About the author
After retiring from the corporate world, Carol Story began volunteering for various causes. One of her favorite volunteer jobs was walking the beach in Stratford, Connecticut for the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds, where she helped monitor the piping plovers, least terns, common terns and American oystercatchers nesting there. She would share her observations with her mother, who had long been interested in birds. After her mother's death and at the suggestion of a friend, she wrote "Ellie's Day at the Shore" as a way to tie together her mother's memory with her volunteer work. Carol lives in Connecticut and currently volunteers at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport.
