I am a writer, a biologist, and a photographer. Over the past few years, I've wrangled rattlesnakes, learned from lizards, and anticipated ant aggression. But my main focus has been on writing.
In my non-fiction work, I tell true stories about science, life, and exploration. In my children's books, I focus on communicating moral lessons that deal with growing up and with supporting community and diversity. All of my work is influenced by my experiences with nature and with exploration, whether walking through the desert, paddling across open ocean, searching the rainforest canopy, or delving into the human psyche.
My first book, Joryn Looked Up, tells the story of a young joey kangaroo who discovers he can no longer fit into his mother's pouch. It is a story about change, acceptance, and discovery.
The book I am currently working to fund is Moms, Dads, and Lily Pads, a book about the diversity of modern families, both tamed and wild. Please join me in this quest, by supporting this lovely story about family equality. 100% of all monies I receive will go directly to pay for the art work for Moms, Dads, and Lily Pads. Otherwise, those funds would come out of my pocket, as available (which, in case you weren't sure, would be a much slower process). ;)

Could you skip out on buying one coffee or drink a month to help support this project? All funds from tippers help cover the cost of art for "Moms, Dads, and Lily Pads. Tippers receive a thank you and monthly updates on the creation progress for the book. Tippers that contribute for 6 months or longer will receive a copy of the book when it is completed.
Backer
$20 or more per month
Want to help more? Backers contribute essential funds to "Moms, Dads, and Lily Pads," to help cover the cost of art. They will get in-depth updates once a month on new images and the publishing process as it happens. Backers that donate for two months or longer at this level will also get a copy of the book when it is finished.

Donor funds really help speed up the rate of progress on art for  "Moms, Dads, and Lily Pads." They will get in-depth updates once a month on new images and the publishing process as it happens. Donors will get a signed copy of the book when it is finished, along with a copy of Joryn Looked Up. Donors that contribute for three months or longer at this level will also get a high-quality printed copy of their favorite page, adjusted to a 12x8 size ratio for easy framing.
