Meet My Creators
Meet Sheryl Davis, Eric Summers, and Daniel Fiore. I would not be me without them. Sheryl thought it would be great to have someone who could show kids how they can help the environment. She gave me the very important job of explaining why we should all pitch in and do our parts.
She also made me a Superhero!
Eric Summers took Sheryl’s vision and with a little computer magic, he made me come to life, and gave me Superhero status with this epic red cape! Then, artist Daniel Fiore came along and added beautiful ink and watercolor images to our Activity Guide. Thanks, guys!
Between the three of them, The Mystical Magical Abracadabracal Daniel McDougal McDouglas McFly book was born!
“Excellent children’s book! Five Stars.” -Amazon Customer
Meet The Author Sheryl Davis
I spent most of my childhood climbing trees & building forts in the Piney Woods region of East Texas.
A rich family history of biology-inspired in me such interests as gardening, foraging, taxonomy & bird watching. I am also a licensed Ham Radio operator (KE5QFE).
In the Spring of 2012, along with some friends, I helped throw the sustainability festival, Learning Man in which members of the Austin tribe could exchange skills. In 2015, I worked with the Eco-Community, Quilombo Paixao, to host a successful Educational Expo called Orenda & a Permablitz in Cedar Creek, TX.
I was awarded a scholarship to complete my Permaculture Design Certificate in the Fall of 2014 & have worked on numerous eco-farmlets & non-profit organizations around the central Texas area such as Food is Free, Blue Star Ranch & Thigh High Gardens. I most recently worked with Resolution Gardens where I did garden installations, basic carpentry, light masonry, and landscaping.
For years I have wondered how to make the biggest impact on the world with regard sustainability and environmental health.
I have come to realize that communicating with the younger generations through books, activities and projects is the best way for me to make a difference that counts.
I have been called to practice & teach Permaculture to help catapult the environmental health movement into the forefront of modern society.
