1958, City of Milwaukee, corner of Beckett and Glendale Avenues,
beside my house - I'm on the right.
My brother and my neighbor and I are sitting on a sewer cover, making mud pies.
Glendale Avenue is behind us, before the concrete went in.
How a book gets a start
I’m a writer and a nature nut. In 2013, with five books published, I realized that none of them were the book I really wanted to write.
I felt inspired to write a book about young people and nature. But where to start? . . . Fiction? . . . Nonfiction? . . . A combination of the two? I shared my conundrum with a nature-loving friend, Mike Larson, visitor services manager at the Urban Ecology Center (UEC).
He suggested, “Why don’t you come to Riverside? We’ll walk around and talk about your ideas.”
