order Anna's book


On November 4th, 2011, in Port Townsend, Washington, Anna Nasset was creating a window display after hours at the art gallery she proudly called her own. When a man appeared before her with a painting under his arm, Anna experienced the briefest moment of hesitation before opening her door—and her world—to a man who would stop at nothing in his attempts to tear her life apart from that moment forward. That is, until Anna decided to stand up and fight back.

Now a fierce public advocate for creating awareness around the discreet crime that controlled her every move for the better part of a decade, Anna shares her experience as a survivor of stalking in a ruthless fight for justice in Now I Speak.

Told through a series of flashbacks, first-person narration, and evidence from the landmark case that saw her stalker receive one of the longest sentences for the crime in U.S. history, Now I Speak delves even deeper into Anna’s personal past to uncover a history of abuse and vulnerability, each experience adding fuel to the fire of Anna’s determination.

  • 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 6 men have experienced stalking at some point in their lifetime.


  • 1 in 7 stalking victims report moving because of the stalking.

  • Stalking victims suffer much higher rates of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and social dysfunction than people in the general population. 


  • Stalking victims fear not knowing what will happen next, they lose work, they lose jobs and sometimes stalking victims lose their lives. 


  • Stalking is very rarely prosecuted due to the difficulty in proving the crime.
