OK. Here goes. I write for a living. I'm a Texas Master Naturalist with the Highland Lakes chapter. I'm a self-educated spider naturalist who gives spider presentations. My husband, James Hearn, and I tend a Texas Wildscapes Wildlife Habitat Demonstration Site at our Blanco home. I blog about what I see and learn at "Window on a Texas Wildscape" (www.sherylsmithrodgers.blogpot.com). I'm absolutely wild about and amazed by God's handiwork in what we commonly call Mother Nature.
