Welcome to Julie Coons


How does a little girl survive an abusive mother, Catholic school, rape and a near death experience?

Raised by an abusive, narcissistic mother (who once tried to trick her into having an

abortion), Julie Coons was also raped in college by a stranger and later married an

abusive man who threatened to kill her if she ever tried to leave.

Suffering from physical and mental torment resulting in very

low self-esteem, Julie often felt so completely alone during the many struggles of her life

that she tried to take her own life.

This book is her true story—telling all the secrets she was never

allowed to tell to encourage and motivate others to heal their

own lives and break the cycle of abuse.

Her story shows that there is hope and life after abuse.

Now that the secrets are finally out, Julie has found freedom.

So can you.

This Does Not Leave This House is a raw, poignant, and secret-revealing memoir written to

lead a movement to break the silence of abuse and finally end its vicious cycle. With

strength and resiliency, Coons provides a voice for the silent abused, letting them know

they’re not alone. Justice and hope can prevail. The abused can become victorious.

Read the heartbreaking true story of her journey to triumph above

overwhelming obstacles.

About me

Nice To Meet You


Hi, my name is Julie Coons. I am a wife, mother and grandmother living in a small town in Oregon. I hope to someday travel the world inspiring others to end the cycle of abuse in their own lives. I also hope I can help others heal their own wounds and find meaning to their suffering through my story.

Why I wrote this book


I wrote a book about my life hoping to inspire positive change in the world. I wrote in a very honest and sometimes emotional way. I have been threatened into silence far too long. It's time to get these secrets out into the open and end the cycle of abuse in families once and for all.
