Do You Believe in Karma?

That is a fundamental question in my next novel, KARMA VISITED, a paranormal suspense which is currently in production at VHP (...and I am so excited!)

What does Karma mean to you?

Undersheriff Dave Turner tells Annie how he feels in this mini-excerpt:

“There’s no such thing as karma or justice.”
“Wow, I didn’t realize you were such a cynic.” He said his word gently.
“I’m just realistic. I’ve seen too much Dave. Tornadoes are random, there’s nothing about karma to those.”
“Maybe karma in those cases just means it’s not as bad as it could be.”
“What’s not bad about dying in a fire because the firefighters can’t get through a locked gate?”
Dave exhaled slowly. “Suffering. Dying alone without a… traveling angel to hold your hand? No matter how bad things may seem, if you aren’t alone in the world it’s just a little easier. Bad things do happen, you can’t deny that, but when you have people to hold you and stand by you, it’s got to help.”
