Cow's Milk

Tales of Lamac, Book 1 -- Anara Arrives

Tales of Lamac, Book 2 -- Birth of Takaira

The inspiration for “Cow’s Milk” came around the kitchen table, years ago, when our children were younger.  It went something like this:
I was introducing a new dish to our regular dinner fare.  The kids looked at me appalled.  “Who wants to try that!”  Josh said in disgust.
“Well,” I said, stalling for time while I tried to think up an answer to that comment.  “Someone had to be the first to try the unusual, otherwise our diet would be pretty bland.”  They looked at me, not quite sure what to think, but said nothing.  I looked at the table for something familiar to use as an example.  “Take milk for instance.  What do you suppose the first kids to drink cow’s milk thought when they found out where it came from?”
In response to many questions and inquiries that I’ve received from reader’s wanting to know more of Lamac and its people before the Soaring Free Trilogy, I set about to answer some of their questions in a short story.  I assumed I would write it for the adult population, as I’d written the Soaring Free Trilogy, but when I began to put down the words, it became evident to me that this would be a children’s tale.  It was also clear to me that it was only the beginning of many tales to come.
If you’ve read the Soaring Free Trilogy, you will find some answers here, and maybe a few more questions.  But for many of you, this will be your first taste of Lamac.  These are tales you can share with your children.  So, sit back, relax and enjoy...
It is only the beginning!
Discover Flittaf, the birthplace of Takaira and many wondrous and unique creatures.  Journey back to a time before Takaira left her home world.  Learn what caused Takaira to leave everything she knew and seek out the unknown…

Nunkey, the draget, is pleased to announce the birth of his sister Reekey —smaller even than the small Nunkey.  Share this newest adventure with them.

In the Tales of Lamac series, the world of Lamac from The Soaring Free Trilogy is told from the beginning, though the lives of the children of Lamac, their families and their creature companions.  Some of those who would later appear in The Soaring Free Trilogy, as capable adults are first introduced as young children confronting their lives and the challenges of growing up and making the right choices.  These stories grew out the desire to fill in some of the missing background of Lamac and her people.

Cow’s Milk is a light-hearted book with an answer for all those who wondered what ever possessed us to start drinking cow’s milk in the first place.  You may have questioned this yourself, but Nelani has come up with an answer that just might surprise and entertain you at once.

These are just the beginning of Nelani’s writings.  Come back often and check out the new additions as they are added.
