She wrote ‘Not My Shame’ based on her experiences which was published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers in 2016:

“It exposes the rape culture and victim-blaming that seems endemic in the media and the professionals who misread and misunderstand the power structures in play.” Dr Ian Williams

Told from the perspective of a woman who survived it, this beautifully drawn book powerfully illuminates the terror, blame and shame that traps victims in sexually exploitative relationships “. Dr Sam Warner

Chair David Owens
