On a spectacular sunny May afternoon, we held a private luncheon at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. The gathering was in celebration of my new book and animated series –both called Wild Moms, and it was generously put on by both by publisher Pegasus Books and my production company Seeker.

Not only was the event a tremendous amount of fun, I really enjoyed the beautiful vibe of the city itself – especially the gorgeous old University buildings! Here’s my talk, I’m quite proud of it. Enjoy!

I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve teamed up with Pegasus Publishing in New York for another book project! The next book in the WILD series will be WILD MOMS – The Astonishing and Complicated World of Motherhood in the Animal Kingdom. Here’s the thing: everyone has a mom. The job of raising offspring is varied and vast. In raising my own children I often found myself wondering – how do other animal moms deal
