Maria J. Andrade, author, poet and licensed Child Therapist, is happy and touched that her book for children,"Youngen Finds Her Song," a story about two birds who go on a healing journey, is being used in schools and hospitals across the US & Canada.
We, recently caught up with Ms. Andrade after her new eco/social science-fiction story, "The Return, A Time When Nature Seeks Justice" was published on Amazon.com .
Maria: "Two birds go on a healing adventure together and connect with the power and magic of love within and around them. It brings hope to children about their future and our planet - all of which I deeply believe in."
Maria: "Yes. Times are hard but there is still a lot of good in our world and kids especially have not lost their funny bone. The characters in my book talk with each other about important things old age, materialism, the environment, war and peace but they can also see the humor in things and I love it!"
Maria: "That's right. I have met with a wonderful organization, Starlight Foundation,NY and they as well as others who work with ill children are giving it to their young patients."
Maria: "It is online in all major book stores or on my website: www.magicunion.com.There are special rates for educators."
Maria: Sure. Just go to "Birdchat." Isn't it appropriate?"
We publish books and poetry for adults and children on themes of relationship and the sacred in self, other and the natural world.
