The author's passion for literature started in elementary school. Her favorite books were from C.S. Lewis and Walter Farley. Following their style, she won a couple of contests for story writing in school. Eventually, her interest inclined for Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Eduardo Galeano among her favorites. It has been one of her lifetime dreams to write a book. Her main goal for this book was to put together in simple language a compelling and enjoyable read of a good story. Much of her inspiration happened at Vancouver Island, Canada, where she has many wonderful friends.
