Author of Shattered Masks, Lyman Montgomery III, shares his story. Lyman’s is a story of abuse and sensory confusion. Imagine living in a world where the words people spoke were seen written on walls as well as translated in your ear? Imagine if that world included teachers that abused you and teachers that saved you, a parent that supported you and a stepparent that frightened you? Would you have what it takes to succeed anyway? If it were your child that these things were happening to would you be the supportive parent or the frightening parent?
