Born to teen parents in 1964, Katie’s parents treated her like a showpiece – and a punching bag for her resentful mother. Her life revolved around flashing camera bulbs and tyrannical abuse by both her parents. When she was young, Katie was a wellbehaved and adorable little girl, but as she got older, she came to understand that hers was not a normal family.
