Best Case Scenario – Act I of Nyra's Journey
More than a year out of college, Nyra's beginning to wonder when her life gets started. Was it like this for her mother? Nyra doubts it, but things were different, back then. Her reality is nothing like her mother's.
Nyra gets that every generation faces its own challenges and she's smart enough to know it's on her to overcome them. That's why she's worked two jobs all through college, studied so hard and tried not to worry too much about her mounting student loan debt.
Still, this feeling of wading through wet cement is getting old. Buried deep in the half-formed jumble of dreams for her future, Nyra hears the siren's song of hope whispering to her. She's so ready. But is the song she hears really hope or just hopeful illusion.
Dirk Sayers, author of West of Tomorrow shines a sympathetic light on the collage of uncomfortable challenges millennials face today in this contemporary coming of age story.
About Dirk B. Sayers (Orange County, California Author)
Dirk’s path to authorship wasn’t quite an accident, but almost. It’s not that he didn’t write. He did. But through two previous careers, first as a Marine officer and subsequently as a corporate trainer, Dirk started way more stories than he finished. But in the backwash of the 2008 financial meltdown, his employer filed for Chapter 11. Cordially invited to leave and not return, Dirk found himself out of work and excuses.
Since then, Dirk has published West of Tomorrow, Best-Case Scenario and a collection of short fiction entitled, Through the Windshield. Works in progress include A Year of Maybes, sequel to Best Case Scenario and Tier Zero, Volume I of The Knolan Cycle now available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle.
