Why I Wrote the Sack

For years, I never understood why I felt so compelled to write. Now that I have written The Sack, I have the answer: I want whatever I say to mean something in terms of helping those unable to speak for themselves. First, for our children. But beyond that, for anyone who wears a sack of restrictive social pain.
I can’t do a lot. I can’t work miracles. But I can offer my “widow’s mite” of compassion in the work I do. And now that I am well into ERIS: The Blood Red Fields, I feel an even greater sense of dedication.
For as long as I can write and have that to give, I have vowed to face whatever I must in doing it.
