Why aliens as the focus of your world?

I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of life on other planets and because astronomers are almost certain it’s out there, I began wondering what they would make of us earthlings. This is what spurred the idea behind “Understanding the Stars”, and poor Alexandra is the guinea pig the aliens choose to observe for their research. Aliens are a great topic for a book because they’re so full of possibility—they can be anything you want them to be, and the big appeal is the possibility that it might actually all be real.

Xela is a working mother of three, living in the Utah. She teaches secondary English and after talking to students for years about following their dreams and doing whatever it takes to achieve them, she decided to take her own advice and complete her lifelong goal of writing a novel. The idea of life on other planets has always fascinated her, and she wondered what they would think of humanity, which is what spawned the idea for the plot of “Understanding the Stars”. When she’s not playing with her kids, or sorting through the endless laundry, you’ll find her watching The Walking Dead, horseback riding, or working on her next book.

  1. I feel like aliens can be a hit or miss for so many people. It really depends on how they’re written. I guess there’s something about this ability to make them “believable” that comes into play.

  2. What a lovely post! This book sounds like something I’d like – I definitely think that SOMETHING is out there in the universe! It can’t be just us, right?! 😀

    And I didn’t even notice your blog had a new design! I am a huge fan of the blog header! The colors look really nice together and that little typewriter is so cute! 😀

  3. I also love imagining what aliens might look and act life. Are they terrible intergalactic parasites like most current movies portray them to be? Or are they lovable (and sometimes cuddly) like ET and Alf? Are they compassionate? Creative? I like to think so. Thanks for the post! I wish Understanding the Stars good fortune.
