Would you like to jump in a ship and fly to the future?
For as long as she can remember, Diane Gronas dreamed of a world where amazing inventions made the impossible come true. A place with flying cars, talking robots, castles, fountains, and trails to explore. Growing up with an art professor for a father, taught her to draw and write about a place that existed only in her imagination. The study of illustration and her search for the perfect Cinderella tale bloomed and grew into a coming of age adventure on another planet far in the future. In Starseeker: The Flower of Tamaroon, Annie dreams of dancing at a royal ball but also dreams of finding her missing parents on the mysterious lost planet of Tamaroon. A warm planet with abundant food that would save her people who will soon perish in a returning ice age that will last forever. Annie will learn to make the difference that will save them, but will it be in time.
