As a storyteller, writing is one of the few ways that help me cope with the daily struggle of chronic pain. It allows me to explore the part of the journey I am on currently and share it with fellow travelers along the way. Below are a selection of the fruits of this venture, or what I like to call “Sandcastles”.

 

Baba

Andrea Leavensly, a Pulitzer prize winning journalist, has always been fearless in the face of danger. From the mountains of Afghanistan to the war-torn villages of Iraq, Andrea will go the distance to ensure she gets first dibs on the big story. When her news agency receives a message from an anonymous source, stating that they are offering a one-on-one interview with the most wanted man in all the world, “Baba”, she is green-lighted to go and jumps on a plane to Ethiopia, her daring nature blinding her to the dangers that await her.
