"The Last Spirit Child" (In Kindle and Amazon, available both as ebook or print)

Self dislike plagued her childhood. Deemed a child of mountain spirits, she was outcasted at birth. Though she was adopted by a loving couple she felt that she did not belong. She had a small sense of self, one that she worked hard at having - the self that occasionally made her parents proud. She had fears of laughter. She was anxious at the price that every joyful laughter might exact for itself. The struggle for confidence was tough. Her self doubt was a sword of Damocles that constantly hung over her head. The journey to her holy grail of self-worth has been unforgiving. This was her story.
