The Desert Beneath the Sea

Q: What gave you the idea for THE DESERT BENEATH THE SEA?

A: Dr. Eugenie Clark (The “Shark Lady”) told me fascinating stories about the creatures who live in the sandy bottom of the coral reef – jumping sand grains, the strange razor fish, slinky garden eels. This book also tells you how scientists work, and it’s also the story of our friendship. Eugenie and I made many scuba dives to write this book together.

We're staking out a burrow to watch what creatures appear.
