Biografía del autor
By day, Melissa is a mild mannered software designer and technical writer. By night, she dons her superhero cape and fights crime. Or writes. Or pretends she can play the piano. Ever since she was a small child, Melissa has remained buried in a good book. She fell in love with Piers Anthony’s world of Xanth, rode on the back of a dragon with Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman’s DragonLance Chronicles, and wielded the One Power in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time. Jules Verne, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, and Neil Gaiman introduced her to Science Fiction. With so many people creating worlds around her, Melissa knew that one day she must join their ranks and write a novel of her own. In 2009, Melissa discovered NaNoWriMo – the National Novel Writing Month. The goal was to write 50,000 words in 30 days. In the month of November, The Dreamwalkers was born. Then scrapped. Then re-written. Then edited. The storyline changed, the characters all received new names, faces, and motivations. A villain became a best friend. New villains were created to take his place. Creation is a glorious thing. It is one thing to read a novel – it is another thing entirely to write one. As words began to appear on the page, Melissa was hooked. Writing became a passion. An obsession. Many nights you can find her curled up in bed with a good book on her left and a word processor on the right. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta with her boyfriend, a room full of guitars, a piano, and a ridiculous green fish.
Descripción del libro
In a small star system in the constellation Cygnus, there is the beautiful island planet of Caprinas. The beings in this system pointed their telescopes in our direction and wondered if there was life out there. The answers came in the form of the Invaders – alien oppressors who brought war and ruin to their world. These are the stories of the Caprinians. Stories of rebellion and war. Stories of hope and love. Stories of Christmas. Originally presented as a Christmas Advent Calendar, this short story anthology takes you on a journey with the Caprinians as they fight back against the Invaders, travel across the stars, and make a new home for themselves as refugees on Earth. Experience a short story each day for twenty-four days and dive deep into the culture, language, trials, and triumphs of the Caprinian people as they work to survive and make a new home for themselves here on Earth.

Evaluaciones del cliente
Maria is extremely professional and timely in her responses and updates. She designed the cover for my book first, and I was so impressed by her work that I asked her to layout the interior as well. I am just as satisfied with her interior layout work as I was with the cover designs. I highly recommend her for any part of the designing process!
