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.
