Ruth Jacobs is a writer, broadcaster and campaigner. She lives a quiet life in a village in Hertfordshire, England, which is quite a contrast from her teens and early twenties spent rather waywardly in London.
'Soul Destruction: Unforgivable' is Ruth's début novel, and is the first in a series exposing the dark world and harsh reality of life as a drug addicted call girl. The story follows Shelley Hansard, a heroin addicted and crack psychotic London call girl, who gets the opportunity to take revenge on a client who raped her and her friends. The main storyline is based loosely on events from Ruth's life.
In addition to fiction writing, Ruth is also involved in non-fiction, journalism and broadcasting, primarily for charity and human rights campaigning in the areas of sex workers' rights, anti-sexual exploitation and anti-human trafficking. For BBC1 she has researched and presented documentaries on the policing of prostitution in the UK. Articles she's written have been published on Women News Network, The F-Word, Ms. Magazine Blog and Bitch magazine among others. She also writes a blog on the Huffington Post.
Currently, Ruth's involved in the campaign calling for the Merseyside hate crime model of policing prostitution to be made law. To sign the Change.org petition follow this link: http://www.change.org/merseysidemodel.
Her short charity publication 'In Her Own Words... Interview with a London Call Girl' is available to download from Amazon and all royalties are donated to Beyond the Streets, a UK charity working to end sexual exploitation.
'Life', Ruth's short crime story about Max, a crack-addicted failed father facing a life sentence for a crime he can't remember committing, is free to download on Kindle.
