About the Book

Being in the 9th grade is never easy; being bullied by those bigger and laughed at for being different. Johnny Drickerson loved to draw and found it to be an escape from the harsh bullying that he endured every day at school. All hope was lost of quelling the bullying in the school until Johnny sketched a strange symbol in the back of his sketchbook. A paper cut, a drop of blood onto the mystical symbol, and the art skills Johnny possessed yielded unbelievable results. Johnny soon discovered that his drawings were quickly becoming reality. Johnny Drickerson was no longer just a freshman struggling to find his way, but he was given the option to get away with punishing bullies or stop drawing forever. He could use his talent to get his revenge, losing his humanity in the process or find within himself the strength to calm his emotions, forgive and forget, and discover that violence is not the answer.

About the Author

In The Art of Johnny Drickerson, Johnny, like me throughout my school career, was bullied day in and day out. The raw truth of the quality of school life for those being bullied is a hot topic and one that deserves a great deal of attention. Combining the depths of philosophy within my literary works allows the reader to see through the eyes of the bullied and observe the struggles of conflicting religious morals and the overwhelming human desire to get revenge.
