Bissell's childhood began much like millions of other middle class children. That is until her parents divorced and her mother remarried. On her mother’s wedding day Anne’s live took a dramatic turn for the worst. Unbeknownst to anyone was Bissell’s new stepfather, the man she looked up to and trusted, was a pedophile. The sexual abuse she experienced as a child and young-adult led her down the path to prostitution and drugs.

After years of counseling and therapy Bissell emerged from the depths of the sex industry to become an activist committed to helping others who have been sexual abused or afflicted by this horrendous industry. To help her in her mission, Anne founded and manages two non profit outreach network groups: Sex Industry Survivors Anonymous and Voices for Justice.

“Every day, a child is exploited, every day, we look the other way” says Bissell. “If I did not tell the truth about what happened in my lifetime as a result of my own experiences as an exploited child, it would be as if I too was looking the other way. If no one tells the truth, the exploitation will become the norm.”

Bissell hopes her popular new book: ‘Memoirs of a Sex Industry Survivor’ will bring attention to the devastating effects prostitution has on its victims. Juliet West, the main character in Memoirs of a Sex Industry Survivor, is based on Anne's personal experiences. The character’s main goal is to expose the inter-relationship between childhood sexual abuse, promiscuity, and prostitution. Juliet West battles the secret, silent conspiracy of shame that is immobilizing women around the United States, and worldwide.”

Credentials: Bissell has studied women in the sex industry for nearly two decades. She has delivered a message of hope and recovery into churches, recovery homes, and jails to both prostituted survivors and victims of other sex crimes. Anne is the author of ‘Memoirs of a Sex Industry Survivor’ and founder of Sex Industry Survivors Anonymous and Voices for Justice. She is media trained and has appeared on countless Radio and TV shows including A Current Affair, Geraldo, Fox Network News and Dr. Phil.
