Inspiration is a huge motivator! When my fossil collection was donated to me, inspiration took over! I wanted to find out everything I could about these creatures who left their remains for us to explore. The very skills I learned in school allowed me to do just that. I read, wrote, searched, drew and learned much about the world they came from which changed my perspective forever. I can’t think of a better message for kids!
“Under the Sea Time Forgot” coming out 2018 geared toward upper middle-grades. Through the story plot and dialogues, the Paleozoic time period comes alive. The likable, laughable, brave main characters survive a lifetime of explorations and sometimes life threatening undersea encounters by sticking together.
