About the author:
Eslynne Smith grew up a Navy brat and experienced life as both an enlisted and commissioned spouse. A Democrat married to a Republican, Smith's blended family includes two children from his first marriage, one from hers, and two they had together.
Smith suffers from PTSD and is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, experiences she used to create the backstory for Taming the Tida. Now retired, her work history includes bill collecting, mortgage underwriting, and negotiating repurchase agreements for failed mortgages.
Her ability to see trends has served Smith well in the past, helping her see the importance of the 2016 elections and the need for both parties to field authentic candidates.
Taming The Tida
In 2014 the nation was in crisis. Partisan politics were the rule of the day, stifling and sabotaging meaningful change in Washington. Americans were desperate for someone—anyone—to offer them hope, to show them there was indeed a light at the end of the tunnel.
That hope came in the form of Sharmin Smith, a contestant on the breakthrough reality show Who Wants to Be President? Designed to increase voter participation and heal a deeply divided nation, Who Wants to Be President? pitted contestants against each other in speeches on America's most pressing issues, from abortion and health care to immigration and the economy.
Smith, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, caught the country's attention, delivering her unusual, groundbreaking opinions with two service dogs by her side. She gave a nation hope, and in return, Americans gave her their trust.
The first book of the Change the World trilogy, Taming the Tida gives hope to those tired of contemporary political gridlock and looks to a brighter tomorrow.
