No Haven Here
I have recently completed a novel.
In No Haven Here, the lives of several multinational volunteers converge in Guatemala for a project at a jungle orphanage, resurrecting struggles from their pasts rather than the escape they’d each hoped for. The novel centers on a now-cynical young woman who would prefer to face corrupt governments, shady investors, and street gangs rather than her burgeoning relationship with a U.S. Military pilot.
Ultimately, it is a story about how we forge meaning from the trauma in our lives, of friendship and forgiveness, and the hard choices we make to protect those we love.
