Profile Information

Who I am:
I am a mother of three and a prosecutor of child abuse and sex crimes in New York City. During the course of my fourteen years of public service, I have successfully prosecuted hundreds of offenders. My first book “My Body Belongs to Me”, is intended to prevent child sexual abuse by teaching children that their bodies are their own. Written for children three to ten, the overriding message is if someone touches a child inappropriately, they should tell a parent or teacher right away. Repped by Peter Rubie of FinePrint Literary Management.

In April 2011, I had the pleasure of appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show to discuss what motivated me to write My Body Belongs to Me. See video clip below.

In October 2006, I launched HowsMyNanny.com to support parents and their children. HowsMyNanny.com is the first online nanny reporting service that works to keep children safe by enabling parents to receive positive or negative feedback on their child’s caregiver via a license plate attached to the child’s stroller.

Outside the courtroom, my fondness for writing led me to create thepoemlady.com, where I pen personalized pieces for all occasions.

10 Reasons Parents Don't Discuss Child Sexual Abuse

Posted on March 22, 2014 at 4:27pm 4 Comments

     As a prosecutor of child abuse and sex crimes in New York City for the past sixteen years and a prevention specialist, I have heard all the reasons why parents don’t discuss child sexual abuse prevention with their children. I have heard them so often that I can recite them by heart. In honor of April’s Child Abuse Prevention Month, I decided it would be a good idea to memorialize the top 10 reasons why parents choose not to discuss the subject.

1. Children are seldom…

10 Tips to a Happier 2012

Posted on December 28, 2011 at 10:53pm 41 Comments

For the past twenty years, I have shared one of my favorite guides, Life’s Little Instruction Book, as part of my New Year’s Eve celebration.  The book is made up of tips and advice that help one lead a fuller, happier life.  Some of my favorites include, “resist the temptation to buy a boat” and “compliment three people a day.”  Traditionally, each person I am celebrating with adds a tip to the end of the book.  One year, my brother-in-law added, “conserve water, shower with a…

Thank you Jill. She Writes already has been good to me, as I won the She Writes/Juke Pop serial prize for non-fiction exploring the body feminine in En Utero:Stories of the Womb. Since I work cross-culturally with torture survivors, I will be featuring a short in En Utero on female genital mutilation, which is a different type of child sexual abuse. There are too many ways to abuse, and all abuse must stop.

Hey. :) Thank you for welcoming me.

I read your blog post and i think it's really good that you're writing about sexual abuse because this issue needs to be highlighted as being a major crime and taken action against. Personally, I'm a patriot and write about loving our country and being proud of being Pakistani. You can check out some of my work at www.bepatrioticpakistan.blogspot.com and soon I'll be publishing a book too. :)

Thanks again.

Thank you for your welcome Jill. Your book looks really great. I am sad that I didn't share such a book with my children and I am sure many mothers are too. Interesting that you went to Italy to promote awareness. I lived there for many years but when my children were harmed the inadequacies of their system were revealed and I had to reach out to my own country's system for assistance.

I am a poet and writer too, but my own writing focus is on supporting the transformation of identity that a mother goes through when she learns of such awful harms- it is a journey of loss, social exclusions, intense cultural and psychological challenges but ultimately an example of resilience of the spirit and rebuilding of faith and trust. The outcomes for children depend so much on the strength of a supportive mother.

Keep up the incredibly good work.
