Lorena Bobbitt. Karla Homolka. Pamela Smart. Mary Letourneau. Karla Faye Tucker. Their names are recognised internationally and their haunting stories continue to grab headlines. How could these attractive, feminine, girl-next-door stereotypes be capable of such crimes as rape, torture and sexual assault? "Out of Control" details the continuing story of these convicted women - their sex crimes, their excuses, their dramatic lives, and their twisted notions of love. Supported by court transcripts, research studies, psychiatric reports and expert opinions, "Out of Control" dares to tell the truth about female sex crimes and female sexuality. It exposes the myths about love, power and gender differences and it exposes the drama and media hype that makes celebrity superstars out of attractive women criminals. Linda Stunell, a certified clinical hypnotherapist and sex counsellor, takes the reader on a fascinating journey inside the minds of celebrity female sex predators who lost control.
Linda Stunell grew up in Ottawa, Canada, graduated from Carleton University with a double major in BA in psychology and sociology, then worked variously as an interviewer for CBS, freelance film writer, counsellor female offenders; documentary film maker and developer of Star Witness a non-violent crime prevention game. She is a certified clinical hypnotherapisst and sex counsellor.
