Interview with the Author

Question: Why did you write Into the Rainforest?

Answer: I wrote the book for my children and their friends. They love reading books like the Never Girls and the Magic Treehouse series. I wanted to write something similar. While there are no fairies, there is magic and adventure in the books.

Question: Where did you get the idea?

Answer: The idea for Into the Rainforest came from the bedtime stories I would tell our kids. Those stories were always about a baby jaguar and a crazy green parrot who were always getting into trouble.

Question: What will the other books in The Lost City Series be about?

Answer: My first answer is that you’ll have to wait and see. But I can say that the lost city of Yanopacho has many secrets, and the girls and their friends will play an important part in discovering them.
