Shatter the silence, stop the violence.“In their new book, Jane and Patti tell the complete story of Jane’s abuse, sex for big money, discovery of her true sexual identity, and her loving relationship with Patti. Her story is riveting, passionate and informative. It’s a story to be embraced by women and men who value the dignity of human life and the beauty of sexual fulfillment between loving partners.”-Norman Stephens, Emmy and Peabody Award-Winning Film Producer“Jane McCormick is a true survivor and champion for all women who have endured violence and exploitation. Her journey, and her willingness to share her story so that others may learn from her experience, is a testament to her courage, resilience, and grace.”-Tara Patet, Domestic Violence ProsecutorRat Pack Party Girl: From Prostitute to Women’s Advocate is the gutsy and wrenching story of former Rat Pack high-roller and sex-trade survivor Jane McCormick. Not only does she reveal her 1960s sexcapades with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Vic Damone, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Jerry Lewis, Bill Frawley and other celebrities, she also details her molestation by an abusive stepfather and the too-young marriage that led to her addiction to the “big money” of high-roller prostitution in Las Vegas. She survived a dangerous abortion, seedy silicone injections, years of pill popping, and the harassment of her abusive “old man,” all on a long and hard journey down a road of self-discovery. At the end of that road, she was finally able to realize her self-worth and obtain what she wanted all along: happiness fueled by the discovery of her true sexual identity as a gay woman, which has resulted in the comfort of experiencing real love in her now twenty-two year relationship.McCormick tells her story not to titillate but to educate both women and men about the life of selling sex, and to help younger women decide not to enter prostitution, to show them that getting out is way harder than getting in, and to give hope for escape to those who’ve already fallen victim. She envisions changes in federal and local laws regarding the sex-trade industry as well as a place where prostituting women can find the refuge and the help they need to put their lives in order.
