Why "the Artemis"? Well, as many of you--well-read and well-educated persons that you all are--know, Artemis is the Greek form of Diana. And owing to some unknown burst of inspiration on the part of my mother (I was supposed to be named Theresa Ann, but she changed her mind at the last minute, and my sister ended up as Theresa), I actually was named for the goddess of the moon. And I did have a ship in my third book (VOYAGER) named the Artemis.
Besides, I had to call it something.
I'd been talking to my editor at Ballantine about posting an announcement regarding our new graphic novel project (see post below), and she remarked that she couldn't wait to see what the response was to both the announcement and the artwork.
At this point, it dawned on me that I don't actually have a facility on my website for people to leave comments. Hence this blog.
Mind, I've never done a blog before, but I'll do my best with this one. And I really would be interested to hear what you think--either about the graphic novel, or anything else.
