About My Time-travel Novel
BACK TO SCHOOL MOM
By Patricia Backora
Every victim of injustice wishes he could go back in time and make old wrongs right.
Sandy Girard Franklestone, a fitness instructor/martial artist, has a paranormal experience where she goes back to
the year 1985 to defend her younger self against school bullies. Sandy (alias
Cindy Franks) gets a temporary job at her old high school. Mentored by her martial
arts instructor, Tojo Wakasaki, Cindy formulates battle strategy to thwart the worst of the attacks and put evil Brad Bullard
in his place. Cindy discovers that
bad attitudes deeply ingrained in the adults in Little Sandy's life are harder to defeat than the physical acts of violence
perpetrated against her.
My own experiences with being bullied at school, and especially the ongoing problem of school bullying in today's schools,
inspired me to write the book. I did some research on the Internet about the
language and teenage fashions of the 80's, and some on martial arts moves. Cindy hates violence but she must sometimes use
force to prevent people she loves from being hurt.
I learned that part of the inner healing process we go through must be achieved by sharing the wisdom we gain through
pain. Sandy realizes what it cost her (her feeling of childhood innocence) to
go through bullying, and she fights on to try to justify the cost of what she had to become to grow stronger. She realizes
that bullying is not just a kiddie game but a CRIME, and part of her mission is to make bullying illegal in the future.
Because of difficulty in finding a traditional no-fees print publisher, I have made this book available for FREE online
reading so its crucial messages can get out.
