BARBARIAN - the time for learning, adaptation and humility.

It is a strange and wonderful thing to have your first book in print, and with climate change so much on our mind, this book comes at precisely the right moment. The time for warnings is over, the time for action is passing, which leaves the time for learning, adaptation and humility - for we are all humbled by the voracious forces of nature, who once disturbed, will not forgive lightly.

The book is not a heavy read, for I want people to be able to read it fairly quickly. There is no time to waste, for the oceans swell as I write, and the forests burn. Yet there is still time to stop the worst of it.

Here's a little bit about the book:  

Barwin and her grandmother are living hand to mouth in a post-apocalyptic world where scavenging is the only means of survival. Capitalism, overconsumption of natural resources along with the ceaseless pursuit of profit by multinational corporations, at the expense of the natural world, have finally caught up with humankind. To top it off, millions have perished in the onslaught of the highly contagious Mallavirus. For Barwin and others who understand why the planet is finally taking its revenge, there is hope, albeit small, that they can be a part of a new beginning where respect forthe earth and all its living inhabitants is at its core. In her struggle to survive, Barwin meets people who fill her with hope and love for all living things, as well as those who inflict pain and fear in their attempts to control and dominate.
