    My question isn’t on the list:) . I am so curious where you got the inspiration to write this book. Do you have dreams, nightmares? Where did the writing of this book originate? A thought? An event? A belief?

    • Thanks so much for asking! I wrote the book during the Bush presidency (though it applies even more now). I was stressed by what seemed like a callous and short-sighted avarice, a system that worked for the few and left everyone else out. The gist of the book is that no one is exempt from the destruction. We must open our eyes and see without all our protective biases in order to build a new future. So despite all the darkness, there is hope. ❤ Thanks so much for the visit and Happy Reading!

        Thanks for sharing some back ground info. The excerpt looked so intriguing to me.
        I love that there is hope in the darkness. Kind of my motto these days
