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…

Hi Jill

Thanks for your comment.

I signed up mostly as a pre-requisite to the publication of my new memoir.  I'd seen She Writes mentioned in Journey of Memoir by Linda Joy Myers.

I'm not sure now as to how best to make this site work since I am based in the UK and feel a bit outnumbered by all you US members. 

Maybe I'll just have to wait and see...
