A special group of companies deals with insurance policies covering end-of-life situations. First of all, what is a difficult period for the families concerned, is only a statistical factor for those dealing with life insurance as a financial market called the “First Market”. It deals with some 1,200 billion U.S. dollars. The ethical issues are buried in the second layer of life insurance services‚ the “Secondary Market”. In this layer, policies are sold as bundled papers, a practice which can have worldwide consequences.

    About the author:

    I was born in Manhattan, New York, but was raised in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina by Kathy and Oliver Burns Jr. I have two sisters, Allison Burns and Olivia Jenkins, a brother, Oliver Burns III, and a huge loving family. I fell in love with the written word in the ninth grade after reading Charles Dickens, “Great Expectations.” I loved the way he weaved together characters and events to create mystery. I received my B.A. from Charleston Southern University and my M.B.A. from Jones International University.

    Duties of the Heart developed through lots of small stories and experiences twisted into my favorite kind of book, Fantasy Romance, where the possibilities are limitless. At the end, a whole new enchanted world was created. I hope you enjoy it.
