About the author
Robin Huestis Prak lives on Bald Head Island, NC, where her passion for the island's wildlife and her adoration of Ellie the rat terrier moved her to create a book featuring Ellie and the endangered loggerhead sea turtles. When Robin isn't accompanying her husband, Mark, and Ellie on walks (aka squirrel hunts), she is photographing birds and other wild creatures (including her four grandchildren), singing at the Village Chapel, cross-stitching the youngest grandchild's Christmas stocking, reading, playing the piano, or pretending to caddy for Mark (there are birds on the golf course, so she takes her camera).
