Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Thank you, Chris, for inviting me to be a guest on your blog today. Itโ€™s a real pleasure to have an opportunity to meet some of your followers!


When I was five years old, there were two things I loved more than anything else in the worldโ€”reading and wildlife.

My love of reading led to a profound desire to become a writer, but that was thwarted early on by well-meaning (but possibly misguided) parents who thought it a foolish career path. Had I been a child of a more recent era, I might have rebelled, but in the 40s and early 50s, that behavior wasnโ€™t quite so common.

Happily, my love of wildlife was allowed to run amuck, and has played an important role in my life, in one form or another, ever since. From being a volunteer at the Florida Audubon Society and the Central Florida Zoo, toโ€ฆ

    • Thanks, Robbie! It was fun to take a break from all the hullabaloo going on around this place, and share a few tidbits with Chris. Hope you enjoyed the post! ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. That was a terrific post. Next time I am in Florida, I want to kayak your river. I did do a tour last February on a pontoon boat with my husband, but knew there was so much more a paddler could see. I hope your books are doing well and that you have a great 2018.

    • Thanks so much!! I’m very glad you enjoyed the post, and I hope you get a chance to kayak the St. Johns, and some of the smaller tributaries like my favorites, Rock Springs Run, and the Wekiva River. SO much to see and enjoy!

      And thanks for the well wishes for 2018. I hope your year is a great one, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค


    • Thanks, Kass. I don’t have one scheduled yet, and I’m guessing it might not be until fall, since my calendar is pretty well booked through spring and summer. Heck, even a few in the fall, though I do have some time open. Doug had to keep the boat moored for weeks and weeks until the water level went down, and we haven’t had a chance to put our heads together for another one. However, if you want to come down when there’s not one scheduled, I might be able to go along as a fellow passenger, just for fun. ๐Ÿ˜€

        • I’m actually loving this weather, except for it killing my plants. But since Irma had already killed 90% of them, even that’s not a big deal this year. Generally, though, I like it to stop in the HIGH 30s, not the low. ๐Ÿ˜€ On the boat, however, the breeze makes it a lot cooler, so yep. Warmer would work well. Let me know when you think you might have an opportunity, and I’ll see if I can do it. I may be a wee bit busy in June though. (Announcement coming soon). But June is starting to get too hot. ๐Ÿ˜€ March, April, May, those are the very best times. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you can make it happen.
