The first occurrence was when a friend contacted me, worried about her fourteen-year-old daughter, who had fallen for a guy she had met online. It became apparent to the mother that her daughter’s new friend was much older than he said he was and she feared that her daughter was being groomed by a predator. When the mother phoned the guy to confront him, he hung up, disconnected his phone and never made contact with the daughter again. Police were unable to identify him.

Over the next two weeks, three cases involving teenage girls being groomed and lured away by online predators were reported in local papers. The number of incidents in our community involving this issue caused me so much concern that I started researching it. At first I had no thoughts of writing a book about this subject. I was acting as a worried and protective mother of three children who were yet to reach the age where they would be users of social media. To realise how easy and riskless it was for predators to meet, groom and lure unsuspecting people was disturbing.

Somewhere in this process an idea for a book came to me, and once the characters were so vivid they seemed real, and when scenes played out in my head as though I was watching a movie, I began writing Risk. (less)

Hi Deanna,

Thanks for your message. Unfortunately Risk isn't yet available as a paperback in Canada, however it is available worldwide as an audiobook through Audible.

The audiobook version of Risk is narrated by Australian actress Marny Kennedy and she did a fantastic job.

I hope this helps.
