The paperback book, Every Scar Tells a Story, features life inspired insights from everyday characters who overcame adversities that inadvertently or unconsciously road-blocked their success. The real-life wisdom written in the pages are transformed through timeless stories that Victoria Mavis, a professional with a disability, tells of her journey to triumph over the childhood injury that caused her lifetime handicap and fostered the resentment for the life she could never have. Discover how she (and you) can rise above all hurdles through using your own approach of ableism to conquer and move forward with an empowered and engaged life as the disabled author and speaker, Victoria Mavis has achieved.

Nearing the end of the snow bank-lined block of Victorian homes, which have been converted into offices for doctors and lawyers, Liz spots her car, a white Elantra. The closer she gets to it, the angrier she becomes at Rhonda, with her catlike green eyes, for refusing to help her. She regrets asking Justin to introduce them and wishes she could just forget the whole matter. After throwing her crutch in the back seat, she gets situated in the driver’s seat only to find that she can’t see around the two vehicles boxing her in, a red Jeep Cherokee and a black Ram truck. Given her physical disability, she’s unable to twist her neck lest dizziness set in, so she slowly starts to reverse watching through her rearview mirror, hoping there’s enough space for her car to clear. She hears a thud; her left foot slams on the brake, and the nightmare returns with the jolt.

She imagines: the freefall that lasts forever … the thump of her body hitting concrete … warm liquid oozing … the color red. She shudders, frozen in time and tied to a tragic injury by sounds and images that have haunted her since early childhood.
