Next on A Priceless Perspective we will be welcoming special guest, Terra Gay, who is a published author who writes under the pen name Jordan Trent. She is an educator, activist, and entrepreneur and was empowered to publish her first children’s book, If Tomorrow Comes and I Am Gone. She was inspired to write a book that would help families and children, who are or have been battling cancer, understand, adjust, and cope with the diagnosis.

The voice of the story’s main character, McKenzie, came to Trent after her own personal breast cancer scare. “Though young and impressionable, children are extremely resilient,” says Trent. “They are able to deconstruct some of the most complex issues, including cancer, and formulate ideas around those issues. However, as adults, we must provide them with the tools to do so.” For Trent, Tomorrow is one of those tools that will help parents and children adjust to and live with the disease. While cancer is a prominent theme of the book, Tomorrow can be used as a resource for families and children who are facing illness of any kind. Trent hopes that readers will be inspired, encouraged, and most importantly uplifted by the messages of family unity, love, and courage that Tomorrow provides.

Trent is currently working on three additional children’s books. Like Tomorrow, each is designed to help strengthen families and children. To order your copy of If Tomorrow Comes and I Am Gone, or to learn more about her work, visit www.Jordan-Trent.com or follow her on Twitter or Facebook.
