: You Can’t Stop Me Journal. Journaling was a lifesaver for me. I was in shock. You may be in shock. Don’t let that keep your heart frozen!
