When my son was in first grade, he was bullied and we homeschooled for several years. That’s why I wrote my first book. I grew up letting people push me around and I didn’t want to see my son make my same mistakes.
Bullying is not a new thing, and it doesn’t just occur between kids. My school and community presentation focuses on several facets of bully prevention through awareness, attitude, and action along with writing skills, history, and current events as students learn about “The Power of Words in Life and Literature.”
My award-winning novel, Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light, is set in Melbourne, Florida, and in 1485 England, where a bullied boy finds his voice after he rescues King Richard’s nephews from the Tower of London. Friendship, bravery, and sacrifice, along with magic, adventure, and fantasy make this the perfect story for readers who enjoy Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
