Wretch: Haunted by Shadows - Rescued by Jesus

Author’s review

My book is my story about being trafficked as a child and the effects of that experience. It's written from a Christian faith perspective and your editor, Virginia, not only provided exactly what I was needing, but also encouragement when she felt a particular point was well made. She is really the first total stranger who knows nothing about me to read this. It is not an easy story to tell, but it has to be told, because I found freedom from that hurt through the process I describe in the book. So, I am one step closer to publication now. Thank you, Virginia, for everything. I am excited and apprehensive at the same time. Virginia has made the process easier for me.

A short introduction

DECEMBER, 2016: MAITLAND, FL — Sean Wheeler’s new book, Wretch - Haunted by Shadows - Rescued by Jesus, ($14.99, paperback, 9781498486736; $7.99, e-book, 9781498486743) is the author’s powerful written testimony – a thought-provoking work showing how the author accepted that he could not change his past, but through Christ he successfully changed his destiny. He explains how Christ set him free from the great sadness of his past – resulting from being trafficked for sex over 4 years as a preteen. This book shows how Jesus did that in Sean, and how He can do that in other abuse victims or anyone facing harsh challenges in life.

Written with raw and honest emotion, the book is moving, sad and inspiring all at once. The author pours himself into describing his deepest struggles, and many readers will be able to relate. His describes the manifestations of his pain with gripping detail that will speak to fellow survivors of abuse who are also plagued with their own shadows.

According to Sean Wheeler, 1 in 6 boys will be abused verbally, physically, emotionally or sexually by the time they turn 18 years old. Tragically, Sean was 1 of the 1 in 6. He explains that too many people do not realize boys are trafficked in the United States, but this problem is coming to light in the national news. He wants readers to know that trafficking is not just a problem for girls, but equally as painful for boys. Sean hopes that by sharing his testimony, he can help to bring more light to this darkness. Today he speaks on behalf of those still trapped in fear. His goal is to bring a message of hope and healing through Christ.

“To understand there is nothing too big for God to overcome,” states the author. “I fought this alone for years without results, then Jesus found me and through Him I am finally, fully and forever free. Welcome to the school of mercy and grace! It's offered to all and I am living proof of His Word. Jesus says, ‘I will take what was meant for your harm and turn it to good.’”

Author: Sean

Sean Wheeler lived through being trafficked, beaten and all of the subsequent hurts placed on him from being taught lies of the enemy. Christ showed him that he was not made for that – that he was not created to be just an object for people to use. Sean no longer describes himself as only the left over shell of some kid used up a very long time ago. Today, he describes himself as a child of God. Over 11,000 people have heard his story and he will continue to testify wherever he is asked to do so.

Sean is a military veteran, who enlisted in the Navy and ultimately became a Naval Intelligence Officer and who spent 20 years in uniform. He has also worked as a television news writer and producer, and currently works in the public sector as a City Planner, and has degrees in both journalism and landscape architecture.
