Welcome to my website!  Thank you for taking the time to visit!


My name is Cynthia Bailey-Rug, and I am an author.  I write from a Christian perspective, and cover topics such as Christian living, animals, self-help, overcoming narcissistic abuse, narcissism and a little fiction.  I especially enjoy writing non-fiction books designed to help Christians who are currently suffering through or have survived narcissistic abuse.  It seems only right to me to use my own painful and difficult life experiences to help others. 


My books can be seen on my Books for Sale page.

****Books for sale are available in either paper or in ebook format. (If you prefer a different ebook format than what is offered, you can convert these books easily by using Calibre software. It is completely free, and easy to use. Check it out at: http://calibre-ebook.com)****


Do not forget to check out my page for The Butterfly Project.  I created The Butterfly Project as a way to encourage survivors of narcissistic abuse as well as to help raise awareness of this terrible problem.


***What’s New***


**Due to my mother’s sudden death in April, 2019, I am taking a hiatus from writing books.  (I will continue writing in my blog and making YouTube videos, however.)  I have a lot to deal with to settle her estate, and need to focus on that.  Once things calm down some, I will resume the activities listed below.**

I am currently working on creating a series of small books about narcissism and narcissistic abuse.  Each book in the series will address only one aspect of either Narcissistic Personality Disorder or narcissistic abuse.  My goal is to help those who are new to learning about narcissism as well as those who are still in a relationship with the narcissist in their life.  

And, I have created my first Amazon Alexa skill!  It is free, and called “Narcissism Facts By Cynthia Bailey-Rug.” <–Check it out at that link.  I hope to add more in the future.


You Can Make A Difference!

Would you like to help others?  You can! I would like to compile a book of stories of survivors of various types of abuse, and how God helped them/is currently helping them to heal from their pain.  If you have been in an abusive situation, then please, share your story with me for inclusion in this book, no matter what phase of healing you are in. Your story may change someone’s life!  It will be a free ebook on this site, available to inspire anyone who has been abused.
