Author Description

Emily Ehlers Has Been Writing, Drawing, Speaking, Loving And Learning About The Natural World For Approximately 275 Years. Or 33, If You Want To Get Super Specific About It. Ems Superpower Is Taking Heavy Environmental Issues And Making Them Feel… Lighter. Less Terrifying. More Hell-Yes-Lets-Do-This-Thing. While She Knows That The Planet Is In A Spot Of Human-Driven Bother, She Also Feels That Running Around Screaming ?WE?RE ALL GOING TO DIE? Is As Motivating As A Kick To The Shins. Back In 2018 She Found Herself Upset With The Messaging Around Issues Of Sustainability. It Was All Doom, Gloom And Algal Bloom. Even She, A Bona Fide Eco Geeko, Felt Devastatingly Deflated. So She Decided To Try A Different Tact. She Would Try Her Best To Give ?Going Green? A Rebrand And Focus On Solutions And Story-Telling, Add In A Squeeze Of Hope And (Of Course) A Generous Dollop Of Humour. Oh? And Puns. Definitely More Puns.
