Peacock Writers donate their time and stories willingly to benefit charity. A different theme is picked each time and authors invited to join in. Robynn talks about her reasons for doing this.
Growing up in a parochial school, I experienced bullying first hand. I remember wondering how even though we were taught to love one another, obviously the bullies weren't paying much attention to the lessons.
During raising five children, I faced the issue again when they would come home with stories of bullies they encountered. I had to come up with some sort of direction with them, so I taught them to respect and love, even a bully.
But then the sixteen grandkids came along and I found that I had a bully amongst them. By then, after the last child had left home, I was finally able to do something I had longed to do for years, write. Many times I was asked for stories from the grandkids, so I started incorporating their personal traits into stories that would help them with their particular problem.
When Peacock Writers started thinking about a book on bullies, I realized my story on a grandchild who had to learn a lesson about not being a bully, would fit in well.
Our children learn so much in the growing up years and stories are a great way to impress little minds. I feel very honored to have been included with such great writers as my cohorts. .
