About the Author
Praise For Cold Calls…
"Bullying, blackmail, and bad choices are interwoven through this cautionary tale in a manner that's relatable and engaging."
"With a quick pace, this psychological thriller takes readers for a ride, providing clues to the secrets the characters are trying to hide but without disclosing all of the information until later chapters. The coldness of the caller in relation to the damage he/she is doing to the bullying victims as well as the blackmail victims is particularly chilling."
