Author of No Working Title – a life in progress
In his own words:
I am currently finalizing the book. I also speak on the issue of the effect of sexual abuse and pornography on boys as they grow into manhood.
The issue of the sexual abuse of women is a topic that has managed to come mainstream and is being addressed, but the issue of the sexual abuse of men, particularly by women is something that is still a taboo or is met with ridicule.
I want to help give voice to the millions of silent men, to help them with a vocabulary to discuss the issues they face.

NOTE from Bill — I’m hoping that after my more than 25 years of sobriety and recovery from all the issues initiated by my severe abuse as a child our new http://www.NAASCA.org non profit can resonate with hope for those who have found it difficult to share their abuse stories. I especially encourage sharing in appropriate groups. This is the beginning of recovery. Secondly I’m hoping our new effort can help bring attention to a growing problem the scope of which few understand. Its simply unacceptable that hundreds of thousands of young Americans fall victim to pedophiles, molesters, kidnappers, child ographers and traffickers each year.
It’s believed that 1 in 3 girls is sexually abused, and a general consensus of 1 in 5 to 1 in 7 boys is sexually abused. Some say as many as ninety percent of sexual abuse victims never tell. 2,000 children are reported missing each day in America.
