Modern day Slavery: The International La

Modern day Slavery: The International Labor Organization estimates that about 20.9 million people are enslaved globally—an overwhelming number. 1.5 million of these people are in developed economies and the European Union. And the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that 100,000 of these people are children within the U.S. Trafficking is not only a foreign problem. It’s an American problem.


Human Trafficking = Modern Day Slavery

Did you know that this is Human Trafficking Prevention Month? Did you know that slavery is alive and well in these United States? I write about history–women’s history–and yes, that includes the sordid stories of slavery from our American past. It saddens and frightens me to know that slavery–in so many forms–exists today. Please check out the link to “Causes” on Familiarize yourself with the frightening ways that young girls are lured into the sex slave trade in America. We must do all we can to stop human trafficking both here and abroad.

What I write

My genre is historical fiction.  I choose stories that weave real historical events with those of women who face hardships from without and from within.  We all need heroes who help us believe in a better world, a better life and a better us.  I hope my heroes give you courage and faith to face your darkness and find your truth.
