Rebel in High Heels is a memoir about Dr. Charlotte Laws--"the Erin Brockovich of revenge porn"--who was voted one of the "30 fiercest women in the world."

She fought a dangerous war against "the most hated man on the Internet" to protect her daughter and other victims. She was bombarded with death threats and computer viruses and targeted by a stalker who appeared at her home.

But who is this woman that MSNBC calls a hero? In addition to detailing her gripping revenge porn fight, this book chronicles the first 22 years of Laws' life.

Her adoptive mother committed suicide, her little brother was killed, and her father's only comment was he wished it had been her.

Laws' first boyfriend was pop idol Tom Jones. She has hobnobbed with the rich and famous. Though not born with VIP access, she taught herself how to gate-crash any event, anywhere, anytime. Rebel in High Heels details Laws' intriguing--sometimes scandalous--encounters with Bill Cosby and other stars.

At age 20, Laws earned 300k per year as a Las Vegas chip-chatter. She also worked as a bandit cab driver, a backup singer for an Elvis imitator and bodyguard for a prostitute.

Laws--a former Southern California politician and weekly NBC commentator--has appeared on "The Late Show," Fox News, "Oprah," "Nightline," CNN, "Dr. Drew" and "Larry King Live." She has a Ph.D. in Social Ethics, as well as two Master's degrees and two BAs. Her articles have been published in The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Jezebel, Salon and the L.A. Daily News.

Rebel in High Heels is mostly about perseverance and looking beyond oneself. It is about fighting for ones dreams, while striving to better the world.

Laws is the little Atlanta girl who could. And did.

About the Author

Dr. Charlotte Laws is known throughout the world as the “Erin Brockovich of revenge porn” and was voted “one of the 30 fiercest women in the world for 2013 (Buzzfeed).” She was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. She is a writer, television commentator and public speaker, but has also been a Buckhead debutante, magazine cover girl, private investigator, actress, Southern California politician and lecturer for the FBI in Quantico.

Laws has a Ph.D. in Social Ethics, as well as two Master’s degrees and two BAs. She has authored three books and contributed to four anthologies. Her articles have appeared in The Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Salon, Jezebel and the L.A. Daily News.

Laws has appeared on “The Late Show,” BBC, Fox News, “Oprah,” “Nightline,” MSNBC, CNN, “Dr. Drew,” and “Larry King Live.” She hosted her own TV program called “Uncommon Sense” and was a weekly contributor on the NBC show, “The Filter with Fred Roggin.”

Laws—who was adopted at birth—used her investigative abilities to track down her birth family in her late 20s, but only recently met her natural siblings. Her grandfather—an attorney who planned to run for U.S. Senate—was murdered by a devil worshiper in the 1940s.

Laws is a boardmember for the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, a nonprofit that aids victims of nonconsensual pornography. She regularly communicates with victims from around the world, advising them how to get their compromising photos removed from the Internet. She also works with legislators to pass anti-revenge porn bills. Laws is also a renowned animal advocate and the recipient of the 2006 L.A. Animal Humanitarian Award.

Laws lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two rescue dogs and nine rescue chickens.
