12 months

What inspired you to write the book?
I was inspired by my Granddaughter Molly's imagination. We often walked together in the woods and the animals there fascinated her...namely the squirrels

Talk about the writing process. Did you have a writing routine? Did you do any research, and if so, what did that involve
I do not have a typical routine. I write whenever ideas and thoughts enter my mind.  My  imagination is like a jig saw puzzle.  Sometimes the pieces do not always fall into place easily.

What do you hope your readers come away with after reading your book?
More than just the story.  I hope to send a message that will encourage children to hear adult warnings not as constraints, but as critical details meant to ensure a fun, safe and enjoyable experience. 

Excerpt from book:  
 Nutty the squirrel and his friends fidgeted.  It was the last day of school and they had great plans for the summer.  "Now don't forget.  Be careful.  Don't wander off by yourself.  Remember the buddy system."  Mrs. Hoot their teacher said. "And stay away from the Dark Forest.  It's dangerous!"
