Beyond Sticks and Stones, released March 14 (Bullying, Cyberbullying, Suicide)

"Stephen King shook the world with his first book Carrie that showed bullying at its worst, and then the latest film adaptation took it even further with adding the cyberbulling element to it. It's a crime that is growing and we need to be educated against it, and this book is a great place to start."

- Kipp Poe Speicher (Author)

A must read for teens, parents and teachers.

Are those who are bullied, victims? You bet! Cyberbullying, harassment, embarrassing others, tormenting, threatening or humiliating, and spousal abuse are all considered 'bullying.' It happens to children, teens, and adults. It occurs in pre-school, elementary school, college, home, and in the workplace. It is apparent in all walks of life. Bullying occurs in every town, city, state, province and country, and it has many ugly faces. But with today's technology, mobile phones, internet, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a host of other platforms, I'm going to emphasize more on children, students, and teens, because that is where it commences and for most, carries over into their adult lives.
