Authors Goal: My goal is to have you to crack a smile, be inspired, be reminded of something important, change poor habits, and if I don’t I want you to let all of your friends know that I didn’t. Tell them to read this for themselves. Try to get them to agree with you. And if you do, I’m going to thank you for spreading my book word of mouth. No, really I hope you enjoy this and the later editions of my 1000-series. I don’t know exactly where this is going to lead me, but I want to make sure that I continue to enjoy every bit of writing.

That sense of security is shattered in October of 2012 when Hurricane Sandy barrels into New York.
The super-storm devastates Ocean Breeze, destroying both property and lives. But in the aftermath, Laurie is touched by how the community comes together with volunteers and churches from around the world to help restore some semblance of normal life. While many do their utmost to help, however, others see opportunity in tragedy.
Battling the city and government agencies for the aid Ocean Breeze desperately needs becomes a daily challenge as red tape and politicians more interested in photo opportunities than actually helping residents who have lost everything delay much needed aid for months on end.
Despite the setbacks, the community rallies and ultimately shows strength, resourcefulness, and mutual support that Laurie cannot forget.
Life after Hurricane Sandy is written in honor of those who refused to let political wrangling and a natural disaster destroy their neighborhoods. Where the state, government, and city failed, people helping each other succeeded.
