FYI: I'm Not A Spousal Abuser...

 Hi again, Brian Joseph Johns here, owner, writer and digital artist of Shhhh! Digital Media (

I'm just dodging some sketchy rumours floating around locally and online and I'm letting you know that I'm not a spousal abuser and never have been, either physically, emotionally or verbally abusive to any of my romantic partners, all of whom have been women.

Its unfortunate that there are cults that attempt to transfer the responsibility for the actions of one ex-boyfriend onto other ex-boyfriends of the same woman, and it might involve something like that, or just a malicious cult spreading lies regarding me and my life. I'm not a member of any religion that operates in that way, and once again I've never been an abusive spouse.

I have on three separate occasions assisted women in escaping situations involving physically abusive partners. One of the weapons of cults that protect people of that ilk is transference. To take the crimes of one person and transfer the responsibility for those crimes onto an innocent person, usually involving a lot of verbal harassment and stalking by groups of people attempting to stick those crimes and rumours to their victim from the person really responsible for them. Meanwhile, such groups never harass or stalk the perpetrators of those crimes. Rather, they protect them.

So I'm not a spousal abuser and never have been and never will be. Also, I'm not an identity thief and never have been and never will be. So when I make these claims, I am not making them under someone else's identity. These very much apply to my own life and my own love interest is Mandarin Chinese, and she's someone with whom I've been involved romantically before and she knows I'd never hurt her in that way. 

My name isn't Peter by the way and I've never been involved romantically with anyone named Janice or Karen with all due respect. Social cults really make life difficult at times.

Oh and when I say that I'm an Atheist and lean towards Buddhism and Taoism, I'm not taking that from someone else's identity. That is truly how I am. I am not being controlled or even puppeteered into saying any of this, or any aspect of my writing. So the plots of those books are not part of any reaction to harassment or stalking, but plot elements that it took years in some cases for me to settle on after considering the story lines thoroughly.

Speaking of, I hope you're enjoying the new chapters for A Lady's Prerogative III: Singularity and Stories From The End (which I added earlier yesterday). Keep in mind that both of those books have been cooking in my head for decades, quite literally. 

More to come.

Stay safe and be well,

Brian Joseph Johns
