Having released a string of well received speculative works of fiction, Nora Weston continues to explore the catastrophic consequences that arise from the on-going battle between good and evil. Real world concerns manifest themselves in her work, so Weston has also dedicated her adult life to teaching parents and guardians about the importance of internet safely.
Clarkston, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/13/2012 -- The minefield of good against evil has fascinated the planet for centuries. One individual who understands this is Nora Weston, an author and internet safety advocate who challenges the subject both on paper and in the real world.
Following her success with short-stories and poetry, Weston’s published releases take readers deep into a world fused with science fiction, fantasy and horror. Two of her most successful publishing endeavours, ‘Guardian 2632’ and ‘The Twelfth Paladin,’ have been received into the literary world with critical acclaim.
“Both books tackle my life’s theme of good against evil. Told through mystical battles of angels, demons, Time Mercs and other monstrous corruptions, they offer readers an opportunity to immerse themselves in a supernatural world where nothing is as it seems,” she explains.
Continuing, “However, these concepts and themes don’t just apply to the world of story. There are many real-world examples of the battle between good and evil; examples right in front of the eyes of most children.”
It is this concept that has inspired Weston’s dedicated internet safety advocacy. Regularly speaking to and tutoring parents, guardians, and listeners found across the US airwaves, Weston calls upon her vast knowledge of good against evil, to the greater benefit of society.
“Keep in mind, predators no longer have to physically hunt for children on playgrounds or look for them walking along a road. The Internet makes it all too easy for these criminals to stay hidden and use technology to bring children to them,” Weston adds.
“While the Internet is dangerous, it’s also an important tool used for education and entertainment, so keeping kids safe is of the utmost importance. Yes! Technology is great, but unplugging children and encouraging their creative development is too.”
With her passion for helping others manage life’s biggest on-going battle, Weston is currently making a direct call to offer her speaking services to any interested parties. The following topics are available as part of her public speaking remit:
- Her latest releases from Melange Books: Guardian 2632 (science fiction/adventure) and The Twelfth Paladin (supernatural/thriller)
- Internet Safety for Families: Social Networking Tips, Dangers of the Internet, Got Kids? Get Safe
- Themes found in Nora Weston’s Books: Good against Evil, Consequences for One’s Actions, Forgiveness and Hope, Be Someone’s Hero
- Writing & Publishing Tips: Market Listings, Approaching Publishers, Using an Editor’s Eyes, Book Covers, Breaking Writer’s Block, Blogging
- Creative Motivation: Unplug that Kid...Just Imagine!
“I firmly believe that a life of true horror is a life wasted. Therefore, I am available to educate, provide information and inspire any person or group who wants to understand how good can always prevail,” Weston concludes.
