The Unlikely Spark is a symbol created by the author that represents the inspiration and passion that drives people to do what they love in the face of adversity. It stands for triumph over the odds, the refusal to be extinguished no matter how unlikely victory may seem, and the determination to create light even in the darkest of circumstances.
The author draws much of her inspiration from personal experience with the darker side of the mind and adopted the symbol as a publishing logo due to its significance in regards to mental illness. By using the symbol on each of her works she hopes to draw attention to the struggles of those who battle mental illness every day, a fight that is often hidden, ignored, or trivialized. She also hopes the symbol will encourage those in turmoil to find the fire to keep fighting, however unlikely the spark.
