San Francisco, California--(Newsfile Corp. - March 8, 2024) - Known only as COLEMAN, the author of Misery in Missouri shines a light on injustices in the court system and what it's like to believe in your own innocence even when no one else will listen. COLEMAN hopes that her work will inspire others to live wholly in spite of tragedy, hardship, and blame.

In Misery in Missouri, COLEMAN's life is upended when she's accused of endangering a child in her care after a fatal accident. The prosecution claims she was negligent; COLEMAN insists she lost consciousness from low oxygen, a condition validated by her doctor. But when it's one person's word against the power of the criminal justice system, the courts yell louder. Suddenly, the community isn't sure who to trust, and COLEMAN's otherwise upstanding life as a volunteer, retired veteran, and registered nurse seems to count for nothing.

Adult readers who appreciate tell-all memoirs and understand the complexity of criminal cases will connect immediately with COLEMAN's haunting story. Reviewers commend the "great storytelling" in Misery in Missouri, stating, "Innocent until proven guilty does not happen in our justice system-unless you're well connected."

Instead of lashing out at those who accused her, COLEMAN focuses on her own personal growth and redemption as she starts a new life. She encourages readers to forgive others, follow their hearts, and keep moving on even in the darkest times.

Misery in Missouri is available for purchase on or wherever books are sold.

COLEMAN is a retired veteran with 20 years of military service and a former registered nurse. Her final court appearance was on January 5, 2024, when she took an Alford Plea that accepted a guilty judgment with a protest of innocence. She was sentenced to 10 years with 5 years of probation. COLEMAN now lives and writes in South Carolina.
