Marilyn Madden has a background in court reporting which paid off in describing the murder trial in her book. However, when she became disabled with the rare disease of polymyositis, her court reporting career ended, and she began writing. She is married to John Madden and the mother of two sons, Brad and Bryan Madden. She resides in Madison, Mississippi.
After Marilyn ran into at least four individuals in her past who she believed to be sociopaths, she became passionate on spreading the word of the sociopathic behavior. In fact, she wrote Sixty Shades of Sociopaths to warn society of the prevalence of the sociopathic disorder. They are all around us, waiting for their next victim.
It’s the millions of sociopaths living among us. they can be found among your family, closest friends, teachers, doctors, coaches, public officials, men, women and children.
During one of my blogger’s marriage to a sociopath, her mother in law, a sociopath, displayed an excellent example of the feelings of grandeur. She invited a friend from church to her home to show off her Christmas card collection. She also invited her to join them.
Immediately when she brought out her Christmas cards, her friend and she noticed that they were from the store shelves, the beautiful, personally-selected cards. Definitely, the situation begged the question: Why would so many people send this woman so many special cards?
She listened as her mother in law read out loud the handwritten names on every card, always adding how sweet so and so was to send her such a nice card. However, at about the same time, they recognized that the handwriting was the same on the cards. Occasionally a different colored ink pen was used.
It was obvious to both of them that this woman was touting her self-elevated importance as the recipient of so many beautiful Christmas cards from so many admirers.
