meet a character in my book!

I haven’t posted in a very long time, but I have been busy. Last November, I decided to take my writing in a new direction. Since then, I have published three books, in a science fiction adventure/romance set on the planet Meniscus, far from Earth.

~

My main character in these books is a young woman named Odymn. She is 28 years old and was brought to the planet Meniscus as a slave. Although she has endured hardships, she has strength and endurance and she has escaped to freedom, to live in the wilderness of Meniscus.

Physically, she is very different from me.

I have arthritis in my knees and have difficulty walking …

Odymn is athletic, an expert at the art of parkour. Parkour is a way of moving through the landscape in a series of runs, jumps and climbs. Parkour promotes strength, flexibility and endurance.


~

In knowledge, she is a bit like me.

I am a botanist and know the names of many of our local plants. I also know a lot about the edibility and toxicity of plants …

She has learned, by listening and asking questions, the names and characteristics of many of the plants on this alien planet. She has also learned, partly by trial and error, the best plants to eat and those to avoid because of toxins.

If you’d like to learn more about my parkour-loving heroine, the books in the series are available on Amazon here.

Meniscus: One Point Five is available free at WattPad here.

All my best,

Alexandra
