J.K. Accinni was born and raised in Sussex County N.J. before moving to Sarasota Florida, where she lives with her four dogs, all rescued. Mrs. Accinni's passion for wildlife conservation has led her all over the world, including three trips to Africa, where ten years ago she fell in love with a baby elephant named Wendi, that had been rescued by a wildlife group. That baby is the inspiration for the character Tobi, the elephant featured in her fourth book titled Hive.
The character of Caesar is inspired by a real life iconic tiger from Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary in Sarasota.
Mrs. Accinni also invites you to visit her blog at www.speciesintervention.com. Readers are encouraged to comment about the book or your own creature experiences.
