As a five year old failed psychic experiment, Trish was moved from the Keeper Complex to a western slopes human village. But as a teenager, when she accidentally reads the thoughts of the village bully and defends her only friend, the villagers force her out of the village.
Now all she has to do is survive alone in her cave until the next Keeper visit, so she can report the villagers and stop their extra benefits for raising her, when they are not doing so.
This Science Fiction short story, Bird Whisperer, is based on Mannuholm, the same world as Diane J Cornwell’s Broken Series.

About the Author
Diane J Cornwell learnt to read before she started school at the age of five. At school she learnt to write the words she already recognized. She loved going to school. When she was asked to write a story on her holiday activities, Diane wrote a story on what she wanted to do, not what she did, and earned an “A” grade for the homework. That started her on a life of writing fiction. A bi-product of all that reading was creating her own stories about determined characters who try to make the right decisions the first time during their adventures. Stories she can read over and over again just for the pleasure of revisiting the characters. Diane wrote her first full length novel in 2007, and hopes to have many more stories created in the coming years.
