A big welcome to my guest for the week, Juli D Revezzo. Here Juli questions why we are so willing to trust our cyber friends whilst telling our children never to talk to strangers.
When Amelia asked me to write about an issue for her blog, in all honesty, I drew a blank. I don’t tend to write issue related stories; I write my stories to give a reader a good time, or as in the case of The Artist’s Inheritance, a good scare. There, I wrote about a normal woman, hoping to live a normal life after the death of her brother-in-law. Instead, she finds out her husband isn’t having such a normal time of it.
I guess the biggest issue in the story is that of knowing whom to trust. The main character meets a man who says he can take his career to bigger and better heights—things he’s undoubtedly heard before. But there’s something about this offer that he trusts.
