Lynda Graham-Barber can trace the roots of her love affair with books and nature back to her girlhood pond, a few acres away from her family home, in western Pennsylvania. For countless hours Lynda sat on the banks, reading, writing, and exploring the natural world. Here the great blue heron speared fish; the tree swallows dipped and dived for insects; and the fox, kits at her side, sniffed the air. While still in high school, Lynda began working at the local library, shelving books. It's here that she discovered the nature writings of Aldo Leopold, John Burroughs, Henry Beston and, of course, Henry David Thoreau. Lynda is a degree candidate for a master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College. 2008 marks a collaborative book project with illustrator, Nancy Carol Willis. The Animals’ Winter Sleep brings Lynda’s lyrical writing to very young children.
