Katie Beers is a married mother of two, currently working in a family-run insurance business. As a profoundly neglected and abused child, she was kidnapped and locked in an underground coffin-like box for 17 days. The kidnapping of Katie Beers made worldwide headlines in late 1992. Katie, at the centre of a national media storm, dropped out of sight 20 years ago. Katie has a Bachelor's degree in accounting and lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband and their two children. This is her first book.
