I grew up on Long Island, New York, where I loved to explore the beach and the woods. I co-wrote a book series called Undersea Encounters, published by Scholastic, about ocean animals and ocean habitats.

I have recently created another blog with graphic designer Susan Newman called Frogs Are Green, where we are hoping to increase awareness of the worldwide decline in amphibians. Hope you stop by there too!

  1. Your wonderful blog came up in my google alert for the Harvard Museum of Natural History’s exhibit,
    Sea Creatures in Glass…but love your Off Topic advice for a busy mom….and other great stuff you’re posting. Hope you can visit if you make it to Cambridge sometime.

    • Thanks so much for your comment. I would love to visit the museum–the Sea Creatures in Glass exhibit sounds fascinating. I would also love to see the Arthropods: Creatures that Rule exhibit!
