From the Publisher:

Stephanie Lisa Tara credits an overactive imagination for her whimsical, story-verse style. As a child, Stephanie transformed people and pets into animated personalities through fanciful lyrical rhymes. No one was safe!

Stephanie earned a B.A. in English literature and poetry at the University of Connecticut. She spent the next ten years writing ad copy in Manhattan. After the birth of her daughter, Madeline, Stephanie decided to focus on her passion--children's verse, which she deeply believes has the inherent power to charm, inspire, and teach children and adults alike. Tying verse together with insight means magic for Stephanie. Her work is inspired by literature's lauded children's authors--from Grimm to Lear to Seuss.

From the Author:

One night in 2001, about a month after I brought baby Madeline home from the hospital, I noticed something quite strange on the beach in front of our south Florida home.

It was late and Mom was tired, doing a last-one-of-the-day bottle feeding on the deck after a long day of new mom activities. As Maddie slurped down the final ounce of her formula with that familiar glup, glup, glup sound, I noticed dark, tiny shapes scurrying across the sand.

What was this? I wondered and went down for a closer look. There they were! Baby turtles streaming out of hundreds of small nests, gentle rises in the sand were their markers. The babies made fanciful patterns in the sand as they dashed on little green legs in a remarkable race to the sea. I watched them hop, one by one, into welcoming waves that sparkled under the beautiful moonlight. "I'm coming Mama..." they seemed to be saying, and I realized that I was witnessing one of nature's sacred events, the love bond between mother and child.

It is this precious feeling that inspired me to write I'll Follow the Moon, that came into being a few years later. With love, Stephanie Lisa Tara
