My journey to become a writer began in 8th grade, when I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and pulled from school to recover. During this time, I was left alone for hours on end and it was then that I discovered new friends within the pages of books. I also learned the blessing of creating my own friends by writing down the stories that plagued my lonely mind—as demented as that sounds. Therefore at the ripe age of fourteen, I wrote my first novel. It sucked! But I kept going and now I am an Indie Author with numerous books out. I never imagined that first horrible novel about a man who crash landed on his long lost home world would turn into a lifelong passion.
I now live in Chicago, IL with my amazing husband and two rambunctious kittens, Groot and Rocket.

This reads like the start of a series, where we get to meet the main character/s in a ghetto- like reservation for powerful people, and ends with hints of (many) more episodes to come.
We have our lonely ostracised female protagonist living in a dysfunctional family. Her parents want her to leave home, which in this culture means she must marry someone. People shun and fear her. Two things happen. A powerful attractive man way out of her league enters her life, and she realises she has no real future. She only has two friends, and to help one of them avoid prison agrees to use her powers in what sounds like an illegal mission. If it fails she will probably die or go to prison, either way her parents will be better off.
