Ever wonder what it feels like to have it all—family, career, health, money—and not be happy?
Ann Olson takes her life for granted until her young son, Travis, disappears from the backyard one evening. Searching for her son, Ann throws caution to the wind. Soon, she finds herself enmeshed in the seedy world of Mexican drug dealers who operate just across the border in Tijuana. Does Ann, an atheist, embrace Christianity despite her husband warning that her pastor friend is more interested in converting her than in finding Travis? Does she make it out of the drug tunnel alive, or is her rashness her downfall? And is Travis’s disappearance related to that of other recently missing children in San Diego? A story of a mother’s love, courage in the face of evil, and her unexpected journey of self-discovery along the way.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I was a child living in Turin, Italy in the 1970’s, there was much talk of kidnapping. The heir to an oil fortune had been kidnapped in Rome. My parents talked about the situation a lot in front of me and my siblings. We were attending an American school and several of my Italian classmates were driven to school by their bodyguards. Years later, those impressionable times back to me and inspired the book.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Ayn Rand, Agatha Christie, Victor Hugo, Nevil Shute, Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, and I like Virginia Woolf too.
All of these authors have are responsible for depriving me of sleep at one point or another. Ayn Rand when I was younger. Agatha Christie even now.
