Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
a photo collection of prairie scenes and sunrises.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
that putting words and photos together for others to enjoy brings much satisfaction. Each project undertaken teaches the author/artist new ways to express themselves.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
I am proud of my home prairie state, Illinois.

I choose to write and show photos of the outdoor region where I live in the Chicago suburbs. This is to honor those who have worked so hard to restore prairies, wetlands, and forest lands. By telling others about the outdoors, I hope to bring awareness and support to their efforts.

"The Floral Prairie" is a photo collection of native prairie plants I have encountered in the outdoors.
