It Happened on Marco Island!

Once upon a time, an adorable burrowing owl was seen hanging around the Marco Town Center a little too long, in hopes to be rescued from danger. Thankfully, that lucky little owl landed in the right place at the right time.

I'm excited to announce my very first book - An Authentic Adventure with a Marco Island Burrowing Owl! Not only was this true owl adventure written by a Marco Islander (me!), it features familiar Marco Island establishments and was published by Joanne Tailele of Simon Publishing of Naples, FL. This exciting story is sure to entertain Marco Island locals and visitors of all ages, especially those who enjoy looking out for our burrowing owls.

A portion of the proceeds from this story will be donated to the Marco Island Owl Watch of Audubon Western Everglades, the AWEsome heroes of the story who came to save the day! To learn more about AWE and support their efforts to protect our burrowing owls from the dangers they face in the wild, visit FL or email

An Authentic Adventure with a Marco Island Burrowing Owl is a fun, quick read to enjoy with family and friends, and a great keepsake full of photos of the cute little owls you see around the island. You can't make this stuff up, and it's an absolute hoot!
