Merel van Groningen is a pseudonym that I use to write my books Misleid and In mijn onschuld. This name is chosen to protect the new life I created.
My books tell my story as a fifteen year old girl and my personal experiences with sexually transgressive behavior. I change the names, but the books are based on true stories.
My first book Misleid (2008) tells the story of how I got in the hands of a loverboy/pimp . It takes the reader into the world of loverboys/pimp and how they work. In 2010 I wrote my second book about abuse in a youth institution. Since then I am primarily busy with interviews, education and awareness in schools and libraries. I tell about my past, the traumatic experiences and consequences of certain choices.
One of those is the choice nót to be a victim or to stay a victim of your past. That gave me the opportunity to work with a lot of adolescents, parents and institutions related to youth and abuse. Beautiful, fulfilling work, but very intensive.
I have seen, felt, how adolescent behavior can lead to very dangerous situations. It is not only in sexually transgressive behavior, but on many levels that puberty gets children into trouble. I travel the country to teach, talk about and work with sexually transgressive behavior.
