He fought space pirates in the pirate wars and never needed help from anyone. He earned the highest awards the United Earth Council awarded. Now he vanished on his way back from his second Mars mission with the entire crew and the United Space Core Shuttle ‘Atlantic.’ Her father, Space Marshal Jack Smith, would never highjack a shuttle! It was against everything he believed in. She had to figure it out; he could be hurt or worse.

What Gigi says…..
I am writing now for the last 20 years after surviving cancer and following two years of just waiting to die. After these two years I began to think again and came to my senses as I described myself. I had to do something with myself, and as I thought, show the world that I survived and can go on living. And if I can do it, so can you.Since I couldn’t work at my traditional job any longer, I started to write, remembering the time I was writing short animal stories as a teenager, in German. In the beginning I wasn’t sure in which language I should write. But then I decided to write in English, since my English became better and we live in an English-speaking country. Albert, my husband, taught me how to use a computer and I wrote many short stories. And to show the world what I can do, I entered them in competitions. More often I got very good reports and comments back, which gave me confidence to go on writing and that I am on the right track. One of the short stories was about Talon and Matica. Judges from the competition loved the story and so I thought, I could develop a series about Talon and Matica. And so the TALON series came to life.My motto was and is: “Teaching Children Self-Confidence through Service to Others.” Children today face immense pressure to fit in with their peers. (As I faced in my own life) This pressure is leading to record rates of depression among preteens and teenagers and this to suicide. Parents look for ways to build their children’s self-esteem; however, teens look to their peers and popular culture for acceptance rather than their parents. This puts parents in a challenging situation. Most children of this age group have issues with acceptance and this is explored and resolved in a positive manner within the story line of the Talon series. Matica shows children and teens that they can overcome great obstacles with love, patience and a selfless attitude toward helping others and experience exciting adventure on the way.
What Gigi says about her book…TALON
Matica is a strong, brave girl, who battles with her handicap and how others view her. But this isn’t a story only about her gaining acceptance or over coming her challenges. Rather, it’s a tale packed full of exciting moments and tons of emotions. Matica comes across naturally as does the village and world around her. It’s beautifully set and an easy landscape to dive into.
Each situation is fun to read and it made one anxious to see what’s next. Acceptance was eloquently woven into the story without being blatant.
When certain things happen, you don’t always know why and just maybe something good will come of it.
Her disability is her greatest strength.
I was writing these Talon books, because:
I wanted to let children and parents know, that they don’t need to suffer more than they already do. So:
Children suffer from all sorts of afflictions and through my book they can learn how to coup with everything, as Matica did, the main character in my TALON books. She had to learn it in her early life. Children can find a “Condor” as Matica did. Not literally a condor, but every child or adult for that matter, they are battling with none curable afflictions, should find something that let them forget what is happening to them. Finding a “Condor” would help them to overcome that.
Parents can read my book to younger children so they can see that they are not alone, but that they can overcome it in a positive way, not in a negative way.
I say: Children with special needs or with disability, or are handicapped don’t have an illness, so there is no cure and it’s not contagious. They want what we all want, to be accepted.
My books are not only for children. As I said, adults face some illnesses as well, so my books are for adults as well as for children.
‘Sometimes the worst and greatest problems in life cannot be solved. They can only be outgrown.’ And I have been outgrown them. Many times, I might say.
I wanted to write a story about a handicapped or challenged girl to show readers what they can achieve if they put their minds not to the negativity but to the positivity. (As Matica had to learn it as well, and I have done nearly my whole life myself. Being rejected in school as well, I was always an outsider, keeping to myself in the shell of a turtle, had hardly any friends.) And since I love birds, I decided to let her have a bird. But then came, what bird? And then the idea went even further. What is if she could fly on the bird? That would be something. But to do that, she has to have a disability to be very small. But again, the bird has to be big as well. And there the condor came to my mind. I loved the condors before. Amazing birds. They are the biggest land birds (vulture) on our wonderful earth. And so the story about Matica and Talon came to existence. And then I had to set the scene in Peru close to the great Andes where the condors live. And so it came, that I decided to let her family go to Peru as missionary from Australia.
