This book is a compilation of the fascinating history and the jeweled yet fragile present, of a beach located in Fort Bragg, California, called Glass Beach. A haven for sea glass collectors everywhere, the inspiration for writing this book came from the author's experiences within the network at www.seaglasslovers.ning.com, and seaglassartists.ning.com - where she discovered an amazing array of people who shared and increased her own near-obsession with sea glass.

The author has had a life long love of birds and the outdoors. Photography seemed like a great idea during physical therapy, and so, she began carrying a camera around with her everywhere she would hike, rock climb, beach comb and wildlife watch. Over 5000 photos later and she finally decided to put some together in a book to share, "Diary of a Canada Goose. The Glass Beach - A Sea Glass Lover's Paradise book came about purely by accident, through her love of photography and collecting sea glass. Her knowledge of flora and fauna has earned her such jobs as naturalist, writer, and artist. She's been a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator, taking in many different species of birds and mammals spanning the years from 1986-2003. Currently she resides on the northern California coast with her son, five birds and hundreds of books, dividing her time between reading, writing, photography, and walking, with her church-related work as secretary, clerk, worship leader, and soup kitchen director.
