Ms Torres released her new controversial and provocative book, "ABUSE HIDDEN BEHIND THE BADGE in July 2010."

The 2011 International Latino Book Awards Celebration was Wednesday, May 25, at el Museo Del Barrio, New York City, during Book Expo America. Ms. Torres has been a vocal activist against domestic violence involving women, children and men for the past 3 yrs. Ms. Torres' involvement in this mission came out of her own personal experience as a survivor of domestic violence involving police officers.

Rosaura Torres was born on February 26, 1960 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to parents of Puerto Rican descent. Ms. Torres now resides in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her mother's name was Carmen and her father Ismale Torres. They taught her never to give up, to continue forward regardless the challenge. They were hard working and loving parents.

Ms. Torres is the mother of three children and grandmother to three grandchildren.

Ms. Torres comes from a modest and humble background. During her childhood, Ms. Torres attended schools in Philadelphia; Camden, New Jersey and Fort Myers, Florida.

Ms. Torres has a range of talent and experience from being a Receptionist, Administrative Assistant, Fitness Consultant, Sales Executive at Al Dia Newspaper to serving as Public Relations Coordinator for pharmaceuticals in Camden, New Jersey.

Due to two (2) retinal detachment surgeries stemming from her experiences with domestic violence, Ms. Torres is an avid activist speaking out against domestic violence and more specifically "The Code of Silence" within police departments. She stands for the right of everyone regardless your gender. "You have the right to not get violated!" says Ms. Torres.
