A note from the book visionary, Marina Mars:

"The idea for the Chrome Chronicles came out of a moment steeped in appreciation. It was October 2017, and I was sitting in bed watching TV, reflecting on the community I had never truly taken a step back and looked at before. Like Narnia, it isn't a place you seek - it seeks you. Look, I've traveled and performed in different places and industries - and there is something special happening here that should be documented, shared, and celebrated.

Secondly, I knew that as we approach the the point of total reflection as elderly people, we would want to bind this energy in a physical object, point to it and say "I sure did something in this lifetime. We lived a good life." Lastly, I'm not a fan of being categorized. I didn't want to segregate. I didn't want us to be ranked. Inside these pages, we are all on the same level - a human level.

We would stand together, side by side in a way that the rest of our country and it's history may frown upon. Together, we are united by chrome.
