Margaret Afseth, a Canadian novelist, grew up on the prairies. She raised her four children from preschool age to teens on her own. Now, as a widow and grandmother, through the encouragement of her family to follow her dream of writing full time, and publishing her work, she has stepped to the publishing stage in the latter years of her life.
Since her late teens, Margaret was always an avid reader and clandestine writer, but due to discouragement, and the unfortunate hard lesson in which her first novel was destroyed by a misguided counselor, she was too publisher shy to go through the gauntlet of the critics...until, that is, the ease of on line self-publishing became available.
In February 2013 Margaret published the three books of her first sci-fi thriller, the Aopato Chronicles. August of 2013, Book 1, of the Noor Chronicles, Gentle Beast, followed. Watch for Book 2 coming soon in 2014

Amazing, amusing, heart-wrenching; these stories made me cry. Kathleen deserves accolades for being so open and honest. A must read.

Though some people never learn from their mistakes, let's not be the same; that is the message I came away with from this novel. The book flows well, is suspenseful, and keeps your continual interest. A definate good read. I'll be waiting to read her next one.
