A Long Ten Years

I share a link to a video (see below) which we made ten years ago, in November of 2012. Nothing... has changed since then and in fact it has all worsened over time as Bret continues his ruination of us and our work and with the collaboration with Tracy Terhune. This video was made two years before my lawsuit was filed against Bret... which I won. Despite what Bret says or what I believed when I made this little video, my victorious Italian verdict was upheld in England. British law respected/enforced the Italian verdict and consequently Bret pursued his non payment of the damages all the way to bankruptcy.

He did sign an affidavit (which I have) with the court claiming he had zero assets and zero money, despite all of his titles in print... but the winning verdict still stands. I am proud of the case and the verdict and am also proud of our continued efforts to stand tall and make this story known.  Here is the video from ten years past:

  1. Read this comment Bret one of these days you are going to get the person angry. You who mock other people's pain, you will reap what you sow, but you will have no sympathy only contempt.

  2. Bret is one deranged and sick subhuman. Anyone who associates with him is just enabling his behavior, no matter what gender, race, or nationality he hides behind. The forum admins and their flunkies can pretend otherwise, but letting Bret saunter all over your Valentino FB page is a disgrace.

    1. I could not agree more. Imo it makes them all complicit in a great deal of bad behavior. There is plenty of evidence that they all know Bret's aliases. It was Cindy Martin who told us Albert Morris was Bret. I know Bret's history and knew many of the women he assaulted online on his blogs to a terrifying degree. I am by far not the only one. It frightens me seriously that unsuspecting women on those forums could be taken in by that man and find themselves vulnerable.

  3. I'd say life is too short. It's been years of anger and turmoil. I pray that all concerned may let these past hurts go and move on.

    1. I appreciate the prayer. And I would like nothing better than to let this go. Unfortunately your referring to it being a "past hurt" is incorrect. They continue to tell people outrageous lies about all of our work, sit in wait for our next book to come out and trash it with lies within seconds, they erase and censor any mention of our names or work in their Facebook groups. They instigate hatred towards us openly. I could go on. It is not a past hurt but this morning's hurt, yesterdays anger and tonight's trauma hearing even five words about us that are being spread by these monsters. What kind of tough people are we that we are still functional and happy people? I do not need anyone's prayers to be happy and enjoy my life. I have a rich and fabulous life with love, love, love. But you are correct it has been years of "anger and turmoil" but I am frankly blown away that anyone could not be as outraged about this as we are. Not possible to move on when you are still getting hit every day. It still hurts.

  4. Bret proudly linked to a very bad review of his Errol Flynn bio of fiction, saying it netted him a cool 6 figures #1) Since he has never had any good reviews, this is his only resort. #2) No one with one brain cell believes he has ever made any money from his collection of monkey poo called books. If he made 6 figures on his Flynn bio, those figures were 6 copper coins with Lincoln's head on them. And even those belong to Ms. Zumaya, according to the verdict of the court.

    1. He did not claim a single one of his "books" as an asset. Go figure. He still owes me a tidy sum which he rants and raves was dismissed. No it was not. That McNulty review was scathing and brilliant. Hard to believe he tried to exploit that for any attention.

    2. Had to admit it was good for a laugh.
