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 sixteen years of public service, I have successfully prosecuted thousands 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 http://www.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 5 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…

Thanks for contacting me, Jill.  I've been a psychologist for 35 years and have worked with sexually abused children starting at my internship.  It's a tough thing to do without burn out and I've had to pause, restore, restart several times.  About 20 years ago I moved my private practice to another state and was able to broaden my practice to include other sorts of problems, which helped.  I'm moving towards retirement now and am writing fiction to restore. It's pretty fun.  Even in my novel, though, the theme of sexual abuse is infusing the story.  I would like to return to some professional writing on the subject as well.  It matters. And I haven't yet picked up my research again.  It sits in boxes in the writing room.  I think seeing your greeting has helped nudge me forward again.

Oh thank you for the welcome! I also think it's great what you are doing to protect children from abuse. I think your blog about parents discussing child sexual abuse is spot on. They should be discussing it and letting the kids know what to look out for and how to (hopefully) get out of the situation or at least bring it to someones attention that can help. What a great ground-breaker for the parent to use the book as a way to start the conversation. They are never too young to know what's happening in that regard.

Thanks, Jill.  Thank you for doing what you do.  I am currently developing two programs -- one for at-risk youth (kids in trouble) and the other for at-risk women (domestic violence victims and/or homeless). 

I appreciate the friendly welcome... =)
