From the Author

I write books for young children that have the future of our planet at their heart. I passionately believe that children are our last chance to improve our ecosystems, find solutions to major climate problems, and save the planet.

I also believe in the importance of reading to children from an early age, and hope that my books engage children (and parents!) and inspire them to believe in a better future.

Benefits of Environmental Education

According to United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), there are four reasons to provide children with environmental education:

  • To make them more aware and conscious of environmental problems.
  • To boost their interest in caring for and improving the environment.
  • To enhance their ability to learn about their surroundings.
  • To broaden their ecological knowledge in subjects such as landscapes, air, water, natural resources and wildlife.

Letters from the Ledge

Every night he comes to the ledge.
So far, he hasn’t jumped.

Sarah watches him from her window, unable to look away.

Will tonight will be the night that his body hurtles through space and crashes to the ground in a failed attempt to fly?

Standing between heaven and hell, life and death, eighteen-year-old Brendan massages the ledge, arms outstretched, contemplating suicide.

Cutting isn’t cutting it. Drugs can’t numb the pain.
His best friend is dead, and his wealthy parents are nothing like the polished image they show the rest of the world. Between his father’s abuse and his mother’s alcoholic neglect, their Manhattan penthouse feels more like a prison.

Paige and Nate watch from their fire escape, teetering on their own edge after a brutal rape has nearly shattered their relationship. Watching is one thing, but how they can stand by, knowing what they know and doing nothing about it?

This hauntingly beautiful coming of age tale will make you laugh, cry, rage and cheer as we realize we are all human, all fallible, and all prone to believe the lies we tell ourselves.
