Welcome to the blog of Ana Darcy Méndez, the one extraterrestrial alien you would love to meet!
Ana's blog, which is a companion to the Distant Cousin stories, is maintained for Ana by Dr. Al Past. It it you will find background on Ana's native language, Luvit, an extended interview with Ana on her the history and culture of her native planet, Thomo, and photographs, maps, and more to accompany the books.
Just for fun you will find samples of Ana's mostly successful poly-national cooking experiment, exhibits of our arts and crafts that fascinate her, and selections of our poetry and music that appeals to extraterrestrials, Mexican-American proverbs and language games from her family's life, puzzles, ideas on early childhood education, astronomical news, and photos of cats, her favorite earthly animals.
The sections below cover (1) the books, (2) photographs, (3) the maps, (4) Ana's interviews and responses to readers, (5) her recipes, (6) her favorite poems, art, and (7) music. Section (8) deals with the books, reviews, and where to locate them.
