Her latest project was researching and developing the Aquatic Birds Coloring Book with her husband Larry Elson. This joint project took over five years of research and exploration. Both having a love and fascination with birds, especially aquatic birds, led to their desire to write a book for birders and lifelong learners that would be interesting and more in-depth than just knowing a bird from its looks and sounds.
