True Crime at its Best


Amazon bestselling Author Shaun Webb’s sixth full-length work, and second true crime study, Lost Youth: A True Story, delves into a fateful October 1981 night in Waterford, Michigan that rocked a quiet family’s peace and shook an entire community to its deepest emotional depth.
Colette Molyneaux, 13, a cute, healthy and happy teenager, paid the ultimate price in a criminal’s horrible thirst for blood.  Nancy Molyneaux, Colette’s mother, also suffered enormously, enduring the violent act of rape on top of losing a dear daughter.
Who was responsible for these monstrous crimes?  Why did such a bright light and friendly young lady have to be extinguished so brutally?  More to the point; what factors could have possibly contributed to the awful situation?
In his search for the truth, Shaun digs into the police investigation, forensic science and interviews with the people who were closest to Colette along with others involved in the tragic case.
Emotionally wrenching and infuriatingly sad, Lost Youth: A True Story seeks answers which are elusive in nature.  The story will soften the hardest heart and challenge one’s deepest logic.
You are the jury.  Study all of the facts and see if you can come up with the answer that resists disclosure.  The surprises this case exposes will perplex you like nothing you’ve ever heard or read.
Colette speaks with us from the spiritual world; can we take just a moment to listen?




It could happen to you! The judicial system has been on a downward spiral due to overzealous prosecutors, entitled judges, and privatization within the incarceration “industry.” It is no longer “innocent until proven guilty,” as much as it is a contest between two lawyers to see who reigns supreme. The defendants have become pawns in a giant game. Finances, not facts, often determine the outcome of cases.

In my story, Sean West finds himself in the midst of such impropriety. Accused of sexual misconduct that he insists never happened, it triggers a series of events that forever changes his life. When a 15 year-old girl steps forward with allegations of abuse, Mr. West has confidence that the judicial system will discover the truth and make the correct decision regarding his future. A judge who berates lawyers, a defense attorney obviously frightened by the judge and a prosecutor with a penchant for trying people with weak evidence turns Sean’s trial into a circus. Sean finds that his faith in the judicial system was sorely mistaken as the trial plays out before him. Rather than a search for the truth, it becomes a mission to re-arrange the facts to fit the prosecutor’s agenda.

A Motion for Innocence…And Justice for All? is a revealing story about the reality of justice in America today. Written in first person, this book takes the listener on a journey through the court system and beyond. It is emotional, traumatic and real. If you think it cannot happen to you, think again.

The Judge

Here is a bio of the judge who screwed Sean West in court.  Her name in A Motion for Innocence is Dorothy Taylor.  She belittled the prosecution, talked down to the defendants, and even fell asleep during the trial.  Read about it here:

I’ve Hit The Wall

5 books in 5 years.  5 book tours.  Divorce.  People who act like assholes.  Indifference, politics, nightmares, depression, anxiety, panic, and everything else that goes with these subjects have worn me down.

The public (most people), in their goal of trying to make themselves  “look” or “appear”  better than others, have sucked the life right out of me.  Some say they are friends when they are not.  Some try to “cheer” me up with convoluted theories and isms.  Some even try “tough” love.  I’m immune to all of it.  None of it works anymore because I see right through the bullshit.  I have flaws, you have flaws.

We are all flawed.

A woman who constantly berated and attempted to manipulate me has died.  Her name was Valerie Parkhurst, aka Valigator.  I fought with this woman for years, always attempting to out-troll her.  I felt like I hated this woman, but after her death, I changed my tune completely.  As we all know, each one of us WILL die.  There is no sense in trying to fight it because we will lose.  Upon her death, I felt a sympathy that I’m so very glad still exists within me.  I looked up her postmortem funeral home and left a heartfelt and real message:  “Although we had our differences in life, I pray that you find peace in death through our Lord Jesus.”  I really meant it and hope she finds peace, although it’s not my choice.  It is between her and God.  I just hope I helped.  Unfortunately, there are others, like 39 yr-old 270 lb. Derek W. Logue of Cincinnati, who not only celebrated her death and trip to Hell, but wished many others, including me, the same fate.  Sad, isn’t it?

Derek has spent a great deal of time teasing me about my weight (much of which I have lost), and criticizing my sympathy over a passed away woman.  That kind of bullshit is wearing on my human soul.  We need to learn how to forgive and forget.  Derek, unfortunately, doesn’t get that because his bitterness runs so deep.  I pray for Derek too.  Any one of us could be gone any day.  Let’s not be angry with one another on that day.

I’m burned out.  In my 5 books since 2010, I have written nearly 750,000 words that encompassed 20,000 pages.  I did a lot of research, typing and interviewing in that time.  I’m tired and depressed.  I have nothing more to give right now.  I feel numb.  If anybody thought a writer’s job was easy??  I have to laugh.  It’s a tough job.  You put your heart into something and get very little in return.  You put your work out there and hope for the best from people.  While 75% of feedback is positive, that 25% crap hurts like a bitch.  I don’t even read the reviews any more.  They are too painful.

I really could go on and on, but this is just a post, not a novel.  Please remember….any one of us could die at any moment.  Let’s please be kind to others.

I’m tired and I’m fried……torched….I hope I live to write another book..

Sister to Sister (Love Conquers All)

Colette 2


My Dearest Colette,

Not a day goes by that I don’t miss you and think of you.  My imagination often runs wild with thoughts of how life would be if you were still here today.  What would you have made of your life? Would you have followed in the footsteps of our parents and made a living as a talented artist?  Perhaps you would have followed your heart and found a way to spend your days working with animals or caring for horses that you loved so much.  Undoubtedly, you’d be a sweet and caring Auntie and sister who could be turned to in times of need.



You touched the people around you in such a profound way.  Although time continues to heal our breaking hearts, it will not erase our cherished memories of you.  Your kind-hearted nature and love for life made you the best sister and friend I could’ve ever wished to have.  My heart knows you’re still doing what big sisters do, watching out for me and protecting me from Heaven.  Your love touches my soul every day.  You’re my angel, guarding and guiding me as I journey through life.



Those who knew you will never forget you and it’s my personal mission to make sure that your memory lives on.  My children were never blessed with the opportunity to meet you, but they know they have an Auntie Angel watching them from Heaven.  In your honor, your niece bears your middle name and has your initials. 



We miss you more than words can say, we love you more than words can express.  You will live on in our hearts forever.


All My Love,  M.
