I have forever been excited about anything feathered, particularly those of the duck, goose and swan variety. By the age of thirteen, I was lucky enough to start my own collection, breeding various species of these charismatic & cheeky birds. Eight years later after graduating from university my affection had grown even stronger. At which point, I was eager to share this passion through writing a combination of informative and story-based books to inspire the upcoming generation to fall in love with nature.
I hope you enjoy the first book in the Down at the Duckpond series.
