Be Happy this Valentines Day!

Dear Readers.

If you are alone this Valentine’s Day, that’s okay. Please, don’t be bamboozled by all the retail hype to get talked into a rubbish date. Why not treat yourself to a good time anyway with mates? Remember that you are worth it!

You could not curl up with a good book or film instead.

Then, this weekend or even next week will be less busy and better value for money to go out. The price of flowers gets inflated on Valentines and restaurants tend to give poor service. Have a cuppa T with me.Arts help your soul

#Am reading-Please Let Me Go

This is a work of non-fiction based on the life of Caitlin Spencer. She is so brave in writing this horrific true story of a girl’s life in the hands of sex traffickers, from 2017.

I read and was upset that this happened. I was shocked. I’m glad people are believing her, at last. But this is also an empowering story of survival.

I want to say, ‘I told you so!’ to those who questioned my book, “What If I Go?” Please download or buy these novels to spread the word about grooming and trafficking.

A recent article tells of this happening not so long ago in Huddersfield, Northern England. See the October 2019 newspaper report here – https://ind.pn/2CtXLzZ

What a shameful story. Let’s stop young people being preyed upon by empowering them to escape or run away to safety.

Literary Success- film chances?

Yay! My Festival interview by Matthew Toffolo has been promoted to one of the best NEW stories of the month! Thank-you.

Film rights to raise awareness of women’s exploitation are quite another matter. Aren’t they? I’m thinking…

Who could be interested in going to see an empowering film lifting the lid on grooming? #me2

Novel Transcript Reading of WHAT IF I GO? by Polly White

Huge thanks go to Wildsound for hosting an extract from my manuscript, as part of their Novel Festival. Special appreciation goes to actor Kate Fenton.

Here, I’m raising awareness of how a vulnerable student gets taken in by an exploitative predator. This extract shows the grooming of a fifteen-year-old girl. Beware of the last violent scene!

Please help me give a heads up, send the link to Freshers and college students so they don’t fall prey to gangs.

This was in the Times today about taxi drivers in Birmingham. I feel that my research was accurate, I’m sorry to say.-
