Susan Murphy Milano
Susan Murphy Milano is a nonfiction author, violence expert—a defender of victims’ rights. Susan has appeared onOprah, 20/20, American Justice, and CNN. As a nationally recognized women’s advocate, she was instrumental in the passage of the Illinois Stalking Law and the Lautenberg Act. After the murder of her mother, committed by her Chicago detective father, Susan set out on a mission to keep women alive and she has successfully done that for over 20 years. The ultimate question asked by Oprah, “So Susan, women have to have a plan?” was answered a dozen years later because of working and highlighting cases of high risk intimate partner violence,and finally, realizing the solution. The Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit (EAA) contained in her book, Time’s Up A Guide on How to Leave and Survive Abusive and Stalking Relationships is the prescription for the epidemic of women, like Stacy Peterson, who has been missing since 2007, and presumably dead. http://www.susanmurphymilano.com
