My latest children’s book

If you have read:

Ruby & Nolan’s Great Adventures in Space Book 1: The Science Project, 2: The Hatchling, 3: The Keep, 4: The Others, 5: The Wormhole,  you can skip right over to Chapter 1 of Ruby and Nola’s Great Adventures in Space Book 6: Merpeople.

The Weller family, consisting of Ty, Robin, Ruby, Nolan, and Pebbles their dog, agreed to be part of a settlement on a newly discovered uninhabited planet several light-years from Mother Earth.  I am not sure Pebbles, their dog agreed to go, I think she was happy to go anywhere with them!  They arrive on the Planet by spaceship slipping through a wormhole; taking days, instead of years to go between worlds.

In book one, Ruby and Nolan stumble upon a pretty rock; they keep it for a science experiment because it was warm and had a slight vibration. They decide it is not a rock, but an egg! It starts growing! They know that eggs do not grow back on earth, and when it hatches, they meet a dragon!  He becomes their friend; they name him Donzereli, after their Uncle Dawnzereli back on Earth.  Dawnzella is a friend of the family.

Donzereli invites Ruby, Nolan, Bonnie, and Shamus to his home in the mountains.  Dr. Allen agrees not to tell the parents if he is asked to go along.  They have a blast flying on dragons backs to the Donzereli’s family Keep.

When they learn their parents are coming to take them home for punishment, Donzereli takes them deep-sea fishing, also without parental permission.  They are netted and taken aboard a flying ship and come face to face with “Others,” and find they are humans like themselves.  After a fun-filled time at the Others Keep at the amusement park, they go home again to face punishment.

Ruby, Nolan, Bonnie, Shamus, and Dr. Allen try, but can’t seem to stay out of trouble!

They get home, and three Consortium representatives show up to view the progress of the settlement.  The Weller family must find a way to introduce them to two groups of inhabitants that they are unaware of existing!  They will have to show that making friends will give them a more significant return on their investment than mining the abundant resources by force if necessary!

The representatives go back to Mother Earth without a decision of what will happen.   An alliance is formed; the Dragons can collapse the Wormhole, temporary or permanently to create time to negotiate with Earth.  Our group of explorers will be to stay or leave.

After months of uncertainty about their future, the Weller family needs a vacation.  What could go wrong with a weekend camping at the beach?  Maybe it is what Ruby and Nolan discover exploring while Robin and Ty relax in the shade sleeping with a good book on their chests?

Could our adventurers meet another group of inhabitants from the Sea?  Of course Ruby and Nolan are the first to meet the Merpeople!  Could the members of the Consortium be coming back with the decision of their fate: to go or stay?

X R & N Cover Book 6

Published by Time Traveler of Life

Biography Creating worlds, characters, and wielding power like a madwoman, making my characters happy, sad, angry, and some of them with no redeeming qualities. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes laugh out loud when I am writing a scene, and I have been known to cry when one of my favorites has to die. I am a left-handed Gemini, what do you expect? Reading bedtime stories to my two children until they fell asleep or until they just told me to go away, was fun. Making up wild stories for my grandchild, and creating Halloween costumes from Cowboys to a Dragon, was another favorite thing to do. I missed that so much when they were grown, that I started writing. My yearly newsletters frequently were drafted third-person by my Love Birds, Miranda our motorhome, and by Sir Fit the White Knight, our faithful Honda. Throughout the years, some of my creative talents centered around writing letters of complaint expressing my displeasure with services or products. One crucial, at least to my Son, was a note to our local school bus driver petitioning her to allow him back on the bus. He was kicked off for making an obscene gesture at his buddy. I reminded her that it was not directed at her, and that “obscenity can be in the eye of the beholder,” kids use that gesture as a greeting. He rode the bus until he graduated. I loved driving my English teacher crazy. Leaving a “continued next week” at the end of my five handwritten pages required each week. He was one of many people that suggested I “do something about my writing.” I graduated from the School of Hard Knocks at the top of my class. After 30 years, in the trenches as a Real Estate Professional, I have found that truth is stranger than fiction. My books are filled with characters I met in that profession. Their names were changed to protect the guilty. Others were from people we met traveling around the country in Miranda, our Motorhome. I am married nearly 60 years to the love of my life, Shirl, and partner-produced two exceptionally talented children, and one grandchild who is our pride and joy.
