    September 2022 Newsletter Reprint – A Quiet Reflection

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo and welcome back to my camo jeep. So good to have you spend a minute or two with me and our imaginations. The camo jeep could double as a magic carpet. We won’t see rooftops, but we’ll get a birds-eye-view of nature’s gift – animals in their own environment. Thank you for this stunning photograph, @beverlyjoubert. Over 30 years, filmmakers and Nat Geo Explorers at Large Beverly and Dereck Joubert have dedicated their lives to halting the decline of big cats in the wild.

    May 2022 Newsletter Reprint – The Boabab Tree and Me

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo. A huge welcome back to my Untamed Unexpected Unforgettable safari. At this time of year particularly, my bi-continental inclinations and my *baobab tree existence, become significantly confusing. When May rolls in, my northern hemisphere world is budding and alive. In our home in Florida, there is an abundance of babies. Wee birds learning to fly, baby squirrels learning the rules of the road, and recently sparse trees have become gloriously abundant with the promise of more leaves on the way. But May in the southern hemisphere is quite different. Everything is dying. Trees are dismally bare; animals are putting final touches on their plans for…

    April 2022 Newsletter Reprint – Let’s Celebrate Friends

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo and welcome to my camo jeep. Thank you for spending time to celebrate the privilege of having “Zebra” the novel released as an AUDIO BOOK with me. Isn’t it fabulous to hear Peter Noble through the jeep’s speaker system?   Zebra Audiobook Jill Wallace – YouTube Thank you to the lovely Pauline Baird Jones for creating this adorable video for me! To say Peter is ‘narrating’ “Zebra” (the audio) is a dismal understatement. This famous talent, winner of The Audie and The Rone is ‘LIVING’ “Zebra”. Peter Noble’s incredible ear for accents, and his innate ability to bring characters to life, makes for a mesmerizing…
