Torn between duty and self-preservation, she is thrust into a complex world in which she is honed into an instrument of power for an entity that she does not fully understand. Throughout Enora’s journey, she will uncover layers of deception that hide an ugly truth and ultimately leave her faced with an unthinkable reality. In the end she must ask herself, how far will she go to retain her humanity?

From the Author:
Imagine a world ravaged by global drought. How would the nation alter under such an onslaught? Who would seek to benefit and what would be the cost? What would be left behind for the future?


After the Green Withered

What portents
These scarce days engender
As the earth
That barren womb
Shrivels under a blistering sun I stand, mute
Trapped in cracked chasms
As my world
Chokes on a new dawn
Of humanity
