Author and Awareness Advocate
Susan Norris began investigating the sex-trafficking epidemic after hearing rumors about children being exploited in her suburban Atlanta neighborhood. Through her research, she was appalled to discover that more than 100,000 U.S. children are sexually trafficked annually.
Self-Publishing with iUniverse
To shine a light on this crisis, Norris set forth to write Rescuing Hope, a novel partially based on a series of interviews she conducted with victims. She chose to self-publish with iUniverse so that she could deliver her message her way as well as meet an important deadline: While writing the book, she was approached by a national ministry that wanted to launch the book at a New Year’s event.

Norris is now an international speaker and a powerful voice for hope. She helps teens and women find freedom in the areas of purity and spiritual identity.
