The Intransigence (Author Interview)

The Intransigence looks like an exciting dystopian fiction book.  What can you tell us about it?

The Intransigence is a Young Adult Dystopian fiction novel centering around a young woman, Rossana, who was cryogenically frozen and wakes up in a world devoid of language.


How long did it take you to write The Intransigence?

I started writing The Intransigence in 2019 and just finished this year, so about three years, with a break in the middle. The break allowed me to take a fresh look at the story, the characters, and the ideas themselves to format them into something that would work best for the intended audience.


What inspired you when writing The Intransigence?

When I started writing The Intransigence, I had been studying energy and quantum physics and became certified in something called the Emotion Code. This study inspired to me to see possibilities outside of our physical norm.


Can you tell us a little about the main character?

Rossana is 16 but was, essentially, frozen in time when she was cryogenically frozen before dying of cancer. She grew up an only child and was the center of her parents world. Throughout the novel, she comes to grips with how she views herself and how her parents viewed her to become who she truly is.


What will readers get out of your book?

My hope is that readers will see that life is more than the physical world around us and that there is so much outside our realm of understanding. The belief in miracles, supernatural, and more can help to bring hope to readers of all ages.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Intransigence?

For me, endings are often the most challenging because I base my stories off of real life, and real life doesn’t have any endings, not even in death really. So finding a way to bring the story to a close was definitely the most challenging.


What do you like to do when not writing?

When I’m not writing, I love being part of and watching anything musical theatre/Broadway. I also love spending time with my dog Hamilton and exploring outdoors with my boyfriend, Mike.
