The new short story.

I am old enough to remember the agonies of teen years before the internet age. Bullying, pressure to conform, and peer pressure existed then, but at least it was face to face, and one could make a bully pay if one was up to it. Which I was. However things have changed and young people now must face the horror of cyber bullying. Shaming, revenge porn, impossible ideas of beauty, and trolls all add up to a real struggle for anyone who is remotely different or who does not conform.

The new short story.

This story is inspired by the idea that being different need not end in defeat. Victory over the pressures to conform is possible – so this story is dedicated to all who dare to be different.
