I started doing interviews in order to raise awareness of bullying and for people to see and be emboldened by the fact that others are sharing their stories. I want it to show others that they are not alone, that others have gone through bullying and are stronger for it. Perhaps these stories will make others feel more confident to speak up and get the help they need, that victims of bullying will no longer stay silent and face it alone. There are many of us against bullying and we will stand strong and united. I love incorporating standing up to bullying themes in my books as well as the power of friendship and how friends can help each other overcome anything.
