About the Author
Catherine E. McLean (website: www.CatherineEmclean.com) She writes "Women's Starscape Fiction" because she enjoys a story where characters are like real people facing real dilemmas, and where their journey (their adventure-quest, with or without a romance) is among the stars and solar systems, and where there's always a satisfying ending. Writing as C. E. McLean, she has sold short stories to hard-copy and online anthologies and magazines. Her novels include KARMA AND MAYHEM (a paranormal fantasy romance) and JEWELS OF THE SKY (futuristic-adventure). Catherine is also a writing instructor and workshop speaker (both online and in person) who believes craft liberates and enhances talent. She's an amateur photographer whose favorite subjects are still life (flowers, rocks, and "character" trees).

I thoroughly enjoyed these short stories. All of them. Yes, some more than others, and yes, they were, in some cases, predictable. But they were fun. All of them. Some of them were laugh-out-loud fun, some provoked chuckles, and none brought tears.
Adrada is an Archangel, the Angel of Departing Souls, and he has problems—his wings are tinged with mournful purple. And Zool? Well, Zool, too has problems—he doesn't like human males, and has chosen a human female to show himself to. And that, in turn, gives her problems. Zool is not an Archangel.
But, my favorite story was Just Desserts, in which neither Adrada nor Zool appear, and is probably the shortest of the stories, but it tickled my funny bone mightily.
If you like old fashioned space opera, with a delightful dash of romance; if you like short stories; if you like to smile and laugh out loud, this is the book for you!
