HI. I’m Cecilia Pauline Thornton. I’m a retired Special Education teacher, living in California. I’m also a writer, a poet mainly, but am mid-way through my first novel for tweens, teens and young adults. It’s a military science fiction with paranormal elements, written along the lines of Steampunk. So ,my blogs will always reflect something of the science behind the fiction that I’m creating. I’ve also a selection of 15 essays on works of literature (Shakespeare,etc.), have started a play, and have volumes of humourous cynicism that I’m still wondering what to do with. My main interest right now though is the novel that I’m working on. And creating an interesting blog.
