This event was a lot of fun!
Can’t get the book? Feel free to click below and enjoy a reading of ODIN, DOG HERO OF THE FIRES, followed by some pictures of the real-life animals and people, and even a bonus tour of the farm by Ariel herself!
So excited to share this news!
It was a lot of work but but also fun and educational to write this post for fellow Stormie Lisa Kerr’s blog.

ACK!!! This is my 5th picture book contract—and I am so excited about it!!! CLAUDE tells the surprising back story of the famous white alligator of SF’s Cal Academy. It’s about skin color, rejection, and feeling different, as well as tolerance, inclusion, and finding your place. It’s also going to be ADORABLY illustrated by the amazing Jennifer M. Potter! Yay! Look for it in fall 2020!
Come join the launch party for my second picture book, TO LIVE ON AN ISLAND, about the joys, and challenges, of growing up on one of the San Juan Islands, off Washington State. Details below.
