The Raindancer: Finding Joy in the Storm is about good friend’s battle with cancer. I know . . . people hear/read the word cancer and all the fun is instantly sucked out of the room. And that’s understandable as cancer is a horrible disease. Couple that with the knowledge that the titular character dies and yes, you might assume the story’s going to be a downer—but it’s not.

And that’s something you don’t read about everyday.
