Proud of East Texas: The Advocates

By Joan Hallmark joanhallmark@kltv.com

@Theresa Westbrook and John Borgstedt, both victims of childhood sexual abuse, are the authors of the book "The Advocates," a role they are playing in real life. Borgstedt has already gained international attention with his first book "Mom I Love You: Please Don't Break My Heart," which has resulted in a documentary and motion picture. Westbrook is the author of "A Strand of Pearls," which also describes her childhood abuse,

"The Advocates" relates stories of young people who've shared their stories of abuse with Borgstedt and Westbrook. The book is in a talk show format which intrigues the reader while masking the victims identities. "The Advocates" is available online through Author House, Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
