    Hasten the Rising delivers an inspiring message to women of all ages. While it focuses, specifically, on the common and potentially-dangerous challenges in our intimate relationships, it champions, more broadly, the innate beauty, worth, and power of all women. It is a great dose of self-esteem and a siren call for all women to unleash their dazzling color, their unique style, and their dynamic strength.

    In January 1996, a van speeding through a red light ended the life Kara Swanson had known. She suddenly joined the two million Americans who suffer brain injury each year. It was like being thrust into a foreign country with no map, no way to speak the language, no directions home. Written with laugh-out-loud humor, candor, and technical input from medical and legal professionals, I'll Carry the Fork! offers inspiration and practical help to anyone dealing with the aftermath of brain injury. Because, as Kara says, "Sometimes when your life ends, you don't actually die."

    Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that's what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now 19 and one step away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles. Desperate to appear normal, she represses the young man flickering at the edge of her awareness - a blond warrior only she can see. But when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced to consider the possibility that this young man is not a hallucination after all - and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.
