Finders Keepers is about a woman who gets into a terrible bike accident and falls into a coma. While she is unable to communicate with her family, she falls into a state of subconscious. Most of the story takes place in the unknown, where her body is taken apart and the pieces are separated into different worlds.
She is discovered by strange and different creatures, some of whom want to nurture her and some who want to take her further away. In the end she is challenged to find the strength to put the pieces of herself back together.
With this story I wanted to explore the world of fairy tale, that mixes the tragedy of reality with the possibilities of a mythical and dreamlike world.
I hope for this story to be an aid for those going through grief of loss, I believe the power of fairy tale allows the reader to leave a sense of reality to explore a difficult situation through a more colorful lens.
