I struggle not to react to every injustice in the world through my fiction. I often want to confront the beast of political stupidity head on. However, penning a scathing tale of inhumanity doesn’t tend to gel with a 50k word Romance.
So, instead, I offer counterprogramming to the hate. My stories offer a break from the heartlessness. An alternative to the spiteful rhetoric present everywhere you turn.
Is it enough? Of course not.
But it is something.
I comfort my troubled heart with that.
