About the Author

Bridget Asbury's love for writing started at an early age, when she wrote her first play about a haunted house. Throughout her childhood, she continued to write, and perform in school plays and talent shows, even acting professionally in a H.C. Anderson play in Odense, Denmark. In college she continued her theatrical endeavors and directed A Christmas Carol at Rutgers University.

Upon graduation, Bridget worked for talent agents and casting directors in NYC for Broadway, TV, and film. She worked in the casting department on the movie, Die Hard: With a Vengeance, starring Bruce Willis. Later, she received the Telly Award for writing and directing her independent film, Life's Like a Movie.

She created the Turtle Tree Schoolhouse series to motivate her children to read. She wanted to combine their love of turtles, with diverse and uncommon animals, such as scorpions, toucans, and luna moths. It was important to convey a positive message to encourage them to trust their intuition and make meaningful decisions in life.
