Why Forbidden Family was pulled from publication
The book Forbidden Family by Joan Wheeler is nothing but a book of lies. On the copyright page, is the following statement: “This is a work of non-fiction: the events are entirely true to the best recollection of the author. Nothing is imagined or fabricated.”
In reading this book, I came across many many lies. About me, about various members of my family. I started this blog to refute these lies. In December 2010, a complaint about this book was lodged to Trafford Publications, who printed the book. In January, 2011 they requested we send them proof of our allegations of slander and libel.
I do not work for, nor know anybody who works for the publisher of this book. I have no power to stop the publication of any book. It is up to the publisher of a book to cease publication and cancel the contract IF the author has violated certain conditions. In speaking with the publisher on Monday, May 9, 2011, the publisher told me that yes, the book contained many slanderous and libelous statements, as well as not having the proper authorization to publish a certain photograph on the back cover, as the author did NOT have copyrights to it, nor permission to use the photograph. The book also contained hate language and obscene language, both prohibited by the terms and conditions that the publisher requires. Joan violated the terms and conditons set forth BY THE PUBLISHER, not The Three Sippel Sisters, collectively, or individually.
If Joan Wheeler’s precious book got pulled, it is due to the gross misconduct of only one person: JOAN M. WHEELER. That’s what she gets for LYING and stealing MY photograph.
