About the author (2006)

Rose Marie Hemmings is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame with a degree in Government and International Relations and concentrations in related studies.  Since college, Hemmings has held various positions in executive management, which she uses to look back through a slightly detached lens at intellectual ideas from a real world and comical perspective.  The author as a painter, photographer, and lover of art explores the tension between that which we find aesthetically beautiful and ideas of justice, respect, and equality.  In particular the author likes the concepts of appearance versus reality and irony, to twist words and ideas that could have various different meanings from different perspectives to unveil the truth of each character.  The truth that lies in the gray like the light in Plato's cave, gives us empathy for one another and an understanding that our fates are inextricably linked.
