About this author

Corban Addison holds degrees in law and engineering from the University of Virginia and California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.

Lauren I read A Walk Across the Sun before it came out and I fell in love. The topic of Human Trafficking has always held a special place in my heart. I've read numerous non-fiction books on the topics and I found your novel to mirror a lot of the facts I've read in those books. You told this story in such a beautiful heartbreaking way, I'm pushing this novel on my youtube channel and on all my friends. Gorgeous work.
