Flying in Shadows is book 2 in the Black Creek Series. I am humbled and overwhelmed the sales and interest thus far. A friends-turn-lovers story, the novel is about a conservation biologist and a land developer who have been best friends and clashed heads since they were kids. Now, with mounting danger on their heels they have to find common ground to stay together and stay alive.
Much of the inspiration regarding the scenes involving eagles came from the Center for Conservation Biology (CCB) and their work with the eagles along the East coast. Biologist, Libby Mojica, was kind enough to read an Advance Reading Copo of Flying in Shadows for authenticity regarding the facts I used. I have to say I was scared to death. Luckily, with a few corrections I was given not only a stamp of approval but lovely words of praise about this romantic suspense. Ms. Mojica explained that she, “…read the book within days of receiving it. It was excellent. Suspenseful, romantic…” I’m truly honored.
I am beginning to get into the habit of promoting non-profit organizations and am finding much gratification from it. For the month of March, I am donating 10% of the Flying in Shadows proceeds to CCB.
Here are a few words from Ms. Mojica about their amazing organization:
The mission of The Center for Conservation Biology, through all of its diverse programs, is to provide the global community with the information needed to drive thoughtful, science-based conservation, to educate and train the next generation of conservation scientists, and to make lasting contributions to the natural world through critical thinking, innovation, and ground-breaking research.
CCB works with a diverse mix of avian species including raptors, shorebirds, waterbirds, songbirds, waterfowl, and seabirds. Since the 1960’s, researchers at CCB have worked to conserve Bald Eagles and monitor the species comeback after the era of DDT. In 2007, CCB received the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s Recovery Champion Award in recognition of their contribution to the recovery of the species in the Chesapeake Bay region.
CCB continues to monitor the health of Bald Eagle populations in the Chesapeake Bay with annual nest surveys, banding activities, and GPS-satellite tracking. To learn more about CCB, please visit their website www.ccbbirds.org
