As a native Houstonian, I have always been fascinated with "the great storm," which still remains the largest natural disaster in American history. In 6th grade I was handed a children's book about the Galveston hurricane of 1900 and the rest, as they say, is history. As a fiction author, I dreamed of one day crafting this very real event into a novel, where ordinary characters would face the fury of the waters head-on, exhibiting extraordinary courage. I hope that readers enjoy this story. I also hope they discover the carefully woven message of hope planted within the pages of the book.About the Author:
