About M. Pax

Can also find my books in print at B&N:

M. Pax is author of the sci-fi series, The Backworlds, and the new adult science fiction fantasy The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear. A Browncoat and SG fan, she’s also slightly obsessed with Jane Austen. In the summers she docents as a star guide at Pine Mountain Observatory where the other astronomers now believe she has the most extensive collection of moon photos in existence. No fear, there will be more next summer. She lives in stunning Central Oregon with the Husband Unit and two lovely, spoiled cats.

Ba Rainey works in a Super K that has new management. Her shoes are full of Miracle Grow as a part of her experiment; she’s hoping for a miracle, a purpose in life, like a seedling.

M. Pax has a way with words. I could picture Ba clearly and could even relate to her; when I was younger, I wanted something better. This is a sweet story. It could easily be turned into a book...when her actually experiment works.

This was an intriguing story. It's pretty good as short stories go. But as all short stories, it leaves me wanting much more. I would love to see it developed into a novel.

I thought this was going to be a creepy story. So glad it wasn't. It was very cute. I wish it would have been a little longer, bit a great short story.

The story itself was okay and short. The majority of the book is an add for another book though, that took away from the story.

Great writing, story and characters. Good tight writing and got the feel and point across of the storyline in a short story. Wanted to read more about the characters and where the story would go. Hopefully she extends this story into something bigger.

Sweet, original, unexpected twist, makes you think, and short enough to enjoy with a mug of hot chocolate!

This is a very original story, I enjoyed it very much. Way too short. Ms. Pax really is good at getting into the character and what she is thinking. A very well done short story I am sure you will enjoy.

Review by: Loretta Stephenson on Aug. 05, 2011 :
Plantgirl is one of my favorite short stories by M Pax. One of my favorite paragraphs comes after "The world baffled Ba." I had to read it twice, since it was so surprising yet effective.

I also enjoyed the subtle hints of wry humor, and M Pax has a way of writing so I can "see" the story. Plantgirl has a great ending that was warm, quirky and surprising. Made me smile!

Really loved it. Not what I expected at all. I loved being in Plant Girl's head and how she viewed her life and the store. I didn't expect the boss to be a good guy!

Loved this one! Great humor tied in with a twisted logic plot. I don't want to give to much away but awesomely great end twist.
