This is the first novel for Bernie Delinski, a veteran newspaper reporter for the TimesDaily in Florence, Alabama. He has developed a following in northwest Alabama through his weekly "Bernie's World" column, and is the 2013 and 2014 recipient of the Alabama Press Association's Better Newspaper Contests for 'best feature story' in both 2013 and 2014.
Bernie is a 1987 graduate of the University of Alabama, where he majored in journalism. A native of Decatur, Alabama, he currently lives in Sheffield, Alabama, with his wife, Wendy. They have two daughters, Katie and Kelsey.
He was motivated to write this book after watching his daughters become victims of bullying and cyberbullying in high school and junior high school.
