The thesis that follows is made up of two parts. First, there is a reflection paper, which includes a small literature review related to the topic chosen as well as a discussion of the creative process, a plan for the future of my creative work, and some issues and questions that arose during writing. Following the reflection paper is a 40 page excerpt of a young adult novel I plan to finish in the future entitled “Anastasia’s Warrior.” This excerpt follows a female main character that is 16 years of age as her mother is diagnosed with breast cancer and they navigate her treatment.
