An excellent article by Richard Woodbury appeared in the Chronicle Herald on November 28, 2010, as a result of a phone interview he and I had. Woodbury focused on bullying as a theme in all three of my books, with the emphasis on Home Truths. What made this book compelling for him was the difficulty of empathizing with a bully like Brick, even though Brick was doing his best to protect his little sister from their abusive father.
A quote from the article:
“…While the book is geared towards a younger audience, the topic of bullying is something that can resonate with an older audience as well.”
