Welcome to my website…

Hello,
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 glowing ocean animals put on a bigger and better show.¬† I certainly never dreamed that¬† I’d be lucky enough to write about so many animals for kids around the world who love animals as much as I do.

This is an exciting time for me including many new books coming out, getting to represent the DEEPEND Consortium’s Outreach/Education Team at the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference (GOMOSES) in Tampa, and being part of an exciting deep-sea research team that shot the footage of the giant squid!
