Okay so I really dropped the ball on consistent monthly Non-Fiction by Non-Men interviews since my book came out but hey that doesn’t mean I am any less excited about this conversation with Robin Lee Carlson!!!
Robin Lee Carlson is a natural science writer, illustrator, and the author of The Cold Canyon Fire Journals, a close study of fire ecology in the Western environment based on six years’ careful observation, research, and illustration at Stebbins Cold Canyon Reserve, which burned in 2015 and again in 2020. After studying evolutionary biology at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Chicago, Carlson spent many years working on stream habitat restoration projects in California. She is most interested in how landscapes and ecological communities change over time, especially ecosystem dynamics after disruption. Her artwork is grounded in observing and documenting the world around her as it unfolds. Visit her website at www.robinleecarlson.com.
