I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.
Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible
To feeling as to sight? Or art thou but
A dagger of the mind, a false creation,
Proceeding from the heat-oppressèd brain?
Macbeth, Act 2, Scene 1
What monster does your MC have to overcome?
Loren’s monsters live in her own mind. As the reader learns in #WheelerNovel, she suppressed the trauma of her childhood by stuffing her fear and anger into a pink lace music box in her mind. But, during times of high stress, the demons leak out and invade her dreams.
Sometimes though, she lets them out, using the mental anguish to block out the physical pain while racing.
In Wheeler: In Darkness, There Is Still Light, someone Loren thought was lost to her returns, but his return forces open the lid of her mental box. A web that was spun in Wheeler is cut, leaving her torn between guilt and hope.
Her journey to heal her heart continues in Wheeler: One Fire Burns Out Another’s Burning. With the help of Graham, her friends and her therapist, Loren begins to unravel who she is and what she truly wants, but the man she once loved still whispers to her.
