Deliver Me From Evil: A Freedom Series Novel on Sexual Slavery & Human Trafficking



The family and friends of the estimated 27 million modern-day slaves entrapped in sexual slavery, debt bondage and human trafficking today.

But they are not alone.

There are also a number of what I call “creative advocates” who join me in using creative means to raise our collective voice to bring attention to and call for the abolition of human trafficking.  Kathi Macias, award-winning author and former journalist stands out among those voices.

As creative advocates, we strive to create awareness, stir a desire to get involved, deliver a challenge and leave a lasting imprint on hearts and minds.

Kathi passionately uses her experience and talent to do just that.  Partnering with New Hope Publishers, she has created the three-part Freedom Series devoted to spread the fire of truth about sexual exploitation and human trafficking.  In Deliver Me From Evil, the first book in the series, she issues a call for the abolition of human trafficking, aka modern-day slavery.


Deliver Me From Evil introduces readers to Mara, an eighteen-year-old girl who has been enslaved for nearly ten years, having been sold by her parents in Mexico and then smuggled across the border into San Diego where she was forced into sexual slavery. Readers will also meet 18-year-old Jonathan and his 16-year-old sister, Leah, whose paths cross Mara’s and who become involved in her dramatic rescue.

Interwoven between the stories of Mara, Jonathan, and Leah is the heartbreaking story of another young woman in captivity in the Golden Triangle of Thailand, whose past life mysteriously connects to the young people in San Diego.

“A startling encounter with the real-world horrors of sexual trafficking that could have come from the pages of any major newspaper” –Lisa L. Thompson, MA, liaison for the abolition of sexual trafficking, Salvation Army National Headquarters


Raising awareness is critical and necessary to peel back the reality of this massive global modern-day crime, but we can’t stop there.  We need to connect with others to create an even stronger net, commit to persistently employ our voices and then pair our resources with those voices.

While some have the ability to fuel the fight against sexual slavery and human trafficking with finances, others can make a difference through strategic networking in their community, initiating or assisting in creative projects that draw attention to the subject, partnering in key legislation and/or through targeted education.
