Darlene Jonesabout this book: EWMBATTLED, Book one of my Sci-fi series, was inspired by my experiences living in Mali. The utter poverty (Mali was the 5th poorest country at the time) countered by the wonderful wide smiles of the children was heart rending.
Anything my fellow volunteers and I did, any small small gesture we made at the time to try to help, was just that--a small gesture, a drop in the proverbial bucket. In the naivety of my youth, I yearned for a magic wand to make everything better.
Mali and Malians remains lodged deeply in my heart to this day. I wrote EMBATTLED as a way to honor the people who struggle daily to survive. I had no magic wand, but I could at least write a piece that would (perhaps) heighten awareness of what goes on in much of the world and heighten appreciation for what we have here in the first world.
EMBATTLED has been described as a "think piece." A high compliment indeed.
