According to UNICEF, An estimated 2.5 million children, the majority of them girls, are sexually exploited in the multibillion dollar commercial sex industry. This is a true travesty of our time. And as someone posted on my blog yesterday, this happens so much, but not many are talking about it. I couldn't do that. When I watched a television special on child trafficking with my husband, I couldn’t stop the ache in my heart. I couldn’t get the image of these poor girls’ faces out of my mind. The horrors these children endure in their own poverty-stricken country is horrible enough, but to be brought to America and be further exploited and abused is appalling. When my outrage settled deep inside me, I began researching this travesty and just became sick. I knew then I had to write a story about this most serious issue. Thus, DELIVER US FROM EVIL was born. It releases February 2010.
