(Mary Woodbury, pen Clara Hume)
I run Dragonfly.eco, a place to find meaningful stories about our natural world and humanity’s connection with it. I’m also a writer and am the author of Back to the Garden (Moon Willow Press, 2014), Bird Song: A Novella (Dragonfly Pub, 2020), and Finn’s Tree Alphabet (Dragonfly Pub, 2021). Upcoming is the sequel to Back to the Garden, The Stolen Child (2022). I’m also a contributing author to Wild Tales from the River (Stormbird Press, 2018). I’m part of the core writer team at Artists and Climate Change and have guest-posted at Chicago Review of Books, Ecology Action Centre’s Magazine, ClimateCultures.net, Free Word Centre, SFFWorld, and Fjord’s Review. My articles have been translated at Chinese Science Writers Association and Zest Letteratura Sostenibile. I’m a graduate of Purdue University, where I received two degrees: English and anthropology.
