Starseeker combines a Cinderella tale into an original space adventure for young adults and up.

In an amazing future world, Annie and her friends train on a space station for a world saving mission. Her friends include a humorous flying robot named E-Chip who can project himself as a human hologram and a bird named Tipper from the planet of Tamaroon. After meeting a handsome prince, the danger grows as Annie searches for the lost planet that could be the key to finding her parent’s expedition and saving the people of her world before it turns into ice.

“A tale of survival in the future.”

Starseeker: The Flower of Tamaroon by Diane Gronas. – In a distant future, Annie lives alone with her aunt in a high-rise refugee tower as the world around her turns to ice. The Starfire that once warmed the regions of the twelve kingdoms is failing. There is little to do in her cramped quarters and she spends far more time with star charts and flight simulation than what is required for any shuttle pilot. Uncle Jordan has become her mentor and tutors the prince of Treya soon to be crowned at a royal ball. Annie dreams of dancing at the ball but her deepest desire is to join the desperate flights of Starseekers searching the stars for food and survival. Launching into space is her only hope of ever finding her parents missing on the lost planet of Tamaroon. A triumphant tale of a dream that blooms into action.

“Young readers are sure to enjoy the fascinating and imaginative world of Treya, where teens fly Starseeker ships with futuristic gadgets and lead missions into space.” — Dayne Sislen, illustrator of “Madeline Delilah,


Eyes of Heaven

Lyrical verse inspired by visits with those once and still dear.

Diane Groans FEB 2018 – First edit


Build misty paths and stairways through columns of heavenly light,

upon marble steps supported by mountains of cloudy white.


To see the glories of God’s heaven we need eyes that open our soul.

All that is truly beautiful waits for us to unfold.


Raise castle halls among wood and garden, birds and friendly beasts,

with men and ladies wonderfully fair and children who run about.

find men, ladies, and children there that you’ve known for eternity.


Their greetings and laughter rise in song with flowers that never fade,

among gardens and trees, and babbling streams spraying mist of tingling delight.


A rainbow of fish and trout, creatures real and imagined

wait to be found and greet you in the friendly morning light.


Chicks hatch and grow out of time, sprout wings and sing their song.

Baby beasts rise on wobbly legs, and strongly leap to romp and roam

over meadows and through glowing mist where feathered messengers abound.


Petals fall through twinkling light in a whispered kiss upon your cheek.

from finger-lights of love that warmly hug your soul with light.


Sparks of joy from glowing hearts call those held dear to sights of joy,

to vanquish fear and loneliness and lead to calm repose.


All dance with loved ones found in life to music from the stars,

among the mist of cloudy bliss that spawns all created beings.

What joy there is to be found if we but choose to see
