Welcome to my website…


Thanks for stopping in. I am a nonfiction writer, specializing in animals. I LOVE it, and am very lucky to be a working writer. You might be wondering how I became a nonfiction writer.

When I was a kid I loved watching fireflies blink and light up dark nights with their secret messages. I never dreamed that some day I’d be in a deep sea submersible watching ocean animals flashing and glowing…or that I’d be lucky enough to spend time with penguins, watch a whale being born, release a rescued and rehabilitated seal, or kayak with sharks.  I certainly never dreamed that  I’d be lucky enough to write about all those animals and experiences! Animals, the ocean, nature, science, and discovering as much as I can about each — that’s what I love. I’m fortunate enough to have a job that lets me discover more every day and share those discoveries with kids.
Fun Announcement: I have THREE books coming out in 2016! Discover how you can protect sharks, read MISSION SHARK RESCUE- available March 2016. Check out Books and Articles to find my most recent books and articles…
