When she learns of a deeper truth surrounding the Happy State, that the government seeks to eradicate mental illness in order to create a pure and perfect race, the urgency to protect her father becomes paramount.

About The Author

Samantha Fitzgibbons

I am a creative writer and blogger; my fictional writing often reflects real life issues such as mental illness. Rather than try to endure the exhausting and relentless fight with both the ailment and the stigma attached to it, I try to encourage fellow 'angsty's' to embrace their over zealous resident.

My writing largely reflects my multifarious background; a free willed, artistic creative, drawn to a desire to understand the criminal mind. I am nothing if not light and dark, creative and lateral thinking.

I have just completed my debut novel, 'The Happy State' which considers a newly independent England and a governmental bid to create a happy state for its people. But when a fanatical neo- Nazi military leader joins forces with a gullible, power hungry leader, it seems that happiness will be sought only by eliminating mental illness for once and for all.
