"Breaking My Silence", is an unembellished non-fiction memoir about Jane McCormick's life and her survival from child abuse, domestic violence, prostitution, and human trafficking. It is co-written by Jane McCormick and Patti Wicklund, that is an absolute must read for everyone desiring to protect and prevent other innocent lives from being negatively impacted by the very perpetrators who unceasingly prey on them.
Jane is a true survivor from a previous life filled with constant abuse, breach of trust, drugs, crime, and the consistent, overwhelming fear of death in a business that is as old as the times. The book exposes promises of the "Golden Life" by deceptive perpetrators for their own twisted satisfaction and personal financial gain.
Explicitly written, this book graphically details the concrete, truthful facts about McCormick's life that begins with repeated sexual abuse as a child. These pivotal, impacting events of an innocence stolen, led McCormick on an excruciatingly, long journey of personal experiences; a teen marriage, mother of two children, intense financial hardship, a pimp, prostituting for the rich & famous as a "high-class" '60's Las Vegas "call girl", dealing with a mobster threatening to kill her, and Jane's eventual escape to have a life she so desperately longed for; supporting and taking care of her two young children.
This ordeal has empowered both McCormick and Wickland in their continual efforts to provide all the facts, information, education, and resource tools necessary for the prevention of these crimes. They are utilizing all avenues available to ensure their voices are being heard within society. They strongly believe that their advocacy role is an imperative factor in petitioning for the implementation of stricter, more severe legal penalties for all perpetrators.
