Marcha Fox’s passion for science fiction began as a child. Her determination to write in that genre knew no bounds, such that she even went back to college in her 30s to obtain a bachelor’s of science degree in physics, after which she spent over 20 years working at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Science and engineering experience notwithstanding, it’s the unexplained mysteries of the cosmos, such as the concept of a universal consciousness, which provide the setting for Beyond the Hidden Sky, first volume of a four-part series. Centered on the Brightstar family who has been torn apart by a storm of political and scientific intrigue, they will stop at nothing until they are reunited.
I saw a meme today that implied the Mayan who said the world would end in 2012 was dyslexic and really meant 2021.
How have you made it through the past year and a half? Certainly 2020 and 2021 have been epic as far as life's challenges are concerned. Have you been recording any of it in your Family History? This has been a target-rich environment for such stories, just like the early pioneers, people who survived the Great Depression, Dust Bowl, Civil War, etc. Remember that crisis + time = humor. And if there was nothing funny about it whatsoever, then what inspiration might future generations derive from it? If you need ideas, this book is for you!
The Family History Fun Factor
It goes without saying that inspirational experiences belong in a family history. There is nothing more meaningful to future generations than hearing of the struggles of the ones who went before. That orange crate furniture you had to use to get through college, the clunker you drove, shopping in K-Mart on Christmas Eve when everything was on sale, all become cherished stories. At some point nearly every family will encounter hard times and knowing others survived and better yet, how, can be of great comfort. Is there a certain story or person who changed your life? What did you learn and how did it affect you?
