The Audacious Ladies of La Gran Sorellanza

As an international human rights adviser working with you in women and children's rights, I'm sure it comes as no surprise to you that one of my main focuses is Human Trafficking in all of its hideous forms and in particular sex slavery.

Because of my interest and concern in this worldwide travesty, I wrote a novel about this subject. The Audacious Ladies of La Gran Sorellanza is a fun and entertaining and enlightening venue to introduce the topic of sex slavery to those who may choose to ignore this issue our of fear and/or ignorance. This work takes place in the USA in an earlier time familiar with mafia violence:

It was during the 1950's that the Italian mafia tyrant, Don Amato Rizoso, determined it was time to get involved in the lucrative trade of human trafficking - sex slavery. Since there were no federal laws and ICE (Immigration Customs Enforcement) hadn't yet been created, those audacious Rizoso mafia wives decided they had to form their own group in order to rescue at least a few of the very victims their husbands were trafficking.

I very much appreciate your support in the making of this book known. it is my greatest dream that this work one day become a movie and distributed in DVD in order to reach as many people as possible. Could we not use many more voices rising up to help rescue our sisters and our children?
