Human trafficking

modern-day-slaveryI realize I’m in the midst of a fun contest, but sipping my morning coffee, I couldn’t help but be bowled over by the recent news of three young women who were kidnapped a decade ago and held against their will by a man in Ohio.

Part of the underlying theme of my historical novels are women who overcome adversity.  They are beaten, sold, enslaved…forced into the most mean of circumstances, and yet they were able to rise above and persevere.

A portion of the proceeds of my historical novels is (and will continue to be) donated regularly to PolarisProject–an organization that fights against human trafficking and modern day slavery. Slavery is a very real and disturbing presence in our society. It is not relegated to history books and third world countries.Kat_dc_street_210

Please consider joining me in supporting this organization.  If you were planning to pick up a good histfic novel, or to recommend one, you can comfort yourself with the knowledge that a portion of the proceeds will go to support this fine nonprofit organization. Or you can just enter your information and elect to get involved and contribute here.

Either way, it’s a win-win!
