Stepping back to reflect often offers new insights not only
into one’s own life but also about the universe that surrounds us. Explore
these revolutionary ideas with Amy Jean in her new book, A Step Back
(available January 2021)— lively illustrations and photos accompany poetry and prose. Like a
lexicographer, she investigates and challenges the definitions of love, weight,
face, truth, and time. She creates her own dictionary and constructs new
definitions to dig deeper into the meanings of those words—even formulating the
word, Fanticity – (v) – when your Faith in something or someone has held you
caged so long that you are driven to insanity.
Readers embark on a self-discovery journey that critically, yet
playfully, analyzes truths. This dream-like memoir becomes an immersive
experience that covers everything from heartbreak to parenthood, sanity, and
religion. Anyone who feels misunderstood or cast aside can relate to A Step
Back. By exploring her past, she seeks a vibrant, independent future.
