Coming up 5/17/21 at 9:40am on KUCI 88.9fm -- author Amy B. Chesler shares details on her NEW book, Working for Justice: One Family’s Tale of Murder, Betrayal, and Healing

Amy B. Chesler is author of an award-winning blog and the new true crime memoir, Working for Justice: One Family’s Tale of Murder, Betrayal, and Healing, and published by Post Hill Press (and distributed by Simon & Schuster) on April 6th, 2021. In the book, Amy discusses her mother’s murder, and the harrowing efforts it took to imprison her admittedly guilty killer.

With Working for Justice, she talks about mental health, violence, & the way our social services protect or enflame each. She wrote this book in an effort to spread awareness about victim’s rights and the often difficult procedure of securing them.

When beloved educator Hadas Winnick was murdered, her sleepy, affluent hometown of Calabasas was rocked to the core. More shocking than her killing, though, was the process of convicting her admittedly guilty murderer. Calabasas is a quiet, well-to-do California town often referred to as “The Bubble.” But on September 25th, 2007, that bubble burst with the murder of one of its longtime residents—high school math teacher Hadas Winnick. The upscale community may have been deeply affected by her gruesome death, but as shocking as the tragedy seemed, the years of abuse she faced that preceded it were more so. Even more devastating still, was the effort and time it took to sentence her murderer to prison, and the power that our systems-in-place allowed him while on his way there. Follow Hadas’s daughter, award-winning blogger Amy Chesler, on her often heart-wrenching—but eventually heart-warming—road to justice.


Amy B. Chesler is an author, award-winning blogger, and entertainer from Southern California. She discovered her passion for the literary and film worlds as early as she can remember, and has been voraciously reading, writing, and performing ever since. However, it wasn’t until surviving domestic violence and freeing herself from an early life of abuse that she began to pursue her dreams professionally. Amy’s journey has led her to contribute work to many popular publications, including several Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies, TODAY Parents, and the Elephant Journal, as well as media appearances with the DVD Netflix blog, Life of Mom, Home and Family, and more. She is thrilled to be sharing her memoir, despite it being very heavy, and hopes she can help lighten other victim’s loads in the process. While not parenting, blogging, cooking, reading, traveling, and healing, Amy is happiest at home with her family. Feel free to follow her on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter at @amybchesler.
