About the Author

Nikki DuBose is a former model, host, and commercial actress who has appeared on the covers of and in editorials for magazines such as Maxim, Glamour, Vogue and Vanity Fair. She is now a writer and public speaker. She is an advocate for mental health and uses her experiences to connect with others.

Washed Away: From Darkness to Light

Nikki DuBose recently turned her career focus towards writing, public speaking, and mental health advocacy and draws firsthand experience from a long-standing battle with childhood abuse, sexual victimization, self-harm, addictions, eating disorders and various mental health issues. Her articles appear regularly online for The Huffington Post, the National Eating Disorders Association, Eating Disorder Hope, Recovery Warriors and Clinical Addiction Recovery Institute (C.A.R.I.).

Her recovery story and advocacy work have been profiled on CBS Los Angeles, People, The Inquisitr, L.A. Weekly and Esquire, among many others. In addition to writing, speaking and advocacy, Nikki is pursuing her degree in psychology, with the goal of one day obtaining her Ph.D.

With the help of James Johanson, who is a strategy consultant and the author of The Road to Wellness: Mastering Mind, Body and Environment, Nikki brings her story to the world with her personal memoir in Washed Away: From Darkness to Light.

Washed Away: From Darkness to Light is an incredible story of one brave woman’s perseverance in the face of daunting life circumstances. Nikki DuBose details her chilling experiences with an eating disorder, childhood sexual abuse, alcoholism and drug abuse – and how she found the strength to rise above and find recovery. This powerful read will inspire those in their own recovery journeys.” —Kristina Saffran, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director at Project HEAL

“I was truly amazed by her determination to live life. I saw a woman that had every reason to quit and remain silent, but she chose to break through every obstacle that challenged her. I am very grateful that she has taken on the challenge to not only speak about her experiences, but to fight for change in laws that will empower children and survivors to protect themselves. We all need to learn from Nikki and use our voices to create positive change. It is no longer okay for the silence to outweigh the tough discussion. Ignorance will not stop child sex predators from harming our children.” —Matthew Sandusky, Founder & Executive Director of Peaceful Hearts Foundation, Author (Undaunted: Breaking My Silence to Overcome the Trauma of Child Sexual Abuse), Speaker

On his 40th birthday, community college teacher Eldred Duker feels he’s getting older faster and faster. Childless, he and his wife Marie visit the orphanage he and his now-estranged sister Anne lived in as small children and, as Marie has long wanted to do, end up adopting six-year-old Hope. Hope is sexually assaulted at age 16. Herself molested by one of their mother’s male friends as a child, Anne comes for a visit to help. After Hope is on her own, Marie is killed in a car accident. Slowly at first, Duke starts losing his grip on reality. He seeks revenge on the man whose vehicle killed Marie, looks for relief of his pain by taking a yoga class, falls in love with the instructor Rachel, marries her, sees his daughter Hope married to Dirk and helps Rachel bury her mother. During these years, Duke’s judgment deteriorates. He causes a car accident that kills Rachel, starts drinking regularly and tracks down the man who killed Marie to forgive him and thus himself. Hope and Anne eventually realize that he is no longer capable of taking care of himself and place him a Continuing Care Retirement Community. There, when ER tests given after he breaks a leg reveal that he has a fast-acting fatal disease, they move him back to his old home. Having separated from Dirk, Hope moves in to take care of him and arranges for hospice care. Along with her now-adult children, she and Anne attend his death.

Henry O’Day, a lawyer-planter widower with a teenaged daughter, owns a small plantation on the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee in 1860. He secretly is a part of the Underground Railroad, sending runaway slaves north. While he is on a journey to Jackson, Mississippi to rescue a slave woman (the wife of one of the Negroes on his plantation) who has been taken from Crossville, Tennessee to be sold, Republican radicals in Congress are planning to pass punitive legislation which will ensure that plantation owners who continued to keep slaves after President Lincoln announced the Emancipation Proclamation will have their lands confiscated and given to their former slaves. In addition, the owners will be sentenced to a period of servitude on the land under the control of their former slaves. Henry’s life becomes more complicated after he meets a middle-aged woman who stops over in Crossville, with her aged parents, on their way from Vicksburg, Mississippi to Oberlin, Ohio, where she is an instructor and assistant to the President of Oberlin College. After Karen Melaney is accused of being a Union spy, Henry convinces the trio to stay at his farmstead until the matter is resolved. The characters experience many adventures and travels throughout the war-torn south, and other parts of the country, via horseback, mule, stagecoach and steamboat. Henry’s trial before a military court set up by the U.S. Department of War for owning slaves, and the impeachment, conviction and removal from office of President Andrew Johnson culminate in Henry’s representation before the United States Supreme Court of slave owners who have been tried and convicted under the Slaveowners Redemption Act. A ferocious battle among counsel and members of the court takes place as Henry attempts to persuade the tribunal that the Constitution of the United States is not the organic law of the land but is superseded by cosmosean law.
