About the Authors

Bette A Stevens

Inspired by nature and human nature, author Bette A. Stevens is a retired elementary and middle school teacher, a wife, mother of two and grandmother of five. Stevens lives in Central Maine with her husband on their 37-acre farmstead where she enjoys reading, writing, gardening, walking and reveling in the beauty of nature. She advocates for children and families, for childhood literacy and for the conservation of monarch butterflies—an endangered species (and for milkweed, the only plant that monarch caterpillars will eat).

Stevens is the author of Amazing Matilda, an award-winning picture book; The Tangram Zoo and Word Puzzles Too!, a home/school resource incorporating hands-on math and writing; and Pure Trash, the short story prequel to her debut novel, Dog Bone Soup, a Boomer’s coming-of-age story set in 1950s and '60s New England.

He is an eleven year resident of Maine and currently lives in Fairfield along with his wife and furry friends. He wrote the “Children of Eden” series and has a long line of future works in progress.
