Good morning and welcome to Sunday Blog Share. This month, we’re focusing on science fiction books. There will be a lot of visitors making an appearance but on Sundays and Tuesdays, this blog will be all about my teen science fiction series—Canoples Investigations!
This series began as an idea in 2001, in the horror filled days after the attacks on September 11. My youngest child was in kindergarten at the time. He came home from school that day, asking why did bad people want to hurt us. I couldn’t answer him for several days, because I didn’t know what to say, but after thinking over the events of that day, an idea formed. Four teens facing trouble in space… BD, Cassie, Carl, and Terry were born. As far as responding to my child about his question, all I told him was that sometimes bad people hurt the rest of the world, but there are always good people to stop them.
BD, Carl, Cassie, Terry, Mick, Jack, Corina, LaTisha, and Kathe dive into another fabulous adventure. The day starts with a girls versus guys SpaceBall game. In another part of the Galaxy, Wade and Mildred are heading home from their honeymoon. Everyone is relaxed and happy with how quiet things have been on the station
An explosion on Sub-1 turns a happy day into one fraught with danger and disaster. Can the team rally and save the station?
This station is so amazing. Even though my friends and I have only been living here for a short time, we’re treated as if we’ve been here forever. No one mentions that we were once part of Believers, for which we are very thankful.
“Sure wish we could be more a part of the team,” Kathe says. “It’s like they brought us here and we have to pretend like we never took care of those Believers on Starship Lyre.”
Kathe, LaTisha, and I have often commented on how the Canoples Investigations team seems to have a lot of adventures without us. Why, just two months ago, when Believers attempted to take over the station, BD, Carl, Cassie, and Terry, along with Jack and Mick, took off to Poseidon to deal with the Believers in charge there. They went nearly to the end of the galaxy, close to Pluto, and had a lot of fun before they came back to save the station.
They also brought me home. And Carl was hurt during the rescue. I wish I could have helped more.
“We’ll be more a part of the team,” LaTisha says with a grin. “As soon as we finish those extra classes we need to learn about important stuff.”
