Local Author Spotlight in May presents Odessa Moon

Odessa Moon – White Elephant of Panschin  FIC MOO (Local Author Shelf.)

Odessa Moon has painted, sewed, served in the Navy, worked as a sales clerk, taken care of her family, and gardened with enthusiasm. Her house and garden are a piece of performance art; a meditation on time, change, and entropy. She reads extensively, particularly on subjects like medieval history, the class struggle, colonization, and resource depletion. While growing up, she read plenty of science-fiction and fantasy and wondered what the authors hand-waved away about how difficult it really would be to terraform another planet. She read plenty of romances and wondered where the characters’ relatives were and how they paid the bills. The series The Steppes of Mars is her attempt to combine all those interests.
