I’m a nature videographer, blogger, &
children’s book author.

My forthcoming picture book, If You Wake a Skunk, will be released by Sleeping Bear Press in spring, 2023. If you like, you can preorder the book now on Amazon, at bookshop.org, or at any bookseller. Here’s a peek at the cover, featuring fantastic art by illustrator Florence Weiser.

I haven’t caught a skunk on camera, but there’s always something wild going on in my little patch of west Michigan wood. Visit my blog for videos and stories about birds and other critters who share their neighborhood with me. Each post features one or more short video clips of something I saw that surprised me, amused me, or made me say wow. My posts include recommendations for related kids’ books, and you’ll find separate pages with many more suggested nature-related picture books and other children’s literature.
