her doctorate in Celtic Artifacts, and now her career is taking off.

Celtic artifacts than she does. He’s been on staff at every one of
her job sites in Scotland, wearing that stupid sexy kilt.

travel, so he didn’t have to keep secrets around her. So why did the

by Romans who caught him scouting their fort. She earns his trust by

Jaleta, is a pleasure to have you in our blog today.Â What did you just finish reading?
I just finished reading a friendâ€™s manuscript, very entertaining story about dogs, twin souls, demons, and past life regression. Iâ€™d recommend it, but I have no idea when it will be published. (more…)
Today we have a treatâ€¦ we interview a new Author in the making. Jaleta Clegg. Her debut book is: Nexus Point, The Fall of the Altairan Empire (http://www.facebook.com/l/fd95c;http//www.nexuspoint.info)
Jaleta tell me something about you.
I’ve been married to the same man for over 24 years. We have eight children. We also have one ancient, toothless cat. I can kill zucchini just by planting it. I love to cook, mostly because I love food and the easiest way to get something really delicious is to make it yourself. Nothing quite satisfies the way serving a loaf of warm, fresh, homemade bread does. I also piece quilts mostly because I love contrasting colors and textures, painting pictures with fabric.
I have the world’s most awesome day job, too. I work at the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center introducing hordes of school children to astronomy, physics, science fiction, and the sheer wonder of science. We’re upgrading to a digital planetarium system this summer. And I get to be the one to figure out how it works and how to program shows. I can’t wait!
Have any book(s) changed your life?
Many books have touched my life. One of the first I remember crying over was “A Wrinkle in Time”. That story spoke to me in a way that no other book had before. Andre Norton’s classic science fiction novels are still among my favorites. I loved the whole idea of traveling to other worlds, meeting aliens, (more…)
