The original version of this book was handbound volume, which the author prepared for an 8th grade master works project for Black Pines Circle in Berkeley in 2012. As such, the book reflected the author's long-time interest in writing, marine biology, paleontology, art, and photography. (Indeed, Lorena's interest in marine biology had already been long-term by eight grade: she had learned the Hawaiian names of fish by the age of 2, had assisted with data collection on hammerhead shark feeding at 5, and had photographed her first moray eel while snorkeling at age 8). To produce the book, Lorena made numerous trips to Capitola and to the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, took a bookbinding class, learned the stippled ink drawing technique, and corresponded via email with Frank Perry whose book Fossil Invertebrates and Geology of the Marine Cliffs at Capitola, California was a major inspiration for this one.

About the Author:

Lorena Paras is a young author from Northern California with passionate interests in the arts and sciences. Fossil finding has always been a favorite activity, one of many providing depth to her relationship with the Monterey Bay, nearby coastal beaches and sloughs. Several of her interests will be obvious from the pages of this book: photogra- phy, drawing, and discovery particularly the dis- covery of things that give her a window into the lives of life forms around her. Behind the scenes she enjoys hiking her beautiful coastal beaches, do- ing art with talented local artists, and chatting up the resident scientist. While this book was created during her 8th grade studies at a Berkeley middle school, at the time of publication Lorena is a junior at Berkeley High School.
