The tragic tornado in Moore, Oklahoma on Monday, May 20, 2013 left many victims in it’s wake.
There is an immediate and urgent need for donations and assistance.
Because Susan Murphy Milano spent a lot of time assisting with unsolved cases in Oklahoma, ImaginePublicity and Ice Cube Press will be donating all profits from the sale of her books until June 1, 2013. Many of the families she worked with were very close to the storms that devastated Moore, Oklahoma. These families meant the world to her, often welcoming her into their homes and treating her kindly.
Susan’s books address a storm of another nature, the tornado within a violent family. She was born into it, she lived it, and she survived, going on to become one of the nation’s most outspoken advocates for victims of violence.
Within her books readers will learn about her personal life, the chaos of a family behind the closed doors and behind the badge and gun of a police officer father. Just as deadly, the death tolls from family violence reach well beyond those from mother nature each year, yet when help is needed, often funding gets in the way.
By purchasing Susan’s books, not only will you be assisting the relief effort in Oklahoma, but you’ll also be contributing to the assistance of individuals caught in the path of family violence.
Holding My Hand Through Hell
Order the book directly through Ice Cube Press and profits will be donated to the American Red Cross. (*orders made through any other book retailer will not be included)
Based on a true story written with the flow of a novel, with frank wisdom and wit, “Holding My Hand Through Hell” encourages the reader to immerse themselves into this family’s life and become an advocate for change. It will incite discussion, debate, and heightened awareness about hope, survival, abuse, murder, and its impact on our society. In the end, it will leave readers applauding this woman wondering how she escaped, sometimes at the eleventh hour and now 20 years later, realizing that God, after all was holding her hand through hell, delivering her from the evils of her life in order to save others.
Foreword by Diane Fanning
Susan Murphy Milano’s last book, released just weeks before she died, is a “true crime memoir” recounting the how and why she did what she did to help abuse victims. She wasn’t able to save her mother, but countless others were saved because of her unique style and the risks she was willing to take to keep them safe and alive.

Excellent narrative and a very timely reminder of the similarities in the types of devestation.-.one via natural forces..another via the human destruction of which people are capable. I also thought too of Susan’s heroic efforts to right the wrongs of a corrupt medical examiner system in Oklahoma… Major accomplishment there on many levels!
Please buy her books for your local public library too…. it would benefit so many! DRG
