The Ring is a love story between two girls. The idea for this book came from a situation that I found conflicting. What if the person facing you in the ring was someone you didn’t want to hit? And in what kind of a situation could you punch someone outside of the ring? 
I’ve trained boxing only as a hobby, I haven’t competed, but what makes boxing interesting are people’s attitudes towards the sport. It’s considered a violent, brutal and masculine sport. Unsuitable for girls.
