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:

  •  Insects like crickets singing slower as evenings get colder
  •  Kettles of hawks overhead, migrating south as food supplies dwindle
  •  Acorns falling from oaks and squirrels hiding them in caches for winter
  •  Spiders weaving bigger webs because they have more hours of darkness to spin them
  •  Black bears bulking up on food so they have enough fat to get through hibernation
