I'm an amateur naturalist and illustrator working in southern Indiana. I serve on the board of the South Central Chapter of the

Indiana Native Plant Society and Indiana Native Seed Communities, and volunteer with Sycamore Land Trust

The children's book Wake Up Woods was sponsored by the

Indiana Native Plant Society. It can be purchased through, where you can direct the sale to your local independent bookstore. If you're interested in note cards you may contact me directly through email or by filling out the form below.

Thank you and kind regards - GH
