Bullying and School Shootings – What Has Happened?

For some, school is a nightmare. Each and every day made a living hell by those who are stronger, bolder, without kindness or compassion.

What happens to one who lives in fear?

One who is pushed to their breaking point?

One who simply wants to be accepted?

We can’t escape the headlines of mass murders occurring in our schools. The very place where children are sent to be educated. The very place where they should be safe and free from danger.

Sadly, school shootings have become the new normal. These horrific crimes and events lead us to ask –

Is a mass murderer born or created?
What makes a school shooter?
Is it availability of guns?
Is it mental illness?
Could it be something else?
Shouldn’t we look for a cause?


This novelette explores these questions.

“Who am I?”20190630_1305207795170130459536580.jpg

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to please visit my website,

purchase a copy and leave a review.

I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell. 

Thank you,

One thought on “Bullying and School Shootings – What Has Happened?

  1. Joe, I just received your book, “Tortured and Tormented: Creating a School Shooter” today and read the entire story. It was so powerful and I found myself wiping away tears as I read. Yet, I couldn’t put the book down. I would recommend my friends to pick up a copy. The world needs to know what bullying does to people and the devastation it can leave behind. Thank you for recommending it!

    Here’s the link to my personal story of school bullying, “From Victim to Victor: A Survivor’s True Story of Her Experiences with School Bullying), Have a great week!
