INTRODUCING REBEL IN HIGH HEELS,
A GRIPPING, TELL-ALL MEMOIR BY CHARLOTTE LAWS,
“THE ERIN BROCKOVICH OF REVENGE PORN”
New York, NY — August 15, 2015. Stroud House Publishing proudly presents Rebel in High Heels, a memoir by Dr. Charlotte Laws, the gutsy mom who battled—and defeated—the kingpin of revenge porn and the dangerous forces of conformity.
Laws is known as “the Erin Brockovich of revenge porn” and was voted one of the “30 fiercest women in the world in 2013” (Buzzfeed). She fought a dangerous war against Hunter Moore, “the most hated man on the Internet” (BBC), to protect her daughter and other victims. She was bombarded with death threats and computer viruses and targeted by a stalker who appeared at her home.
Laws, a former private eye, worked directly with the FBI in a two-year investigation, which resulted in Moore’s arrest and indictment in 2014 for conspiracy, identity theft and hacking. Laws was also instrumental in the passing of legislation that criminalizes posting people’s nude photos without their permission.
But who is this woman that MSNBC calls a hero? In addition to detailing her gripping revenge porn fight, Rebel chronicles the first 22 years of Laws’ life. Her adoptive mother committed suicide, her little brother was killed, and her father’s only comment was he wished it had been her.
Laws’ first boyfriend was pop idol Tom Jones. She has hobnobbed with the rich and famous. Though not born with VIP access, she taught herself how to gate-crash any event, anywhere, anytime. Rebel details Laws’ intriguing—sometimes scandalous—encounters with Bill Cosby and other stars.
At age 20, Laws earned 300k per year as a Las Vegas chip chatter. She also worked as a bandit cab driver, a backup singer for an Elvis imitator and bodyguard for a prostitute.
Laws—a former Southern California politician and weekly NBC commentator —has appeared on The Late Show, Fox News, Oprah, Nightline, CNN, Dr. Drew and Larry King Live. She has a Ph.D. in Social Ethics, as well as two Master’s degrees and two BAs. Her oped articles have been published in The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Newsweek, Salon and the L.A. Daily News. A piece she wrote went viral in under 24 hours on Jezebel; it has generated over 1.3 million page views to date.
What do people say about Laws?
“Never underestimate a former Buckhead debutante.” — Christian Boone, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“I didn’t realize how brave Charlotte Laws is until I see her in action.” —Carole Cadwalladr, The Guardian (UK).
“Charlotte Laws single-handedly dismantled the empire of pure evil that earned Hunter Moore the title of ‘Most Hated Man on the Internet.’ —Thomas Roberts, MSNBC.
“By following Laws’ bold life-crashing adventures, the reader learns how to be a rebel and a relentless advocate for victims. This memoir is about persistence, leading an active life and helping others. Laws invents her own recipe for success. She reveals her secrets in this mesmerizing tell-all book, tidbit by tasty tidbit.”—Yolando Brown, Every Way Woman Show.
“I am glad that Charlotte is sharing her story in writing this book. It is important that we educate people about revenge porn and the devastating effects on victims.” —Senator Anthony Cannella, California.
Rebel in High Heels is mostly about perseverance and looking beyond oneself. It is about fighting for ones dreams, while striving to better the world.
Laws is the little Atlanta girl who could. And did.
