Hello Rocket family, students, and visitors,
I received a Masters in Library Science from the University of South Carolina and a Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Winthrop University, in Rock Hill. I have always loved reading and have read and loved books voraciously since I first entered school. Before I became a librarian, I worked in book retail and within library special collections (rare book archives). My favorite genres to read are Mystery and Science Fiction.

Late one winter night a little girl and her father go owling. The trees stand still as statues and the world is silent as a dream. Whoo-whoo-whoo, the father calls to the mysterious nighttime bird.
But there is no answer.
Wordlessly the two companions walk along, for when you go owling you don't need words. You don't need anything but hope. Sometimes there isn't an owl, but sometimes there is.
Thelma dreams of being a glamorous unicorn. Then in a rare pink and glitter-filled moment of fate, Thelma's wish comes true.
She rises to instant international stardom, but at an unexpected cost. After a while, Thelma realizes that she was happier as her ordinary, sparkle-free self. So she ditches her horn, scrubs off her sparkles, and returns home, where her best friend is waiting for her with a hug.
