My main focus is on contemporary society, and people whose personal courage is tested: the mother-child searching for what was lost after a baby is given up at birth; a man struggling to regain his courage and faith when anxiety and alcohol test his limits; a thirty-something woman experiencing the conundrum of heterosexuality, as history unravels the truth about men's natural instinct for warring, raping and misogyny.
