WRITER’S DIGEST

“Self-Published e-Book Awards”

Excerpt of judge’s comments:

Elizabeth’s Landing grabs the reader right from the start. This story has excellent plotting, writing, and story flow. Really enjoyed it! The cover is beautiful and fully represents the interior story. As a debut novel, this is so well done the book seems written by a seasoned author with many books under the belt. Wow! First person is tough to pull off but this author managed to do just that and make the story very entertaining. Emotional connection for the reader is also excellent. With a fourteen-year-old protagonist, the novel reads exceptionally well for the YA market. The reader is drawn into the struggle to protect the sea turtles and rides the roller coaster when the plot twist hits…(spoiler) The ending is oh so satisfying!”

MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW (California Book Watch, Independent Publishers Shelf; Children’s Bookwatch)  “It’s rare to find an environmental story folded into a young adult read about a teen’s angst and coming of age, but by incorporating the two under one cover, Elizabeth’s Landing becomes so much more than the usual story of a moved teen’s struggle to adjust. Bigger-picture thinking lends a social and political aspect to the story that succeeds in examining issues of a teen’s power, awakening to the world around her, and movement from ‘troublesome’ to ‘engaged.’  This award-winning book is recommended for middle school to high school audiences.” D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer

Happy Earth Day! Let’s Make Every Year a Year of the Pollinators.

Last year on Earth Day I was raising a sign for rational thought and action in the March for Science. This year, I’m spending it on my knees in my garden planting for pollinators. All pollinators: bees, birds, butterflies, moths, flies, bats, beetles – indeed all flying insects face increasing risks each year from habitat loss, pesticides, climate change, and disease. 

Last week’s House of Representative committee amendments to the proposed Farm Bill would seriously weaken the Endangered Species Act, allowing the unrestricted use of pesticides, many proven to harm or kill the species we depend on.

There are many ways to counter pollinator losses. Certainly, politically, but also by making your home, garden, and behaviors pollinator friendly.
