Book Signing at the AARP Convention 9/23-24/11

Book Signing for A Test of Alien Alliance
My Book Signing Experience

Thiw was an exciting experience.  I had never expected the kind of enthusiasm Author Solutions showed for my work.  It was great talking to all kinds of people about science fiction.  I was especially glad to sign books as gifts for young people.  Anything we can encourage them to read is good!

I was also surprised to see what a diverse group of people was interested in literate science fiction.  A Test of Alien Alliance is the result of my son’s asking me to write him a Star Trek story some years ago.  After messing around with fanzine-type fiction for a while, I decided to make my own universe.  Once I retired, I had the time and wherewithal at least to begin making my dream come true.
Currently, I’m writing a prequel, Befriending Aliens, which should come out next February.  I really love the writing experience.

My World of Aliens and Cats


So who am I?  I recently published A Test of Alien Alliance through Xlibris, using the pen name Norma Druid.  That’s what I use for Science Fiction, since I write non-fiction articles for Examiner.com under my own name, Catherine F. Hill.  I also paint cats like my gravatar.  Usually, I paint on small wooden or paper mache boxes, door hangers, kleenex boxes, and similar items for sale at craft fares.  I would love to find a market to make my cats into greeting cards and calendars!

The portrait below, which appears on the back cover of A Test of Alien Alliance is a very good image of me done in 1999 by my late father, Fulton L. Peay.  This was just two years before he died, and I am proud to display his work in remembrance.  He taught me a lot and encouraged my creativity.
