"About the Authors" from Memoir KIDNAPPED TWICE
PART VI. ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Mary Seaman (her maiden name) grew up in small towns less than a hundred miles north of New York City. After her parents divorced, her mother returned, kidnapped her, hid her down South. A year later, her father kidnapped her back. After a brief period of a pleasant childhood, Mary was abused repeatedly by her father’s second wife and to a lesser extent by her father. She has worked ever since high school at a variety of jobs, including ten years as an officer in the local police department. This memoir describes the challenges she has faced, some of which she has overcome, and her responses to them.
