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

World Sea Turtle Day 2016 – Where the Babies Go

sea-turtle-1229714_640adj

Sea turtle conservation continues to make progress, but most species are still in deep trouble around the world. Understanding the turtles’ entire life cycle is critical to moving these species away from extinction. Until recently, we had little to no data on where the babies went after hatching.

New technology and dedicated scientists have now cracked the case. In celebration of World Sea Turtle Day, I recommend this illuminating video produced by Changing Seas. Babies found!
