About the Author

About the Author
I am a card-carrying technology geek, having cut my teeth on BASIC on my family’s Apple II Plus computer. As a young woman with a passion for reading that equaled my interest in technology, I found science fiction titles were written with the male reader in mind. I didn’t want more space battles and buxom aliens, I wanted to know how technology would change our lives.

So I write the stories I wanted to read as a young teen.

Excellent story. I read this out loud to my three daughters because I find that there are not enough female lead characters in youth fiction. They all loved it. We all want to know more about the characters and the colony. I'm going to share this with one of the 5th grade teachers at my daughter's school. I was just talking to her the other day about a Sci-fi writing assignment that she gave to her students. What she got back was a lot of "humans fly to distant planet and start fighting with native species." She realized that this is what they think Sci-fi is. This story is a perfect example for them that there is SO much more to sci-fi than planetary colonization and inter-species warfare. It will help them expand their GREAT story!

I could really relate to the characters (especially Ali - I'm not a turtle) even thought I've (obviously) never been on a Lunar Colony :) Looking forward to reading more like this!
