About The Tree

Sean Treacy (Stellar) took the photograph of the majestic tree that appears on my home page.  I walk by that tree every day with our dog, Sid.  Sean is a neighbor and he’s very kindly allowed me to use this photograph.  (Thanks, Sean!) 

Sean captured this image about 3 years ago, when he was 11 years old.  He has a tremendous amount of talent and, among many other remarkable accomplishments, he’s been posting video logs and short films for a number of years.  I think he’s an incredibly talented person so please look out for him-aka Stellar.

His lasted work is called Generation Z https://youtu.be/3VIKtlZ5sIY  Take a look.


My Guys

There are 2 men I’m very proud of.  One of them is my son, Owen. 

Here’s Owen – Cloud busting.



It’s All New to Me!

As a neophyte to managing a web page I’ve made some incredibly basic mistakes, and expect to make many more.   Suffice it to say that this is not my milieu!  But I’d like to say that I’m truly humbled to have been given the chance to write a book in one of my late mother’s universes, and equally  amazed that it’s now published.  All through the process of writing about Piemur and his latest adventure on Pern I never actually thought I’d get to the stage where my book would be in print.  It was, quite simply, something I could not actually visualize.  Guess I need to work on that, too.
