Brenda Cooper / The Creative Fire / Evita In Space

Brenda Cooper wrote with intent
The story of Evita Peron
Told on a generations ship
Late in a very long voyage

The Creative Fire
Book one of Ruby's Song
Kindling lit brightly
The reader drawn to the flame

Ruby, a strong and driven protagonist
Unwilling to bend to the will of her oppressors
Drawing others into the fight
Finding others who have been fighting

It can't be a normal battle
The ship must be maintained
The deep dark is a killer
You must protect the ship

The characters are fully fleshed
Complex and conflicted
Sure and unsure of themselves
Suffering the Human Condition

Readers will delight
The book is a Nebula Award finalist

Music to consider
Banga by Patti Smith
