BACKGROUND:

The inspiration for the story came from Sandie's beloved father who worked in various psychiatric hospitals during short periods of his career. In the attic of one such hospital, he made a disturbing discovery - one that bothered Sandie so much, she had to create a story around it. Though fiction, many parts of the book intertwine the patient routines, treatments, and outbursts that she learned from her father and other research in a way that makes the story vivid through Jeannie's perspective.
