Susan Adair Harris brings a widely diverse background in screenwriting, academic writing, play writing, and editing a professional online photography magazine to her novels. The variety of her interests is illustrated by her service as an officer on the boards of a tourist steam train, a state association for adult educators, and a rural fire department auxiliary. She recorded audio books for the Library of Congress Talking Books program; taught theatre, communication, and language arts courses in secondary and post-secondary institutions (including college courses in a corrections setting); and coordinated a regional professional development resource center. She designed and delivered state adult education trainings, broke and trained her own horse, helped raise a family plus numerous dogs, cats, horses and a donkey, and sold her original art.
Marguerite Garcia’s plans for her future are torn apart by circumstances beyond her control—the 1978 “disappearances” in Argentina, forcing her to learn what it means to both survive and live. Born in the USA out of the violence, her daughter Pia must carve a path forward into a life that is unpredictable and often unfair—trading brutality for beauty and hopelessness for unconditional love.
