I have been writing and telling stories as long as I can recall. My father was a great storyteller and would spin a tale as the sun dropped low in the sky and welcome in the night with the magic of his words. It is only natural for me to do the same for my children, students and now grandchildren. I am thrilled to have followed in the tradition of sharing stories, surrounding children with books and adding two beautiful picture books to the world of children’s literature. My latest book, At First Light is my first title for adults. It is an exquisite coffee table photography and poetry book designed to be enjoyed several pages at a time over that first warm cup of coffee and reread over the years whenever there is a quiet moment to relish. It is my passion for the natural world that keeps the ink, paint and photography flowing.
