Description


This is what happens when true crime hits close to home.


Kevin's mother was emotionally abusive and resented him, though she did her best to protect him and his brother from their father -a violent man who inherited his own father's evil, sadistic, possibly even pedophiliac traits.

In the summer of 1980 Kevin found himself in the "care" of his paternal grandfather, on the same day the man abducted an 11-year-old girl with the sole intention of raping her.

Kevin tried to stop him, and nearly died for getting in the way.


And she wasn't the only little girl.


I'm Supposed to Make a Difference describes how Kevin fought a grueling, decades-long battle against long-buried memories to overcome suicidal feelings, depression, and self-loathing to develop five principles for moving forward and normalizing trauma: be steadfast; be goal-oriented; find good people; accept help; and focus your anger.


Today, Kevin's largely conquered his demons-and shares the strategies he used to heal and transform.


I'm Supposed to Make a Difference is a riveting, emotional read for fans of true crime docuseries and those who appreciate the transformative power of the human experience.
