I dream of a world…

I dream of a world
without bullying, rape, abuse,
Without homophobia, sexism, or racism.
No more murder or violence or people causing pain.

I dream of a world
with only compassion, love, and healing.
Where empathy and kindness come first.

I wish it was now.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
