Nancy Lorraine brings her knowledge of children's developmental issues to her stories. She has a Ph.D. in Social Work and has counseled families and children in crisis for over 32 years. After retiring, Nancy Lorraine rediscovered the transformative power of nature and renewed her dedication to its conservation. Using her knowledge as a master gardener, Nancy Lorraine worked to certify her coastal town as a wildlife habitat by the National Wildlife Federation and helped to establish a Habitat nature park for her community. Nancy currently spends her spare time writing and tending to her backyard garden, a tranquil refuge frequented by butterflies and grandchildren. Dorothy Herron painted the beautiful watercolor illustrations for The Butterfly Adventure. She incorporates her love of nature in all her art. The watercolors in the book are available as art prints.
Inspired by her own granddaughter, Ava Lorraine, and her garden explorations, author Nancy Lorraine's love of nature spills out from every page. Read morePublished on June 25, 2013 by Mary Anne Benedetto
