The octopus is an amazing underwater creature. I think I would have a heart attack if I was diving and saw one. Their eyes are very close to the human eye in evolution. Per trusty and all knowing Wikipedia, the eight armed creature is part of the cephalopod order, which also includes squids, cuttlefish, and nautiloids. I  will have to look that last one up and get back to you. 

Here's a quote from Wikipedia that I fou...

The otter is represented by two cousins, Brooke and Reggie Otterdaughter, in my book "Y Not," She Meowed.  I have always had a thing for otters from the moment I saw them at the Fort Worth Zoo.  They remind me of me and my sister when we were young and frolicking about. The pair in my book help Captain Skye Good-Night capture the bad gal. They represent that fun, free spirit that otters seem to exude. River otters are my favor...

The mouse is represented by the character in "Y Not," She Meowed by Nina Topomeeks, a very shy and self-doubting person. 

She has her own secrets that plagued her troubled mind. She falls for Poppy Hong who is her opposite. Hong loves animals and her approach to Nina is on the same level that she would approach a scared dog. She is encouraging and gentle in her manner, never threatening. They slowly form a lasting, loving...

Great news! I am in the process of improving my novel from a negative view of men to a more positive and inclusive view.  I hope this will enhance my audience's reading experience.  In this way, I am happy to say I can incorporate transgender people in it.  The basic story line will not change. Eventually, the old book will be replaced by three new books on Kindle. Dividing the book in to three will allow more access, since it...

The deer is my character's actual animal spirit that she finds on her dream quest. The woman is Dr. Jesse Running Creek. A beautiful native Amercian Indian who is as heroic as my main character, Captain Skye Good-Night, her betroth. Her compassion for animals as well for all life makes her invaluable to the crew of  Mariposa Spirit. Like the deer, she is swift in movement, but cautious in thought.

This is a possible representation of my 3-D portal, which only animate objects can travel in vast distances of space, in minutes.  The name, 3-D, may not be the best, but suffice it is to say, it is a gateway from a position in space to another. The police guards on Mariposa Spirit use it to transport evidence to their H-Q, and the robot replacements use it to transport themselves from Earth to the Mariposa Spirit. At thi...

The Owl is represented by Athene Burrows who has many owl like features and habits. She is the love interest for Dr. Honey Comb, one of the twin scientist aboard Mairposa Spirit. The ship's mission is to save flora or fauna in danger, especially from pirates. Athene Burrows' name is the scientific name for the burrowing owl. And, Athene doesn't want to fly. She finds comfort in her library and among books.

Ah, another strange creature from the depths of Earth oceans, the delicate seahorse. Quoted from Wikipedia: "Hippocampus" comes from the Ancient Greek word hippos meaning "horse" and kampos meaning "sea monster". 

My mother must have had an affinity for them for the whole time she lived in our house that I grew up in she had two porcelain, turquoise seahorses hanging over her bath tub. I loved gazing at them from time to t...

The wolf is noble beast. I have two characters, Maria and Lupe Lobas, who represent the Wolf from the pendant of Artemis. I love the character of Lupe. She is scrappy but loyal. She doesn't trust easily. When she does, she will be a sincere, dependable friend as long as you don't cross her. I've read that northern bred dogs like Malamutes, Huskies or Samoyes can trace their lines back to the wolf. I have had a Sammy myself and...

This creature absolutely fascinates me. Could anything be more alien-like than the jellyfish? In some parts of the world, it has actually taken over some seas. They must not have a predator to keep them from over breeding,, I wonder? Or, are they from another world, slowly taking over Earth? I have not mentioned them in my present book, however, they will certainly appear in my next ones, of course, only if I survive their ass...
