Welcome to my website!

I love writing children’s books about nature and the environment. Real life encounters with animals and insects inspire my stories. Even my fiction characters come from furry creatures found in my countryside neighborhood in Buxton, Maine.

So poke around and enjoy your stay.

Be on the lookout for:

  • How many different colors of leaves you can find? Pink? Purple?
  • Watch for Monarch butterflies gathering in trees and at puddles before migration
  • Plink! Plunk! Plop! Listen for acorns dropping from oak trees
  • Beautiful (but invasive) bittersweet berries feed dozens of bird species
  • In late fall, Black Bears enter their dens to sleep through the winter
  • The Orionid meteor shower on Oct 21-22, may produce about 20 meteors per hour
