Lyhyt elämäkerta
Alma Alexander was born on the banks of an ancient river in Yugoslavia, a country which no longer exists. One of her novels, “The Secrets of Jin-shei,” has been published in more than 20 countries and 14 languages. The heroine of her popular Young Adult Worldweavers series is as American as Harry Potter is British.

She is married to a man who wooed her over the Internet and lured her to America.

She likes books, embroidery, music ranging from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" to Dvorak's New World Symphony and "La Traviata", animals, coffee, chocolate, snow, velvet -- and, in people, loyalty, kindness and intelligence (and an off-the-wall sense of humor helps).

She is a punaholic, a chronic worrier, sometimes honest to the point of being tactless. She is sentimental and has an incredible memory for detailed trivia like dates and old song lyric.

She was born on the fifth day of July, six years before man walked on the moon, which makes her a cancer according to the Western horoscope and a water rabbit according to the Chinese one.

Alma was a teenage novelist -- 30 years ago. Now she is exposing her first efforts online. When she was 14,
wrote a 200,000 word novel in longhand, in pencil, three years after learning English.

Alma is posting that early novel in a blog online, one chapter at a time, and it is being rewritten with the commentary and suggestions of a panel of teen advisers. "We will continue doing this, chapter by chapter, until the novel is done," she says.

Such an interesting idea absolutely squandered to the point that it made me angry. This is not about six astronauts. This is about on very obnoxious know it all who goes on long rants to the point where you lose interest. I gave up at chapter 9 with 6 hours left in the story. At that point I hated the main character and could not tell any of the astronauts apart because so little focus was on them. I will actively avoid this author in the future.

Like with all collection of stories, I liked some and didn't care for others. Towards the end I started enjoying some of the stories more. There were a few really good ones, but the ones at the beginning I didn't like, and they made me not want to continue with the book. Once I got over them, I really breezed through the rest of them. They do a great job of feeling like fairytales. There was something classic about the way they were written.

Thoroughly entertaining read! It goes from easily identifiable re- telling of stories (I kind of liked these new versions of "Disney Princesses" and familiar but not as easily identifiable ones. I was thrilled by the combo Frankenstein/Dorian Gray mash up. And the "twice promised" story was excellent.

I'd even like to read more about Aris.

If you like your fairy tales easy, hard, and ranging from scary to sci fi to fun..this is your book.
