More About the Author

Kathy Altaras is the owner of Aquila Media Productions, a small, Indie publishing company specializing in non-fiction media products. A Navy wife of 33 years, Kathy usually referred to herself as a "camp follower"; nevertheless, she had two teaching careers totalling 22 years, settling in with 12th graders and gifted students. When she retired, she became an education consultant, teaching teachers of the gifted and extremely gifted. Kathy likes exotic and remote travel, counting Mongolia, Central and South America, and Africa among her favorite places. An admitted Darwin groupie, she has recently checked off all the places important to Charles Darwin in his life and travels. This includes visiting his home, Down House, outside London, reading some of his personal papers at Cambridge University where she also studied, visiting 8 of the Galapagos Islands, and, most recently, following some of his footsteps in the Falkland Islands. Kathy likes being at sea in rough water.

Nancy Ann Tappe has often described herself as "an ordinary person with an extraordinary talent." Indeed, she is. Nancy was born with a brain trait of inter-connected sensory information. She sees color around all living objects and tastes shape. This brain characteristic is called synesthesia. Today scientists believe synesthesia to be part of the DNA process because it occurs in families. Scientists are competing against each other in 13 countries to be the first to identify the gene associated with this fascinating process. Nancy has devoted her life and teachings to the study of color, consciousness, awareness, and their applications to the human personality.

Kathy and Nancy have been friends for over 35 years. As writing colleagues, Nancy provides the intellectual theory and anecdotal evidence from among her thousands of clients around the world. It does not necessarily happen easily though. Nancy is an abstract thinker and does not like being bound by a linear or logical structure in her presentation style. According to Kathy, starting a writing project with Nancy is like, "entering a beautiful maze blindfolded but optimistic and muddling through until we emerge with a product that can have meaning for many others."

Indigos: The Quiet Storm represents the culmination of Nancy's theory of color and focuses solely on one color in the patterns Nancy sees. For many readers, just the concept of synesthesia alone requires a curious and accepting mind for someone who thinks and reasons using more sensory input than most of us have. And beyond that, to further push the mind to awareness of and acceptance of the new kinds of thinking and behaving that young people have today requires even more latitude from the reader. Eventually, both Nancy and Kathy believe that the value of this book will be validated by the Indigos themselves, as they lead us into the future.

When Nancy asked Kathy if she wanted to resurrect a small Las Vegas corporation and publishing company, she replied, "Absolutely not!" Three years later, she and Nancy have produced 4 new books, and Kathy has completed a variety of other books and media products for other authors. She says publishing is like swimming through peanut butter. Nevertheless, she selects projects with inherent intrinsic value and interest for her, and she will continue to organize and write Nancy Tappe's information as well as assisting other authors with their publishing needs.

I found that Tappe's conclusions are more than accurate and the book pieces together very well.

I am an indigo born in 1972. I am so thankful to the author for writing this book. I read books on indigos about 15 years ago and didn't get much from those book other than I was eating all the wrong things. This book is so enlightining and validating. I feel like I understand why I am the way I am and a huge burden has been lifted. It also feels good to BE understood. So often I feel like people just don't understand me, not all but most. And now I know why. If you are an indigo or a parent to an indigo, please read this book before you read any of the others.

As a parent of two Indigos and a teacher of many more, this is the book I've been waiting for to inspire and inform me. I have been lucky enough to cross paths with both Kathy and Nancy. If you listen carefully, you can hear Nancy's voice speaking from the heart to all of us in this book. Kathy did an masterful job of taking this valuable information and presenting it a way that all of us can benefit with good grace and light humor. Why should you buy this book? It will open your heart and mind to these beautiful Indigos. It will wake you up to your inner wisdom of how to be in relationship with Indigos. For me, it also reminded me of how to honor the commitment I made to be here for these incredible souls!

Indigos: The Quiet Storm
This book has been a long time in coming, but finally it is here! Congratulations to Nancy and Kathy for creating and writing a book that is in perfect timing, as always. I downloaded it to my Kindle yesterday, and read it through. With all of the misinformation out there about the Indigo life color, it is no wonder this group has grown up misunderstood, overestimated, underestimated and just plain confused. This book is informative, entertaining, but most importantly truthful. I sincerely hope this book helps to put the "myths" surrounding the Indigo life color to bed, once and for all. The truth always reveals itself and it does so eloquently in Nancy and Kathy's newest book; I think their best effort so far! Way to go, ladies.

As a college instructor attempting to unravel the unprecedented behavior of many of my students, I found Nancy Tappe's book Indigos: the Quiet Storm a revelation. Unlike recent approaches which have characterized most young people as narcissists, amoral, anxiety-ridden and technologically-addicted, Tappe provides a more expansive explanation for the actions and attitudes of the emerging generation she calls Indigos whose impact is already manifesting in the Arab Spring, the Obama Presidency, economic globalization and the digital revolution. Of particular interest is her reexamination of autism, ADHD, social networking, and a host of contemporary social expressions that are distinctly Indigo-driven. Basing her findings on decades of study, Tappe does not offer simplistic categorizations for a very complex group of human beings. Instead, her analysis is founded on the natural evolutionary trends of our species set within the context of world events and personal transformation. Using a refreshing objectivity, Tappe translates the new mores we are seeing in relationships, work, education, communication, and culture as a wholly welcome and understandable shift that is not only inevitable, but imperative. This is a book which every parent, employer, teacher, counselor and thoughtful citizen should read attentively.

This book was so clear and easy to understand. I definitely have a better grasp on the psychology of Ms. Tappe's work and Indigos. Thank you for putting out literature that explains these children and how best to work with them.

I keep coming back to re-read and I often check to see what category I fall in. I found that Tappe's conclusions are more than accurate and the book pieces together very well. The book very much takes the newer generation into consideration; it makes so much sense why the youth today acts like so. A+ book.

I was so overwhelmed by this book that I have been unable to comment on it until now. I am so very grateful to Kathy for assembling Nancy Tappe's brilliant teaching into a book for all. The book itself makes me so very hopeful about our future. The reason for the emotional overwhelm, was that Kathy finally set history straight. Nancy was the first to see, discover and articulate the significance of the newly arriving children with the Indigo life color. I was lucky enough to be her student in the 70's. She discussed seeing this new aura color around 4 out of 5 babies being born in the local hospitals. At the time, she saw 12 colors and taught in depth about each color. She did not yet know what this color meant. She only knew that they were the "messengers" and she did not know what their lesson was. I listened each week as she learned more about them. Throughout the years and many public lectures later (she always packed the house), her information made its way into the writings and lectures of others. They benefited from her work, and popularized her theories without giving her credit. She was was never bothered by this. I would call her when I saw her information being used without her permission or credit. She always said she did not mind. I did not attend Nancy's classes after the 80's, so I was amazed to read about the evolution of these big eyed, large eyed babies, that, Nancy said, looked right at you at birth. I did return to a few classes in recent years, and learned that we now have generations of Indigos, and that Nancy had brought through an amazing amount of information in the years I had missed. All of her 12 colors had been replaced by 12 types of Indigos. I am amazed at their evolution and her detailed descriptions of each type.Read more ›
