Born and raised in Oregon, Igrew up in the college town of Corvallis. An Occupational Therapist of 36 years, my talents include collecting cats like psychotic cat, Rocky (RIP) - closet monster, Tian Tian - giant fur ball with legs, Miss Bee Bee, the bed hog- and newcomer, Andy Cat (A donation to the herd). When I am not trying desperately to learn how to write active voice, a language as foreign as Mandarin, I enjoy painting space pictures from the Hubble telescope and NASA. A trip to see the Shuttle Atlantis take off a few years back let me check off one item on my bucket lis, followed by a trip to Yellowstone ( A must see for everyone). Other interests include Chinese calligraphy, knitting, and gardening – roses especially, plus service to the community via the Lion’s Club International. Every year Iturn into Mrs. Santa Claus for the annual Corvallis Downtown Christmas parade. Telling stories started at an early age with a group of pen pals taking on the persona of Star Trek characters – I was Scotty. I was prevalaged to be allow to sign the nose-cone that flew Jame Doohans ashes up to space, so a part of me got to go on with my beloved Scottsman. My stories have been published in Star Wars Fanzine’s after which I startedmy own full length novels. Writing has been a challange, a dare, and “It keeps me off the streets.” I feel honored that so many people have read and liked my novel, and so will keep on pounding the keys.

I normally read adult fiction but found this this story enjoyable and the two young protagonists learning about themselves and each other were great, each with their own lifes journey. Nice twist on the who's-the-hero story line. Recommended reading for those young folks who want to feel encouraged about becoming all they can be, girl or boy.
