Author’s War on Childhood Sexual Abuse

Valley, AL – February 9, 2011 – Author of the forthcoming book Comfort Food for the Mind, Body, and Soul, Sharon Fox is about to declare war on Childhood Sexual Abuse. Her cookbook actually tells stories of her own sexual abuse between sections of delicious recipes. Set to release on April 30, 2011, Fox has pledged to use some proceeds from her book sales to provide literature about statistics, help lines, and warning signs to the public in her attempt to bring awareness to communities nationwide. “This is a topic that has been taboo for so many years. We need to save the innocence of our children, and I want to do my part in helping fight this terrible crime.”

Sharon Fox says that once she decided to talk about her own experiences, she noticed that it was actually a very common crime. One in four girls and one in six boys, according to studies revealed recently on an Oprah Winfrey show episode featuring Tyler Perry, are sexually abused by the time they turn 18 years old. Comedian and actress, Mo’Nique was also sexually abused as a child. Sharon Fox says hearing their stories actually helped her heal from her own painful childhood experience.

The Southern Hospitality Protect Our Children Tour will launch on April 30, 2011. Sharon is seeking donations and corporate sponsors to help keep the tour going for the next 2 years. For information on how you or your company can support this tour, go to her website for details. Sharon says sponsors will be recognized on all ads, program material, media, and internet websites and social networks that she is connected with.
Sharon says, “I’m not worried about being a famous author or TV personality. I’m not interested in being Paula Deen or Rachel Ray, I just want to use my experiences and how I survived them to inspire others to find the strength inside to live a positive, productive life. I have lived on disability for the last 5 years, but I am still determined to do all I can to preserve the innocence of children, and inspire them to live the life they were born to live.”

Comfort Food for the Mind, Body, and Soul has taken three long years to complete. Sharon is looking forward to its release in April to launch her Protect Our Children Tour. She was named Culinary Artist of the Social Networks in January by marketing and event management company FBC Records out of Atlanta, GA. She plans to tour for this cause and do book signings and interviews for 2 years and then release a series of many more cookbooks.
