Say the name Andre Norton to someone who's read her work, and watch the flash in their eyes. There's something about Andre Norton.
She calls herself an old-fashioned storyteller and, indeed, whether it's fantasy, science fiction, adventure, romance or any other genre of popular literature, she manages to capture the audience's attention in the gracious style of the long-gone bardic masters. This quality, acknowledged by both the readers and critics has given her the title of the Grand Dame of Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Andre's friend and confidant "Tree Man" with her gnomes.
It may not surprise you to know that Andre was in love with trees and often spoke to the large live oak behind her library in Tennessee, his name was "Tree Man". I also have a love for trees and often can be found talking to the very old live oak in my back yard. Andre and I also shared a love for Dragons. Pictured below is one of Andre's favorite dragon figurines perched under a sculpture that I did from The Black Forest.
