Yvonne Eve Walus

Author Bio:You won't believe this, but when I'm not a novelist I'm actually a Doctor of Mathematics. A wife and a mother.

Excerpt/Blurb:

Danger!!! Internet chats are immediate and intimate, but sometimes they only create the impression of a relationship. Sometimes they break hearts. Sometimes they claim lives. Danger!!! The Internet makes many things look ok even though they are not: porn, sex parties, talking to strangers. It changes the rules and the way the world works. Danger!!! Internet People are not always what they seem. When your 13-year old daughter pretends to be 15 and in a dating chat room with a 40-year old guy... how far would you go to protect her? Week 1-This is a transcript of a chat I found on my daughter's computer. Well, not the whole transcript, which was full of stuff like 'random' and 'weird' and 'whatever'. What follows is only the salient bit.-

Tom16: Need to tell u something important. A secret.

Alicia15: Ok ... :-)

Tom16: Not sure if I can trust u.

Alicia15: Why not?

Tom16: Lots of people online aren't who they say they r. If I hear ur voice, I'll know u r not a middle-aged perv posing as one of us.

Alicia15: Makes sense.

Tom16: So. Do u have a mobile?

Alicia15: Yeah. But no.

Tom16: A webcam?

Alicia15: Forget it!

Tom16: Just kidding. How about photos then?

Alicia15: Plural? That's greedy!!! LOL

Tom16: Anybody can have 1 pic of a 15yo girl. If u have 5, u may be for real.

Alicia15: Dunno. I'm not cool with sending my photos.

Tom16: Come on. It's not like giving ur home address or the gold, u know?

Alicia15: GTG PAW
