I'm a writer and former newspaper reporter who was moved to write my serialized, on-line novel, America Rising, by the increasing realization that the institutions of our country, from the "free press" to business to the government, no longer work for the majority of the America people. I wanted to explore some of the ways we might take the country back from the rich and powerful individuals and corporations that have hijacked it for their own purposes, yet do so through the eyes of people not committed to a particular ideology but to a basic sense of fairness and belief in Abraham Lincoln's words, "that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth."
