Europe denounced him as an international terrrorist. His adopted homeland of Armenia decorated him as a national hero who led a force of men to victory in the Armenian enclave of Mountainous Karabagh in Azerbaijan.

A Brother's Journey by Richard B. Pelzer
Log In. Les Pockell associate publisher at Time Warner is now my editor. Sales for A Brother's Journey are picking up in the U. In situations where the same publisher has bought both Dave's and my books, I have had some advertising restrictions on the Pelzer name since Dave's books were there first. I also have a web site, RichardPelzer. I feel bad today for what happened, but I know in my heart that it wasn't Richard who deliberately caused Dave to suffer. It was the only way I, myself, could survive under the constant fear of death from my mother.
I feared for many years that if he ever saw me he'd come after me. It's very odd, but I don't know him as my brother.
We're trying to take her along at her own speed. I have four more stories I want to get out there, two nonfiction and two fiction. I have learned I do love to write. It's a great way of using the mind, and it's rewarding. Before taking on this project, I worked in the financial field in Boston, processing federal tax returns for investors on the New York Stock Exchange.
Now, I'm a starving artist. On my second failed attempt when I had reached rock bottom, a woman named Darlene Nichols, who was married and had six children, took me into her home.
I watched TV with the family, ate with them, helped the kids with their homework. I began to realize that I was smart, fairly good looking, and that I had value.

That family gave me what I needed and I could put the past behind me. Without that one event, I would have ended my life. I hated everything and everybody. I was hooked on heroine and drinking heavily. I was trying to destroy myself. Yet the kindness of this one person turned me around. I learned that one small kindness can save a life.
A BROTHER'S JOURNEY by Richard B. Pelzer | Kirkus Reviews
If A Brother's Journey can do that, then I will have repaid my debt. I have also completed two fictional works that I'd like to publish: Karen's Garden, a love story, and Apparition , a ghost story. I see that despite all the pain my brothers and I endured growing up, something good can come out of it. Eighty percent of the cases never get recorded. For every 1, children in the US, I want people to know that they can walk into any high school in America and 10 percent of those kids will be living in abusive situations. Walk into any grocery store, pick five kids and one will be abused.
