About

I never expected to meet a billionaire or a genius whilst skimming the ‘Help Wanted’ ads. Cinder Slade was just that; popular magazines dubbed him the “Solar King,” when he reinvented solar energy for a billion-dollar price tag. I certainly never expected him to actually hire me--an overweight, minimum wage maid with an abrasive honest streak--either, but... there were a lot of things I didn’t expect about Cinder Slade.

Mr. Slade had everything; a beautiful mansion, paid trips to Europe, a company at his feet and the most amazing sports car I’d ever seen. No one could understand why he was falling apart; not eating, not sleeping, refusing to see clients and coworkers. No one could understand his unidentifiable paranoia and capricious rage, a strange dark side clawing at a cage of lies. Beneath the perfection, no one could see that Mr. Slade was a prisoner of his own mind.

I’d never really done anything meaningful with my life and I knew it. I’d ruined anything important I could have been a part of. And maybe I couldn’t help him, either. But I had to try.

All author’s proceeds of this book are donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the largest grassroots mental health organization in the U.S. NAMI provides valuable services, treatment, support and research to families and individuals struggling with mental illness.
Though this book is a work of fiction, many of the struggles it illustrates--depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, abuse and others--are a reality for millions. Your readership supports this worthy cause.
