ABOUT FORMING TERRA:
The human Diaspora has resulted in the race spreading through parts of a vast galaxy. But humanity has unfinished business back home on the Mother Planet. Terra is devastated as a result of the 21st century Climate Collapse. If humanity is to achieve racial maturity, it must accept the responsibility of making Terra habitable once again. How do you terraform Terra? That’s the task handed to the formidable Raven George and the overachievers she tends to attract. She finds help from an unexpected source as humans finally recognize cetaceans as their equals. It’s a whale of a tale!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: CHRISTOPHER KEY
Christopher Key was born in San Francisco, Terra, and currently lives in North Vancouver, Cascadia, with his wife, the oft-mentioned Reiko. Like many writers, he has had more day jobs than he can recall, but the mainstay was always journalism and that may have impacted the format of the book.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: TRISH HARDING
Trish Harding was born in Washington State and grew up on Lummi Island literally feet from the water’s edge with a magnificent view of Mt Baker at the same time. Her formal art training includes WWU, and The Academy of Art College, San Francisco. Trish is owner of Studio UFO in Bellingham, and teaches at Whatcom Community College, Creative Arts Community, and the Jansen Art Center among others. Her work is built with juicy paint washes, smart color choices, and a respect for the fluidity of the medium.
