Forbidden Family by Joan Wheeler on Google Books

my review of Forbidden Family on Google Books

It should be noted here that this book was pulled from publication by Trafford Publications on May 9, 2011 due to its slanderous and libelous nature. The author lied to the publisher that only truth was written. Copies of actual court documents from harassment cases involving the author were submitted to the publisher as proof of the slander contained in the book. The author changed only some names, and left a footnote referencing an article written in the 1980’s that contained real names, thereby leaving a clear path for anyone to find out true names of individuals in the book.
The author also lied to the publisher in saying that she owned the sole copyright to a family photograph on the back cover. The photo was of me, my parents, and my siblings – taken the year before the author was born. The author does not own the copyrights to this photo, nor obtained my permission to publish my photograph.As this photo has been widely distributed amongst various family members in the 1950’s (and the author used her true name), again, it is not hard to know just who the author was writing about – there was no protection to conceal identities in this book.
This, along with the readily proven slander in the book, showed the publisher the true intent of the author – a smear campaign against people in her life who ever disagreed with her or angered her.
This book will never be printed – the author has been showed not to be a truthful person.

to those who missed it – Joan put forth on her website that when we birth sisters of hers published our names on our blogs, we invalidated any privacy we may have expected from concealed (or not concealed) names.

The point is: we did put forth our true names, yes, but that was our conscious decision to make and we do not make any monies from our blog. Also, the photograph in question is readily available online on my personal facebook page in one of my photo albums, and on my Picasa/Google online photo albums. And again, I make no monies from this. The photograph was put on the internet by me, to SHARE freely with other family members.

The difference is – Joan Wheeler used MY photograph on a book that was to make monies for her. Joan Wheeler violated copyright laws in doing this. She did not obtain written permission from the four living individuals in the photograph (two of those pictured were deceased at the time of publication, and one more has since expired).

If Joan Wheeler wishes to gain a monetary income, then she had better seek gainful employment, and not try to seek monies from the story of MY life – she had events of MY life that had nothing to do with HER adoption, our reunion, or her adoption reform work. And she lied about those events.

Because she violated copyright laws, failed to protect our identities in a book that she was seeking income from, and slandered me and others in her book, her book has been killed.

Joan refuses to accept the reality of this. Six months after the book has been pulled, she still continues to promote it on her website. She still has a page called “About and Buy” with a link to the page that Trafford Publications used to sell the book. The page was removed by Trafford on May 9, 2011. The book canNOT be bought from them. Why does Joan still keep that page and the link to a non-existent sales page? Because Joan is delusional and canNOT and will NOT accept that her book has been killed for very good reasons.

Joan is her mental illness continues to insist that there was nothing wrong with her book. If that is so, why is this book not being printed? There is very much many things wrong with this book – Joan just refuses to admit it. She wants to save face, but all she is doing at the present time is showing the entire world what a delusional person she is. She has been found out – black and white evidence was shown to the publisher and posted on this blog – yet Joan still says she did not lie.

Only a mentally ill person contnues to insist they did not lie, even when ABSOLUTE proof is presented that they did lie. Only mentally ill persons continue to support Joan when faced with those same ABSOLUTE proofs.
