Trouble at Turtle Pond has moved to the short list for The Nature Generation’s 2023 Green Earth Book Award! Ahhh! I’m very proud to see this title here among five incredible eco-themed novels for kids.

The tiny Blanding’s turtle hatchlings that started as a classroom and community science project with my son, and then turned into a book idea, and then turned into a book, have come a long, long way. I am grateful for all the people – and turtles – who have contributed to this book along its journey so far!
