|About the Book|
Beneath the Trees is a compilation of expository essays that were written for an advanced creative writing class at Florida Atlantic University. The themes in each essay address humorous anecdotes of the authors life and experiences that have a lighthearted story behind them. The topics are universal and relate to all ages. The journey begins with events from childhood to motherhood and everything in between. The title for the book is taken from a familiar childrens song--Teddy Bears Picnic--but symbolizes the authors passion for sitting under a tree with a yellow pad and writing stories.
