This week we’ve had seven stories published in five different magazines – a very busy week. We’ll talk about some of them in their own dedicated blog posts – including a Christmas special, so if you’re already feeling festive watch out for that! But here we’ll show you three, published in That’s Life magazine and Pick Me Up.

NAILED! TEXT MESSAGE JAILED MY RAPIST DAD

Sinead, 35, was repeatedly abused and raped by her army veteran father, David, between the ages of 11 and 22. A decade on, Sinead was determined to make her dad pay for what he had done and sent him a text, issuing him with a stark ultimatum. It worked. David confessed to the sickening crimes and Sinead finally had the evidence she needed. Last year, he was jailed for 13 years. She told her story to That’s Life magazine.

SOBBING BRIDE CATCHES BUS HOME

Joleen, 31, and her fiance John, 30, beat alcoholism together. But the night before their big day John turned to drink to calm his nerves. He arrived at the wedding, drunk. He drank all day then disappeared after the pair’s first dance. Fed up, Joleen caught a bus home – alone. John promised to get help and Joleen forgave him. Now approaching their first anniversary, the couple hope to renew their vows – sober.  Their story is in this week’s That’s Life too.
