I am a wife, mother of two, author and daydreamer — my head is always in the clouds. Just recently, my books have been accepted into the local library, and local bookstores. I am very excited to have signed a contract with an indie publisher -- very grateful. A military family, over the course of ten years, we have gone from Texas to New Jersey, to the midwest. Over the years, I’ve written several novels and finally decided to stop hiding them out of fear.

Beauty, pain, drugs, sex: repeat. Monroe Song, who considers herself nothing more than the wife of a terrorist, is struggling, failing, and drowning, trying to find her place in a world that has left her at the brink of insanity: Her husband, Carter, has opened fire at a mental health facility, before turning the ruthless gun on his sons, then himself.

 

Emptied wine bottles, and pills which bring her no relief or comfort, drive Monroe into the arms of Dominique, a man half her age, who offers her the perfect anecdote for her brokenness.

 

Monroe's oldest son, Karter, once idolized his father. Karter is now haunted by his father's face, words, and the massacre that is now his family legacy.

If Karter's hero is a monster, a terrorist, who brutally murdered innocent people, what does that make Karter?

 

How can Monroe and Karter move forward when life has forgotten them? Then, again, with everything so distorted, why not spiral with the storm?
