About the Author

Andrea Heinz is a Socialist Feminist who spent seven years in Edmonton's licensed sex industry, exiting in December 2012. She holds a diploma in Correctional Services and is presently completing a Bachelor of Professional Arts in Governance, Law, and Management. Andrea is a peer-reviewed scholar on commercial sexual exploitation, has written for several professional publications, participated in a number of interviews, and appeared as a witness for the parliamentary review of Canada's prostitution laws.

Andrea enjoys long distance running and lives in Edmonton with her husband and three young children. While co-authoring this book, she also spent three years as Executive Producer for an eight-episode docuseries titled Labeled. In 2020 she was honoured with a Woman of Courage Award by the Centre to End All Sexual Exploitation (Canada).

Kathy King is a retired clinical social worker (BA, BSW, MSW) with over five decades of professional employment and volunteer advocacy. Her first book was Child Sexual Abuse: The Search for Healing (1990) co-authored with Christopher Bagley. In 1997, her passion became more personal when she lost her only daughter to drug addiction, mental illness, and exploitation. Kathy has contributed to many articles and, in 2018, launched a website, MissingCara.ca, where she shares her story.

Kathy lives in Edmonton with her husband, whom she met in 1993. Both have stepped back from their respective careers and enjoy spending time with friends and family. Kathy received a Stars of Alberta Volunteer Award in 2020 for excellence in volunteerism and was recognized as a Daughter of the Year by the Canadians for a Civil Society. In 2021 she was honoured with the Joy Award from Soroptimist International Edmonton and in 2022 was gifted with the Indigenous name "Spirit Woman" on her 74th birthday.
