Editorial Reviews

Review

"I don't see many YA crime books around, and this was an absolute delight. A far cry from the good old days of Nancy Drew, we have an intelligent and thrilling read. You treat the violence with care, making it realistic, subtly horrific without painting the scene red, and strong characters make this a brilliant read." ~ A. Knight

From the Author

Writing 'Sticks and Bones' has been a journey unlike any other I have experienced in my lifetime. The project began in 2005, when my three daughters were all in junior high and high school; each of them having their own unique clique of friends.

A common, and all too frequent, conversation in our home was the subject of, what they called, "drama"; what we adults call bullying. "Sticks and Bones" was born out of these conversations with approximately 28 teens contributing to the story.

Bullying is a significant part of "Sticks and Bones". As you journey through the story, you will discover, as I did, bullies aren't born - they are created. Sometimes, bullies grow up and out of their behavior, sometimes they don't. Sometimes the bullied take their own lives to stop the pain, but sometimes, just sometimes, bullies find other ways to either cope with their pain; or end it once and for all.

In writing this, my first novel, I discovered the bullies aren't always found in the hallowed halls of the educational institutions. I discovered, society is filled with bullies from behind the closed doors of our homes, in the workplace, to the halls of our schools.

"Sticks and Bones" is dedicated to all the teenagers who feel they are not good enough, strong enough, brave enough, straight enough, or worthy enough to be viewed as human beings.

Everything I needed to know I learned in Kindergarten; and so did they.
