From the Author
After the Tsunami in Thailand, a plot started forming in my mind. It stayed with me for a few years, but I never thought about developing it any further. Until one evening, my husband told me something that I already knew. He said that if I don't start writing this book, I would always regret it. The next morning, I sat in front of my computer and wrote the first sentence. I erased it and wrote it again, then I changed it and rewrote it, and so it continued for the next twelve hours. The Passion to Survive trilogy was written in one breath. Once I started, I was barely able to stop, and the result is in front of you. I live and breathe my books. Into each one, I have instilled my values, my beliefs, and my love. In each of the characters, there is a little of the people in my life, and there is no doubt in my mind that I am truly blessed!
