Today on The Expressive Mom Show, the focus will be on the seriousness of bullying. Miriam Slozberg is interviewing 17- year old Heather Johnson who just launched her first book, Hidden Voice- A story of discovering strengths, which targets pre-teen and teen readers. The book focuses on discovering personal strengths, life's issues while dealing with people that surround them in school and home. A short easy read, packed with drama, humor and encouragement. Heather’s main character discovers her own strengths, while fighting against low self-esteem, conquering fears of failure, despite belittling attempts from various bullies. “Hidden Voice”, inspired by the author’s personal struggles with bullying and abandonment, now encourages others to find their strengths, passions, and self-worth, while helping them learn creative expressions through reading and writing. 

Johnson began her writing career after she attended the San Francisco StoryWorld Conference and Expo in 2011, where she met her mentor Alison Norrington, from Story Central, UK. From that point on she attended the Writer’s Digest conference in New York City, where she learned how to pitch her work and how to build solid  characters.
