A Great #CyberAware #Book Discussion in Kuna

One of the BEST things about being an author is discussing the book with readers. Last night, I met with a wonderful group of young women and their leaders in Kuna, Idaho. We discussed the novel, WHO R U REALLY?, online safety strategies, and what it's like to be an author.

An important item we discussed is the concept of meeting together as a family to create a set of Internet safety rules for the whole family to follow. If parents can have access to their children's accounts, should children be afforded the same privilege to check on their parents? Why or why not? This is a great thing for families to talk about and work together to keep everyone safer online.

When I asked the group for a single reason why they needed to have Internet access in the privacy of their bedrooms (which is something I argue against) they came up with the best excuse I've ever heard: So they can watch sad movies and cry without anyone seeing them.

The main consensus was that the character, Tim, should be a real person who lived happily ever after with Thea.

And everyone wanted to know why Cynthia's nickname was spelled Thea instead of Thia.

A great turnout for the book discussion!

Lucky winner of a signed copy of WHO R U REALLY?!
