This book is about a catastrophe, as it says, but more so about an enlightenment. As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, you can suffer, or you can make lemonade.

I have always loved books. While younger, I read voraciously the classics and experimental forms of narrative. But, more recently, I’ve backtracked and started enjoying authors like Gaimen, Sachar, and Clement. My writing tends to tackle issues of spirituality, paradigms, and the way we think. My love for reading and writing has only expanded by becoming an English teacher in Korea.
