Being Interviewed (Part 7 of 12)

Here are nine of the questions Don Otis included in his press kit for Katariina Rosenblatt's Stolen: The True Story of a Sex Trafficking Survivor.

At the top of the page, Don wrote: "Some say that fewer than 15 percent of human trafficking victims ever escape."

1. Who are the most vulnerable victims of sex trafficking?

2. You write that when love and affection aren't met in healthy ways within a family a person may seek them in other ways. Explain what you mean.

3. You grew up as a survivor of abuse. What happened?

4. Once a girl or boy is targeted, why are they more likely to be targeted again?

5. You say you felt God was with you even in the worst of times. Tell us about that.

6. Why do so few trafficking victims escape the life?

7. Explain what you mean by a "trauma bond."

8. How did you get out of the destructive life?

9. What advice do you give parents about keeping their kids safe?

Everything is on a single page. At the bottom, Don wrote a biographical sketch and provided a photo of Kat.

Katariina Rosenblatt, PhD, is proof of the promise she heard long ago at a Billy Graham crusade that God would never forsake her. Katariina has a PhD in conflict analysis and resolution, an LLM graduate law degree in intercultural human rights, and works closely with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and Homeland Security to eliminate human slavery. She also founded Stolen Ones—There Is H.O.P.E. for Me, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing other victims of human trafficking. For more information, visit

  1. I will soon have a novel published and plan to promote it as best I can, including radio and TV interviews. I hadn't thought about making a list of possible questions to share with the interviewer. I would think this would be appreciated and make a writer more likely to be interviewed if he/she has good questions.
