In the Booth with Ruth – Shelly Stoops, Former Specialist ISVA for Sex Workers, Armistead Street Project, Liverpool

The women I have worked with here in Merseyside now have a great level of trust in Merseyside Police. That has been the result of massive amounts of trust building from the women themselves, the ISVA (Independent Sexual Violence Advisor) and sex work project. So in the beginning, women would do Ugly Mug reports if they were attacked and wouldn’t dream of going to the police. Now, they will ring 999 just like any other victim would which is a direct result of the partnership.

Well I'm a singer-songwriter, I teach vocals and I'm a wife and mother so that leaves very little time. When I wrote my first novel I very often wrote in the early hours of the morning. I'm a bit of an insomniac so it seemed the ideal opportunity. At the moment I've set myself a challenge to write a minimum of 1000 words per day as I try to finish my second novel.

I tend to be inspired by the confluence of two unrelated ideas. In the case of the novel I’m writing now, it was the recent furore over Lance Armstrong, coming clean about doping after lying for years – and cryptozoology. That said, it’s not about cycling, drugs or Bigfoot – at least, not yet.

In the Booth with Ruth – Linda Sullivan, Executive Director/President of B.E.S.T. & Master Certified Coach for Victims of Human Trafficking

I have been working in this field since I was a young volunteer myself, for over 25 years. I have been an advocate for at risk populations over my lifetime and became passionate about the subject of human trafficking when I first assisted a victim. I studied social sciences in Manhattan at the New School University and became well-versed in cross cultural human rights issues. My studies at the New School University opened the doors for studies in comparative religions and anthropology and tribal studies. My work, studies and volunteer efforts kept me drawn to human rights and human trafficking issues.
