Steve Briggs was born in Blackpool in 1966 and ‘Tall in the face of Adversity’ tells his story. He grew up from humble beginnings within a military family. Briggs endured years of child abuse from his former schoolteacher and Peter Righton, one of the founders of PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange) in the 1970s.
Briggs enlisted in the army and served for several years. He was wounded in action and discharged from the military. Briggs has faced many obstacles in his life. He had lived as a homeless in London for a few years, but his fortunes changed and he built a business from scratch.
Steve Briggs finally faced his abuser in courts forty years after the incident.
Briggs’ unbiased account will bring tears to people’s eyes about the incredible bravery of a soldier and the scars he bore for years as a child abused by people that should have protected him.
‘Tall in the face of Adversity’ is available from the 2nd of August 2020. The memoir is available worldwide.
