ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Enthralled with all manner of Rock music, animation and superhero comic books since age four, writer Daria Héléne Brooks studied Creative Writing and Comparative Literature at California State University Long Beach while pursuing a degree in Electronic Media. Having developed a great interest in Atlantis-related subjects, Ms. Brooks first wrote of the aquatic denizens of Nereidia in comic book form in 1993. She supplied research notes for TechTV's 'Pop-Up Video' version of the Gerry and Sylvia Anderson series "Thunderbirds"™, as well as licensed her 'autobiographies' of the Tracy brothers to A&E Home Video for the DVD "The Best Of Thunderbirds." A lifelong Southern California resident who well remembers the Helms Bakery, milk delivery by the many local dairies and the dwindling vernacular architecture of the area, the author lives in Los Angeles, never far from her beloved Pacific Ocean. Ms. Brooks is a member of the Society Of Children's Book Writers And Illustrators and has been a sustaining member of Comic-Con International for over thirty years.
