Speak Up Publishing

Publisher info

Kelly Boykin has always loved the written word and, throughout her life, has used it as a means to deal with the emotional pain she suffered because of childhood sexual abuse. Her writing has been published in a national magazine, and she has appeared as an expert on two television talk shows, whose subjects were sexual addiction.

Ms. Boykin is the mother of two beautiful daughters, a business owner, entrepreneur, and author living in Middle Tennessee. Her and her oldest daughter founded the non-profit organization "Speak Up" to help victims and survivors of sexual abuse, allowing them to have a voice and to heal by speaking up. She grew up in Arizona with five brothers, her amazingly strong mother, and her step-father, who she calls dad.

Ms. Boykin continues to write and is authoring her second book, which she hopes to release in the Spring of 2012.
