Pseudonym of US author Jeanne Dixon (1936- ), whose four sf novels, all for the early Young Adult market, absorbingly engage their young protagonists in seminal challenges. In Those Who Fall from the Sun (1978) a Disaster-ridden Earth must be fled, during the course of which the young protagonist finds she has prophetic powers, and guides her fellows to a new planet. Time Travel joins two young women from separate planets in Praise All the Moons of Morning (1979), and together avoid fundamentalists on the planet Ix-thlan, and scry a Utopian future. Green Is For Galanx (1980) is partially set on a claustrophobic Space Station now drifting far from Earth; a young teacher, whose pupils are gifted with Telepathy, leads them to an Android-infested world, which they cleanse. And the young protagonist of The Mudhead (1980), captured by Aliens after he has wandered from a human research station on the planet Sigma, begins to learn that he will experience Transcendence and become a seer, joining the two species.
