Athena M. Kaiman is the author of the fantasy series, DAR & Earth, rooted in accurate historical
and scientific facts, with an emphasis on climate change and female empowerment. Ms. Kaiman
worked in the male-dominated world of politics, first as a grassroots organizer and ultimately as
a press secretary and speechwriter. She hopes to inspire the younger generations to lay bare the
blame for their dying world at the feet of the adults who allowed it. She considers herself one of
those who allowed it and writing this series is her way of repaying that debt.
