Hi! I'm Alethea Pappas in Laguna Hills, California. I am retired from Children Services as a medical records admin support. I am a wife and mother of three, and grandmother of six. The stories I write for children have been ones I hope will inspire them to greater dreams and aspirations. The short stories I write geared toward women are of life experiences I've had along with stories of other women I've known. At the moment I am working on a novel 'Marissa' who I hope will challenge us to recognize our own resilience, and ability to love beyond words.
