About the Author
Kimberly Ridley has been with Hope from its first issue. A science journalist by training, she writes primarily about "solution seekers"--people who tackle society's problems by working to create positive and viable alternatives. Her articles on public health, nature, sustainability, and other topics, most of which have focused on "what works," have appeared in a number of publications including the Boston Globe. After a decade in the Boston area, she moved back to Maine, her home state, where she is Editor of Hope magazine. She sustains her own sense of hope by seeking wonder in the wild places around her home.
Rebekah Raye is an artist beloved for her bird and animal paintings and sculpture, derived from her affinity with the natural world around her studio in East Blue Hill, Maine. In Rebekah's words, "My early interest in animals of all kinds continues to be the focus of my painting and sculpture. Our pet chickens, geese, and cats--as well as the wild fox, bobcat, crows, and deer--are my inspiration. The more I learn about the animals I paint, the more I understand how we are all related." Rebekah's award-winning children's books include The Very Best Bed, Bear-ly There, The Secret Pool, and Swimming Home, all published by Tilbury House.
