)-- Artist, writer and award-winning actress Carmen Gloria launches her debut children’s picture book “Thank You Mercury!” with Uncommon Grammar, inspired by her love of space.
Her goal is to write something for young children that can help them learn and remember the planets in our solar system, while also reading a fun story about friendship and gratitude. She hopes to inspire kids to want to learn more about astronomy with her series. To make the book easily accessible, she is giving away the free ebook of "Thank You Mercury!" via Amazon this coming weekend, in honor of Astronomy Day and International Children’s Day.

She also won Best Supporting Actress by the Valley Theatre League Artistic Director Achievement (ADA) Awards for the play “Soldiers Don’t Cry” by playwright/director Layon Gray, in 2003. Most recently she has recurred as Sofia in TV series “Det Kunne Vært Verre” in Norway.
