Dear Reader/Dreamer/Animal Lover/Any Other Human/Monster Inspired to Visit My Page,
Thank you for visiting my website!
Wildlife and nature have always played an enormous role in my life. I grew up in the Land of Enchantment (not Disney World, but New Mexico), where I was surrounded by a landscape glorious enough to capture the attention of Georgia O’Keeffe. I then moved to the east coast, where I fell in love with the study of ornithology and received a degree in environmental education. This paired quite nicely with my love of writing, and thus my journey into conservation-focused stories began.
My books aim to promote environmental literacy and connect kids with wildlife halfway around the world. I especially love writing about issues and species that no one really knows about (what on earth is a saola, vaquita or pangolin?). In a world filled with such amazing biodiversity, there are plenty of stories to tell!
In addition to mainstream stories, I love to create customized picture books for friends and family. I find this to be both challenging and incredibly rewarding. My first story was for a couple expecting their first child, and knowing how wonderful these two people are, the story wrote itself.
When I’m not writing or admiring the work of fellow kidlit authors and illustrators, you can find me kayaking, hiking, bird watching or cuddling my two crazy cats (really, they are insane but I love them anyway). For more information or to inquire about customized stories, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and enjoy the tales!
