Author Valerie Welsh
Author Valerie Welsh was born in Madrid, Spain, to a U.S. Air Force dad and a French mother. Most of her youth was spent overseas. She was a daydreamer, doodler, and painfully shy. She did not do well in school as she has always been a visual learner and creative. Valerie found her school life stifling but managed to graduate and even spent a couple of years in college, which she hated with a passion. Finally deciding, since she was paying for everything, her parents didn’t get a say, she dropped out of college and went to work for the government.
More About Author Valerie Welsh
Three years later, she met the love of her life (who was in the Air Force at the time) and got married. They had their first child nine months after the wedding, followed by two miscarriages then a second child. After Suffering a third miscarriage, she decided two children were all they were going to have.
Valerie got into showing Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs in AKC, UKC, herding, and obedience. She spent 16 years in the show ring and breeding Corgis. It was a love/hate relationship. She hated the politics of the show ring and the cutthroat, backstabbing, win at any cost behavior of contestants. She loved the dogs and puppies. She is stubborn and has trouble knowing when to quit, hence lasting 16 years.
When her last Corgi died, Valerie got two Standard poodles (a brother and sister) and 4 years later a rescue Maltese who had spent the first six years of her life living in a wire cage in a barn on a farm putting out puppies.
Valerie has been very into crafts; quilting, crochet and bead weaving, and she is an avid reader of Science Fiction and Mysteries.
Valerie Welsh has published three books:
- Creator’s Children: The Rise of Astwihad
- Creator’s Children: Allies And Enemies
- Creator’s Children: Battle Lines Drawn
All Author Valerie Welsh novels are found on Amazon as E-books or softcover.
For the first published book by Valerie Welsh this was a fantastic read. Well written, a very enjoyable science fiction story, and strong believable characters make this book a very strong first book. This book is a great sci-fi story, with love, thrills, and a dark, truly evil villain. Most certainly worth the pickup and read through!
This book is a wonderful, fast paced first novel from Ms. Welsh. The characters develop quickly and thoroughly and are easy to like (or not as the case may be). You feel what the characters feel and the descriptions are very vivid. I totally enjoyed this book and look forward to book two.
I just recently started reading sci-fi books again. I found this one fascinating and visually stimulating. A good story line with elements blending Earth inhabitants, advanced civilizations in our and other galaxies, a central guardian of the Milky Way, an acknowledgement of a central Creator, and the usual bad guy bent on destroying the Earth and other planets, etc. Even though a minor one, the only negative I can think of is the rather weak ending. It did, however, serve the purpose of wanting to read what I assume will be or is a follow-on book. Sort of like the old-time movie serials that left one hanging and anxious to see the next one.
