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:

  •  Forage for wild blackberries, blueberries, and red raspberries
  •  Gray squirrels are having their 2nd litter of kits in late July
  •  July full moon is called a “buck moon”- it’s about the time male deer get their antlers
  •  Piping plovers scurrying on beaches- they’re making a comeback in the northeast
  •  Swallows gathering on utility wires before heading south in late August
