I am an independent dental hygienist working from my home, in the countryside of Eastern Ontario, Canada. Over the last 35 years I have encouraged hundreds of children to embrace their oral health. Many kids today are starting to understand the concept of a HEALTHY MOUTH FOR A HEALTHY BODY. What an excellent motivator!
In 2013 I raised Chelsea, the little red squirrel who inspires me to write children's stories. When I released her into the giant oak tree, she was only 11 weeks old.
Owning an independent dental hygiene practice, interacting with Chelsea, observing life in the giant oak tree, are the magical components that have prompted me to write The Treetop Tooth Shop story.
Mother Nature has so much to offer us and I feel honoured to share stories that embrace her presence. Developing an understanding of the squirrel world has been a true gift! They are SO interesting and entertaining to watch!
I look forward to sharing more stories and adventures in the Chelsea Squirrel series.
