Announcing, Home Is Not Home,
A Therapeutic Science Fiction Novel
For Those Who Are Sick Of Low Morality: No Profanity, No Explicit Sex, No Sickening Gore
Cuthbert, GA - In this sleepy little farming town, Dannis has embarked on a mission. Therapeutic Science Fiction. She believes that a writer must take responsibility for the youth who might read her books and stories. She believes a writer doesn't have to resort to profanity, sex, and violence because "that's reality". She thinks fiction can be a major force for good in the world, and science fiction has always been a wondrous platform for exposing social issues. In 2009, Dannis decided to launch her mission with her first book in the Home Is Series, Home Is Not Home.
Librarians and concerned parents tell Dannis they want books that include good moral values. As a psychology major in college, Dannis studied books about healthy communication, healing of abuse, and relationships. She is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Because of this, she sets a high moral bar for her writing quality. If a story contains abuse, she gives it a label of PG-13 to warn parents that they might wish to review it before recommending it to their children. When writing about such difficult topics as sexual abuse, much is implied. The emphasis is on communication, support, and healing. Dannis hopes that a person who has been abused might find these stories healing. For those who wish to understand the abused, they might learn methods of helping the victim cope.
Home Is Not Home is the first volume in the Home Is Series, which has 13 books so far. Other novels and stories [54 in all] are available for Amazon’s Kindle reading device.
