Thank you Authors Lounge for the opportunity to share my book with your audience.
The story is about a nine year old girl named Evelyn who loves to go outside before bed to see the Milky Way and the constellations, and dream about the planets. But Evelyn has a secret: She is able to see flashes of light streaking across the night sky that no one else can see. And she’ll soon learn that her secret is actually a wonderful gift.
I was inspired to write this children’s book by my granddaughter. Her fascination with the night sky and its celestial bodies was both infectious and provocative. This story was written not only as a labor of love, but also in response to the opportunity to celebrate the sense of wonder and awareness of young children. I hope that you, your readers, and children you love enjoy the book. The target audience is ages 6-9 but people of all ages are enjoying it. My hope is that everyone reading the story will recognize and reconnect with their own power of imagination and use it to accomplish goals and realize their own dreams. However, other life lessons are incorporated into the story to give it enhanced value as a learning experience, as well as an entertaining read.
