Writer Statement

This story is intended to be an alchemical union between the genres of romantic comedies and of action. The protagonist is a woman that, although working as an assassin and being quite good at that, also happens to be a hopeless romantic. This dichotomy in her personality is the course of her discontent and what she tries desperately to reconcile, often with hilarious consequences.
