I was watching a special on space
on the telly last night with Susan
and it was about the planets
When they got to Saturn
I thought there is a planet
with some style,
it would float like an apple if you
had a pond big enough,
it has 60 moons,
and with its rings
it seems it is the only engaged planet
in the solar system.
Musta been all that mooning going on.
- Tracie Skarbo was motivated to write by her father, who was her biggest supporter. “He was always behind me, rallying me on with my writing. I would always see him with a book in hand. He gave me a great appreciation for the written word, and the power and responsibility that writers have to shape those who read their words. He also taught me to respect nature and to value the beauty within it; my reflections on my environment are just an extension of this.” Skarbo was raised on Vancouver Island and is working on her next two books.
