CLARKSBURG, W.Va (WDTV) - The Progressive Women’s Association and the Young Women’s Association held a Spring Craft Bazaar outside the Uptown Event Center.

President of the PWA, Rosalyn Queen said this was the first of many events the group was planning.

“We’re just coming back after the pandemic and coming back strong. We know we need to do these things. That’s what we’re trying to do,” she added.

Local author, Sarah Hayes was also at the event for a book signing of her newly published memoir, “Invisible Monster.”

“A horror story, but then it has a very happy ending. The theme throughout the entire book is surbvining and thriving,” she said.

Hayes was diagnosed with PTSD roughly five years ago and started writing as a part of her therapy.

“Writing really helped me. I feel like if people read my story it will help other people too,” she said.

She added despite the trauma. She had a unique story to share.

“I was born in a log cabin with no electricity or running water. I used to bathe in the creek. I was potty trained in an outhouse. I lived in a teepee. I just had all these crazy interesting experiences,” Hayes said.

“Invisible Monsters,” was available to purchase on Amazon.
