A daughter, sister, wife, mother, and now, out of unforeseen and undesired circumstances, an author. Deborah Berry has spent her adult years devoted to her family. Her heart’s desire has been to raise her children to be loving, productive, and contributing members of society – every parent’s dream!
Deborah graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in journalism and wrote for the UH newspaper. Later, as her family grew, she enjoyed volunteering at her children’s schools, dabbled in interior design, and was sought after as an independent floral designer.
Then her world exploded. Her youngest daughter, at age ten, was lured into a virtual world of manipulative strangers. Upon discovery, Deborah entered into the fight of her life for her daughter against the dark and torrid world of online pornography and sex trafficking. After years of difficult decisions and tough love, Deborah started her journey to write The Tech Trap as a personal effort to absorb what had happened and to gain information about technology and teens.
As she continued researching and developing The Tech Trap, her mission evolved to equip parents with knowledge and awareness of the strangers who seek to gain a connection with their child through technology.
Deborah has focused her energy and the passion gained from the experience of saving her daughter from the demon strangers online and the aftermath of consequences, into The Tech Trap, a book written with one purpose in mind: to provide as much information as possible to other parents so they never have to walk through a similar nightmare.
