About the Author:
My real name is Carol Ann Higgins Cajigas. I chose the pen name H. H. Laura to honor three amazing women in my life.
The first was my mother, Helen Gellner Higgins. Her deep and enduring love for my father, Alvas, inspired me to write the Nine Moon Saga Series. She loved to have me read the excerpts to her of how she and daddy met at Bloch Bros. Tobacco Company in Wheeling, WV.
The second was my grandmother, Hazel Saffle Gellner, whose love of family and strength of character made me want to know more about my genealogy. Is is her husband's grandfather whose life inspired the character Teater.
The third is my husband's mother Laura Garmendia Cajigas, whose spirit and love brought forth the caring and devoted man I married. I've combined his goodness with her maiden surname to create the character, Juan Garmendia, who is the father of my brooding Ryeth.
All three strong and highly capable women have made their final journey and are gone from this earth. I honor them with my love, and hope to someday become worthy of their inspiration.
