Interview on YouTube Kay Corbett Calla Lilies

I recently was interviewed by Dianne King on Channel 10’s “On the Go With AAUW” in Fairfax, Virginia. It is a half-hour interview about my book, Calla Lilies: A True Story of Four Sisters and Their Struggles to Survive Abuse, Addiction, and Poverty in America. The interview covers many social issues that we need to address in our society today including childhood physical and sexual abuse, lack of education, lack of health care, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse in order to cope, the injustices of the penal system, and poverty to name a few.

Just go to YouTube and put in Kay Corbett Calla Lilies.

Calla Lilies A True Story of Four Sisters and Their Struggle to Survive Abuse, Addiction, and Poverty in America by Kay Corbett

This is a true story of my four stepdaughters from a previous marriage. Their stories include heart-rending accounts of physical and sexual abuse in foster homes and spousal abuse in marriage, the unwarranted loss of children, living on the inimum wage, and repeated ER visits resulting in pain-medication addictions.Their lively and impassioned personal conversations read like a novel but are absolutely true.

My website for the book is Please take a look. I am also on Amazon and Kindle.

This blog site will mostly be about the social issues we face in our country. Many of these issues relate to the Calla Lilies. Some of the discussions will cover other social issues–articles and information I read about each day.
