" He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how." Nietzsche

Background Information

Broken Mirror is my first novel. I wrote it out of neccesity. It may or may not be of importance to you - but more than will. This is a story of lies, betrayal, hearbreak, and judgement. Like so many others, I have experienced all of these things. I lost both of my parents as a teenager. To be mild, the world was not kind to me, especially the world of men. As a result I carried with me shame, abandonment, and an abundance of grief. I carried my heavy baggage way into my thirties. It was the only friend I allowed. I was broken and some in society as well as in the workplace ridiculed, falsly judged me, and took what was left of my fragile self-esteem. It was hard for me to find meaning in the simplicity of everyday living. I was broken. Then something wonderful happened that literally saved my life. I was given a book to read called, "Man's Search for Meaning", by Viktor Frankl. Viktor was a holocaust survivor in Auschwitz and other concentration camps. In his book he writed that the basic motivation of humans is the will to find meaning. If that is so then surely there is meaning to be found in suffering.. He continues to write that love is the essence of life, the one thing that brings meaning to experience. When I understood those words, I was able to release all of my emotional burdens and live in the "now". My novel reflects such ideas as the characters in it must face their own meaning in suffering.

Additional Information

I am a native of oklahoma and currently finishing my second novel, "The Cubicle", as well as working on several other fictional books. Broken Mirror is my first published novel. Reviewers have compared my writing that that of O'Henry because of the great detail I try to give concerning the human condition as well as vivid descriptions. I hold a Masters degree in human resource development and training. I plan on entering the doctoral program in communication in 2008. I am a poet and lyricist of many different works as well as a professional singer since the age of 14.
