Something that only a few people know about me is that I attract animals. When at gatherings, cats always find their way to my lap and dogs run to greet me first. This can be a problem because I’ve developed allergies to dogs, cats, and horses in the past few years. I still love them, though, especially dogs.
It’s not only pets that are attracted to me. Once while at the Denver Zoo a young giraffe in a circular pen followed me as I wandered around looking at the other animals in his vicinity – with his purple tongue hanging out the entire time. He couldn’t take his eyes off me. At a smaller zoo where they allowed the peacocks to roam the grounds a large peacock followed me throughout the zoo, and every time I turned to look at him, he’d fan his tail feathers. 
As a child, I once thought I was lost in the woods and was crying for my dad, who knew exactly where I was the entire time. But as I cried, a whitetail doe and her fawn approached me, probably intrigued by the awful sound I was making. They paused to look at me for a moment and it calmed my unease. Then, rather than fleeing into the safety of the trees as deer usually do when they sense humans, they walked casually away from me.
There was another time when a wild animal approached me, and that was when I was squatting down to talk to a friend through a car window, and a rabbit approached me and sniffed my pants before coolly pouncing away. 
I’ve been only feet away from curious coyotes in the wild, too, which doesn’t seem as magical as the other experiences I’ve had with animals.

Daeios: 140 Feet Down 
by Colleen Eccles Penor 
Genre: Dystopian Thriller

They believed Daeios would be a safe haven.

They were wrong.

Fleeing apocalyptic weather, a young survivalist woman and her family seek safety deep underground. But a new danger awaits them.

When the leaders of the shelter announce their plans to repopulate the earth using all fertile females, Shea knows she will be forced to become a breeder. Horrified at her impending fate, Shea must make the gut-wrenching decision whether to breed with an elderly, sadistic man and bear his child, or to fight the breeding, knowing that defiance will endanger her life and that of those she loves most.

A dystopian thriller with overtones of The Handmaid’s Tale, Shea’s chilling story will appeal to readers with an interest in family and survival.

Contains mature situations and language. 

Colleen Eccles Penor wrote and illustrated her first children’s book, The Rubber Ducky, when she was seven, and sold it for 25 cents, keeping 100% of her royalties. She's a United States Army veteran who served as a military police officer, where she learned survival skills and the use of multiple weapons, skills needed by the characters in DAEIOS: 140 FEET DOWN. This is her debut novel.
