I fell in love with Florida (old conch house Florida, that is) as a kid reading books under a fan on my grandpa's porch overlooking the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers. The bond grew stronger years later during exciting days fishing and diving with my husband and children in the Florida Keys; and stronger still up in Indian River County where our house on stilts faced the Atlantic Ocean out the front door and the Indian River out back.

I didn't write for kids at first. For years, the bulk of my writing was for business. Then I got the chance to teach fifth-grade language arts at a wonderful school in Florida, where my students inspired me to write a story just for them. "Red, Right, Return" keeps three things in mind: 1) exciting boat day

“The sea answers all questions, and always in the same way; for when you read in the papers the interminable discussions and the bickering and the prognostications and the turmoil, the disagreements and the fateful decisions and agreements and the plans and the programs and the threats and the counter threats, then you close your eyes and the sea dispatches one more big roller in the unbroken line since the beginning of the world and it combs and breaks and returns foaming and saying: "So soon?"
