Written and Arranged by Chip Deffaa Inspired by the life of — and featuring the songs of — Irving Berlin Berlin was a small boy when his family–with little more than the clothes they were wearing–fled Russia to escape religious persecution.

Champlin Michaels — Author

Posted on Feb 22, 2016 in Authors

Champlin Michaels, if he is anything, is a survivor. At the age of 5, and lasting until just short of his 12th birthday, he was exploited by a child pornographer. That man also shot him full of growth hormone, altering him physically and maturing him, beginning just before the age of 8, until by the age of 10, when he was as large in physical stature and as sexually mature as most 14-15 year old boys.

He was then enrolled in intensive therapy, including hypno-therapy, where these memories were buried deeply; so deeply, in fact, that at his high school graduation he was quite proud of the fact...
