Book birth day

…climbing big-leaf maples, eating wild blackberries, exploring tide pools and sandstone caves, and discovering ancient petroglyphs are only some of the things you can read about in my new picture book, Island in the Salish Sea illustrated by artist,Leslie Redhead and published by Orca Book Publishers.

I have loved the islands in the Salish Sea since discovering them oh so many years ago. This is a place like no other. It holds my heart. I am so fortunate to have raised my children here, to have lived and grown and learned so much on these shores and on these waters. It is the home of ancient peoples, of eagles, whales and salmon, of sitka spruce, cedars and salal. Welcome to this special place. Welcome to my home.
