JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Local author Deon Davis attended First Coast News' Anti-Bully Boot Camp on Saturday to read her book "Beanie and the Bully."
Davis said the book was inspired by her niece, who died of cancer at age 16.
After hearing about bullying victims committing suicide on the news, Davis decided to take up the cause.
Davis told FCN she plans to write seven more books in
the series as a way to teach children about the pitfalls of bullying.
