Why the author wrote this book:

I didn't grow up in a Christian home, but for most of my life I believed there had to be some kind of god out there and that being a good person was important. But in 2012, tired and lonely, I decided the notion of a loving god was absurd. There was no loving god, if there was a god at all.
 
Self-gratification became the chief end of my existence, and I looked behind every door for happiness and satisfaction. I didn't find anything worth keeping though, and at the end of every new pursuit, I was still tired and lonely--and this time surrounded by a darkness and a hopelessness that was brand new and incredibly scary.
 
Then Jesus passed by, and where I saw the end, He saw the beginning. He fought for me, lifted me out of what had quickly become a murky and joyless existence, and brought me into His perfect light. I was born again in January of 2013, during the writing of this novel. This book, A Season to Dance, is the book that wrote me. I journeyed with Ana and now you can journey with us. Welcome to A Season to Dance.
