Dawn Schiller has written her first book “The Road Through Wonderland” which is being released by Medallion Press. The book details her five year physically & sexually abusive relationship with porn star John Holmes starting when she was 15 and he was 32. Her father had pretty much abandoned her and allowed John to take on a fatherly role after meeting John in the apartment complex that he managed. John’s wife Sharon Holmes was more of a mother to Dawn than her own mother ever was. Sharon had stayed married to John and living in the same home with him but they were living separate lives after she had learned he had started doing porn in the late 60’s.
The book is not about porn since John never allowed Dawn or his wife Sharon to be around it. But it does talk about the abuse she went through and what she was forced to do while with John after he had started doing drugs.
After John was arrested for his possible involvement in the ‘Wonderland Murders’, Dawn left the United States in fear and went to live with her father in Thailand. She returned seven years later where she had learned for the first time that John was dying of AIDS. Dawn and Sharon were reunited when she returned and they remained close friends throughout the years.
Dawn was portrayed by actress Kate Bosworth in the 2003 film “Wonderland”.
