More About the Author
Ever since I was a child I've loved nature and animals. I spent my time out of doors, picking flowers and scooping tadpoles out of ponds. So it's no wonder I studied biology and became an author myself of the kind of gifts I loved when I was young, books about nature. I've expanded into other fascinating areas of nonfiction, too, especially historical topics of the American west, such as Lewis and Clark and Native Americans.
The lives of wolves and dogs especially fascinate me. Scientists consider them the same species, but wolves are so successful at being wild, and dogs have done a great job of attaching themselves to humans in so many ways. My one fiction, "Return of the Wolf," now available in a Kindle edition, shows how wolves live in the wild. If you read this book, you'll recognize behavior your dog shares with its wild cousin, such as submissive or dominant behavior. "When the Wolves Return: Restoring Nature's Balance in Yellowstone" demonstrates the importance of wolves to the natural ecosystem, and several of my books explore how dogs help humans in different ways.
My work has given me the gift of travel to all sorts of fascinating places such as the Galapagos Island, the Costa Rican Rain Forest, the arctic tundra, and more. Since my favorite activity is learning new information, I plan to keep traveling and writing for many years ahead.
