Ransom Noble, what an unusual name, you say. Yes, and it belongs to an unusual young woman, one who doesn't know what her name should be or is. I didn't know what her name was for a few years, only knew her as Sheta, Storm, and a few other different handles.
Let me start at the beginning. For over seven years, I've been a member of Writing.Com, a community of writers and those who want to be writers. As I visited on scroll a couple of years ago, I "met" Sesheta, her user name, a member with multiple "handles."
4RV Publishing held a contest, the winning manuscript for a children's or young adult book would be published. Lo and behold, a young woman from Writing.Com won the competition, and I got to learn her legal name. However, she chose a plume de nom: Ransom Noble.
Finally, the new mother (yes, she has a new baby girl) has a new book. The baby arrived first by a few days. The Art of Science weaves together a young girl's desire to keep art in her life and her mother's insistence that academic subjects be first. A mixture of music, art, teen challenges, and science is the result.
I'm honored to begin the blog tour for Ransom and The Art of Science. May I introduce Ransom Noble, one of the new and exciting authors from 4RV Publishing.
Beginning May 20, learn more about The Art of Science, a 4RV book with illustrations by Stephen Macquignon. The blog tour will introduce the book and probably give a bit more about the author.
