Jaleta Clegg was born some time ago. She's filled the years since with many diverse activities, such as costuming, quilting, cooking, video games, reading, and writing. She's been a fan of classic sci-fi books and campy movies since she can remember. Her collection of bad sci-fi movies is only rivaled by her collection of eclectic CD's (break out the disco accordion polka folk music, please!).
The Fall of the Altairan Empire space opera series starts with Nexus Point. All eleven books are available. Find updates and a complete list of titles at www.altairanempire.com

Jaleta wants to be either Han Solo or Ursula the Sea Witch when she grows up. If she ever does.
She loves teaching kids of all ages about stars, constellations, nuclear fusion, space travel, mythology, writing, and rocks. She volunteers with the Boy Scouts of America among other groups. She was even on her local library board for a while. She believes in teaching people to think for themselves and to be self-sufficient. It's self-serving, though. Kids who know how to do housework, laundry, and cooking give her more time for writing.
She also detests referring to herself in the third person, but sometimes she bows to necessity.
