About the Author
S.L. Stoner has long pursued social and economic justice. She’s fought the “good” fight standing beside many others in prisons, free clinics, neighborhood and labor organizations. The FBI and local police have honored these efforts by producing thousands of pages detailing her activities. Stoner holds beliefs contrary to the adage that those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it. Instead, she believes that some historical actions need repeating and that ordinary peoples’ history, if know, is both empowering and inspiring. Writing in the tradition of historian Howard Zinn, she tells the stories of how ordinary people’s heroic, sacrificial and effective actions changed history. She uses fast-paced fiction to make that story both entertaining and memorable.
