About Author Leanne Jones and The "Forever Battery" Invention
Author LEANNE JONES is a private investigator living in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. During a recent summer vacation to the beautiful country of Croatia, she was inspired by the many famous inventors who came from that small country. A story idea began to form.
As a schoolteacher prior to being a P.I., Leanne noticed children could be encouraged toward one of the highest forms of intellectual expression which is invention. She also observed that while children find friends through play, playfulness also strengthens creativity.
Europe was on the forefront of the search for clean energy solutions and once back in Canada, Leanne became aware that local innovations were rapidly moving in the same direction. BC-based Harbour Air had just become the first airline in the world to successfully test a commercial all-electric float plane. This contributed to her idea for this story about a battery that could never die. If fantasy could become fact, it would make electric vehicles safer and more efficient. This book aims to inspire young inventors everywhere.

It's Cool To Be Clever: The story of Edson C. Hendricks, the genius who invented the design for the Internet
IT'S COOL TO BE CLEVER tells the true story of an inquisitive boy in the 1950s who doesn't fit in at school. Edson Hendricks is bullied because he is so smart (people accuse him of getting answers from his father who is the principal) and has red hair. He finds comfort in an imaginary world where he has machine parts, and no internal organs or emotions.
Years later, Edson's strange capacity to think like a machine helps him create a new way for computers to communicate. His "connectionless" network design paves the way for today's Internet.
