Sometimes life emulates fiction.

Life is filled with tragedy and Ms. Bale's writing reflects this reality. However, there is always a silver lining...even if one must spend their entire life searching for it.

In her previous career, Ms. Bale traveled the United States as a Government Relations Liaison, working closely with Congressional offices and various government agencies. This experience afforded her a glimpse into the sometimes "not so pretty" reality of the political sphere. Much of this reality and various locations throughout her travels make it into her writing.

She dreams of the day she can return to visit Alaska.

WRITING!

No seriously, if it weren't for the ability to write, my head would literally explode. There's so much rattling around up there, haunting me at every turn, that writing has become an outlet that frees my mind from turmoil and torment. Writing is my catharsis.

Now from what, I'll let you decide. :-o(less)

“Never judge someone by their relatives.”
Charles Martin, Chasing Fireflies: A Novel of Discovery

“In order for me to live life to the fullest is to not enjoy every minute. Enjoying every minute takes meaning out of them. In order to truly appreciate the joyous moments in life, we must embrace the painful ones and keep them in memory.”
