LOL, I do tend to rant a bit about the topic, in part because I can relate to how it feels to be unrepresented in science fiction. When I came up, there were very few female protagonists in science fiction, let alone Native American protagonists of any sex. Even today, when I peruse the science fiction section at the bookstore, I rarely see another woman looking for books -- well, except for the Twilight fans. My sister has actually had men comment on how unusual it is to see a woman who reads sci-fi.
Well, I've been a fan of science fiction since I was old enough to pick up at book and read it. You see, I was pretty young, but I remember seeing the first man on the moon, on our static-filled, grainy, black and white television. When I saw that we were in space, and I discovered science fiction, I was through. And then, when I was in the 8th grade, a teacher read to us from The Hobbit every day after lunch. Yes, I was hooked for life.
Anyway, I'd like to invite you to come over, meet Alicia, check out her website and books, and read about Alien Star Books!
Have a great day my friends, I'm going to get to work and immerse myself in writing about gardening. The bills must be paid, you know!
