Kenny Mcilwain

Autobiography, True Crime


Kenny Mac is a husband, father, grandfather, artist, author, runner, cyclist, photographer and lover of life and nature in general. He is also a survivor of institutionalised sexual abuse. After 38 years of living with PTSD and trying to control his memories, a trigger in 2011 saw him change tack and begin fighting for acknowledgement and an apology from the Australian Defence Force. 'No Defence' is the story of what led to him being abused, and the ramifications of that throughout his life - and the lives of those around him.
