“Surviving Heartbreak Valley: Creating Proactive Stalking Self-Defense Strategies”

A true tale of horrific loss, "Surviving Heartbreak Valley" is the story of a woman who suffers the worst tragedy imaginable but finds the strength and courage to go on with life. Appearing on Oprah Winfrey Show and Diane Sawyer’s documentary.


Surviving Heartbreak Valley Fate can deal a cruel hand at times. Ultimately, it’s how we play that hand that defines who we are.

In 1989 Linda Fay Walls had put an abusive relationship behind her, graduated college, and was ready to start the next chapter in life. But in one hellish night everything changed. She came home to find her house on fire with her four young children trapped inside. The children’s father, Bernon Howery, a violent man who stalked Linda following their break-up, had ignited the blaze. In 1991 he was sentenced to death for murdering his children.

Linda became an outspoken advocate, conducting seminars, speaking to organizations and groups, appearing on the Oprah Winfrey Show and in a Diane Sawyer documentary, and dedicated herself to preventing what had happened to her from befalling others.

“Writing ‘Surviving Heartbreak Valley’ is ‘my next chapter’,” Linda said. "I want the telling of my story to add a real sense of urgency in building greater awareness of the domestic horror taking place in America, and our nation’s need to galvanize a crusade to prevent it.”

“Surviving Heartbreak Valley” is more than just Linda Fay Walls’ story; it’s a cautionary tale as well as a guidebook for others who may find themselves in the potentially life-threatening situation of being stalked.
