Life, evolution and the topics of science and religion from a unique, friendly, adventurous and non-religious perspective
A Humanist perspective essentially. Though I like to think of myself as an Atheist first and Humanist next because it seems to be a responsible answer and makes sense as a positive cause that follows from atheism. I can't think of a word for Humanism on Planet Lifandé though, because there are more than one species walking about and talking on modern Lifandé. That's an interesting challenge to the idea of Humanism though, isn't it?
Everything is up for challenge! ... I'm not writing these books to hammer home any firm, set ideas - I'm aiming for the opposite, which is to gently knock on set ideas and open things out to further question within and then away from these stories.
I hope children will explore Lifandé and come away with less firm answers than they had before and many more vibrant questions to confront their place in our own remarkable and real life with.
"Is this real?" was a great question from one of our daughters while reading the first book. I just love that it spurred that kind of wide curiosity in her.
So, L-I-F and E spells "LIFE" - With "L" representing tiny Microbes, with some not all that much changed from how life started out in a small corner of this far away world, while no one was looking. Followed by Fungi straight up represented by "I" and quietly getting on with more than we might imagine. "F" is a branching shape for Plants and "E" with its top, middle and bottom, represents the Animal kingdom on Lifandé.
Exploring things "on Lifandé", means some large doses of poetic license at times and no scientific facts (even from Edna here) should be taken as hard facts that can be held as true back here on Earth. The idea is to explore really big and challenging topics about life in a bold and friendly, very distant environment that encourages us to return to, turn to, approach and explore these ideas for ourselves and make up our own minds based on the facts around us that we can find for ourselves here on Earth.

|These latest two books refer to a poem that I wrote and recorded myself reading some years ago. It is published in full as the conclusion to LIFandE: Explore Rainbow Frogs on Lifandé and hinted at in the last pages of LIFandE: Explore Abortion on Lifandé. Here it is as I put it appears on youtube:
