Having a debut book come out has been distracting for my writing, but I hope to finish a few ideas I've been working on in coming months. Then it's up to agent and publisher! Happy day to you:)(less)

Hi Paige,

Thanks so much for letting me know you enjoyed my book! Many people and situations inspired the characters and plot. The main idea came to me after I watched a movie called 'Pan's Labyrinth.' In that story, a little girl gets immersed in a strange fantasy while she's going through a harrowing situation. I loved the idea of fantasy helping a child deal with trauma. I decided to set the story in my familiar world of bird biology. (I used to work as an avian biologist.)

The messages you found in the book are right on! And yes, I did want to write a book that helped readers feel hopeful about cancer, depression, family dysfunction, and childhood trauma. I've experienced those things myself or gone through them with friends or family.

Thanks again for writing! I wish you happy reading!

Cheers,
Glendy(less)

“People think they have to say something, and it never makes me feel better.” “I know. I’ve decided language isn’t as advanced as we think it is. We’re still apes trying to express our thoughts with grunts while most of what we want to communicate stays locked in our brains.”
Glendy Vanderah, Where the Forest Meets the Stars

“sometimes bad things happen to make good things happen.”

“The horrific crush of humanity on my soul. Haven’t you ever felt it?” “I think I have—in Walmart.” “Yes! That place is the worst!”
