She comes in contact with several characters and eventually finds love. Posey spoke with Newswatch about the publishing process. He said he didn't expect much to come out of it.

"In my mind, it wasn't really something that was that special. It actually came back on me and exploded and i had several people contact me saying they wanted to publish it really bad so i got excited and continued on" said Posey.
