Yoga teacher, healer and now, novelist: former Little River resident Troy Springer has written a dystopian/utopian novel titled Beyond Mortal: Stewards of Gaia. Set 300 years after a climate apocalypse wipes out most life on the planet, the book reflects Troy's childhood in Michigan, the set of values her parents taught her, her background as a yogini and healer in Canada, and the current challenge of climate change.
