    1. Thanks for thinking of us! Hopefully I can coordinate Jean (author of Hunting Red!) soon to answer the questions and pass the award on!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful book. And what a great way to challenge the child in us all to get outside. I am out everyday and enjoy all of nature. Lovely post.

  2. Do you publish fiction? I’ve written a series of books about a hamster who escapes and has wonderful adventures… is that the sort of thing you might be interested in?

    1. Zaden, I am a small team of one with a second, full time job. I would love to read your books, but you should publish it with someone who can market it. You might try self publishing with Kindle Direct Publishing, or you could try Anchor Book Press or Green Dragon Books. I wish you the best of luck, and thanks for reaching out. Cheers, Jean
