“Love What You Do”

Every time I would crack open a book, or sit in a movie theater, my heart would sing. “I want to do that,” I would always say to myself. “I want to create stories for people to get lost in, to be moved by.” But I never had the guts. Then one day, a friend and I were chatting and she looked at me and said, “You have to write a book. You just have to.” So I sat down, and wrote a book! There is nothing better than spending the time you’re given working on something that inspires you, moves you, and makes your heart sing. Writing is that for me. I was lucky to find it. Whatever you do, make sure you love it, because the work will become such a joy. And I so hope that you enjoy reading my work and my first novel, The War Inside.

Synopsis: The end of the world is only just the beginning. So eighteen-year-old Thea discovers when her solitary life on a dying Earth is shattered by a mysterious dream, a devastating choice, and a strange gift that propels her on a journey towards the restoration of all mankind.

Thea is bitter and alone; eking out her miserable life on the sunless, cloud-covered Earth she inhabits. A terrifying dream convinces her to save the life of an injured girl, and despite her misgivings, Thea decides to rescue sixteen-year-old Viviana. She soon learns that gentle Viv has a life-threatening infection, as well as a freakish patch of glowing skin over her heart. When this light spreads to Thea, causing her palms to glow, she is forced to trust Caden, an arrogant, lazy, and annoyingly handsome boy she despises. Caden has a map to the last city on Earth, and the only place that might have a cure for both Viv's infection and the strange light on Thea's hands. As the trio embark on a journey through the barren wilderness, Thea and Caden discover, and try to fight, their mounting attraction to each other. Along the way they are joined by Rain, Naomi, and Enoch who explain that the light is not a curse, but a powerful gift meant to heal the polluted Earth and reconnect the remnants of humanity. When the group learns that Viv is the key to this planet-wide redemption, and that there are deadly shadows who will do anything to keep humans in the darkness forever, they each must make the difficult decision to help Viv fulfill her destiny...and save the world.
