You have been victimized by bullies throughout your middle school and high school years. You are an adult now, and you survived those horrible years of psychological and physical abuse. But, there is a problem.

Winston-Salem author Mark Stewart in his new book “Names Will Hurt Me: Healing for Victims of Bullying” strives to help victims validate their pain; illustrate how damage from the trauma can sabotage careers and relationships; and begin the healing process.

An under-explored area in bullying is the effect it has on people in their adult years. Coping is a key focus of the book.

Stewart vividly details his harrowing experience as a victim of bullying, the manifestations of that experience as a young adult, and how he coped on the road to healing.

Untold thousands of people are likely to see themselves contained within the confines of Stewart’s gripping and often graphic recall of his experience.

He writes, “My struggle to overcome the psychological damage from the bullying led me to write this book.”

Stewart would be the first to tell you he has come a long way from being the scared victim of bullies and troubled young man as a result of the bullying to the man he has become today.

Today, Stewart is a graduate of Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Ill., where he earned both a B.A. degree in English and an M.A. degree in Mass Communications and Media Arts. He is a well adjusted husband and father with more than 20 years of experience as a writer, photographer and graphic designer.
