I had a book in mind about green sea turtles for well over 10 years while working, being a single parent, and furthering my education. During this time, I would do a bit of research, here and there, and record the bits of information along with saving websites full of information on these turtles and others.
While working on my Doctor of Education degree, the end goal was more than writing the dissertation and earning my degree through the many tedious, exacting levels of steps to the end of the journey. One end goal that I truly looked forward to beginning was my first book on little green sea turtles so that young children, parents, and teachers could enjoy the character’s journey in life, what she learned, what her life cycle included (the adventures), and more.
So, one of my personal rewards for the doctoral degree was writing this wonderful book.
