First Draft of New Book is Done!

I am happy to report the first draft of my new book is done!  Thanks to my sister, Diana, for submitting the winning book title.

This book is intended for beginning rock hounds who want to learn more about geology and rocks.  General information about Earth science is included as are innovative graphics which explain concepts in as simplest terms possible.  

The book features seventeen learning activities and exercises to help readers test their knowledge and understanding.  The pages are laminated in a material compatible with dry erase markers so the exercises can be done over and over again.
