Welcome to my website!

When I was a kid, I spent most of my time outdoors – running, swinging, exploring the woods with my siblings, playing hide-and-seek past dark with the neighbors. It was fun. It was exciting. Nature was the best playground ever!
Guess what? It still is! That’s what I want to share with you – the great outdoors – when I write about birds and dogs and all the fabulous adventures and people you’ll find outside. I hope everything on this site, every Bob White Birder Murder Mystery you read, and everything you learn about how I was Saved by Gracie, inspires you to get back outdoors – #getoutsidehappy! – and that it leaves you laughing!

Happy Fall
