Gaia Mission #1

My hubby (a third-grade teacher) and I have always called Gaia Girls, “Fiction with a Mission.” I’m happy to announce that the “Mission” component is about to begin! This weekend, on my monthly show, Radio Gaia, I will be announcing Gaia Mission #1. From the Gaia Girls Blog: “I am soooo excited to share this 2-month Gaia Mission with you! I cannot give you the details yet, but you are going to LOVE it. This is an “earth” mission (Mission #2 will be a “water” mission!) It will take 2 Full Moons to complete. If you choose to take on this mission, you’ll have a chance to win some pretty cool Gaia-Prizes from our sponsors. ONE person will receive the first ever, Gaia Hero-Earth, Award! This is big! This is huge! I know you care about Gaia and all the creatures we share her with. This is a chance to show the world that kids can make a difference! Listen to Radio Gaia THIS Saturday at 4pm (Eastern Standard Time) As always, the show can be listened to anytime afterward by clicking this link.”

I am elected City Councilman here because I believe in putting your money where your mouth is and I drive VW Beetle that runs on waste veggie-oil. Writing a fictional sereis about girl-eco heroes is extremely fun and I have discovered the profession of writing suits my nature. Half the time I'm squired away from the world and lost in my own daydreams and the other half I get to go into schools, libraries and other interesting venues to talk about my work and, more importantly, about Gaia.
