About the Author

When that job went to computers, she became an art teacher and cadette Girl Scout Leader in the Catskill Mountains of New York, then Massachusetts. Her two lovable busy children and her love of the outdoors inspired the children's books she has written and illustrated over the years. While writing this book, she met Rawson Wood, head of the Loon Foundation, who wrote the forward.
