REAL LIFE CHARACTERS
LIVING THE BEACH LIFE
In 2008, I relocated to the amazing Island of St Kitts. I founded St. Kitts Sailing School. During the time the school was in operation myself and my sailing school students interacted with and cared for the characters in this series. They are all very close to my heart. My life has been filled with an abundance of funny stories and antics that come along with sharing a beach with four very different animals who forged very unlikely friendships. I love the island on which I live and the animals for which I have cared for. These life experiences along with help and encouragement from a very talented author, editor and publisher, Carol Mitchell led me to create the series – Living the Beach Life. The children’s book series that keeps on giving. Not only do you get great books, you get Tuesday Trivia and Friday Fun Facts and Photos. Buy the series today and enjoy the fun with your little ones.
See the characters in action! Check them out in these videos.

THOUGHTS FROM TEACHERS ON SCHOOL AUTHOR VISITS
“It was great to have Heidi visit Woodholme again this year. Her classroom visits were fantastic. She responded to students on an individual level and was able to answer their questions. During the grade level assemblies, Heidi shared her books and power point, she shared information about the writing process which was most helpful for students. Having an author share how she gets ideas from real life situations was very meaningful for students.” Michelle Webster, Reading Specialist, Woodholme Elementary
“What a wonderful treat for ALL our students! Heidi Fagerberg not only shared her books and invigorating tales of life on St. Kitts, she walked our students through the writing process. Often, students want to write once and be finished. Mrs. Fagerberg showed them how true authors work with others and make revisions to their work over and over to get the story just right! Our students realized what goes into writing a book and how they can use events from their own lives and share them in new and interesting ways. I highly recommend Mrs. Fagerberg to visit your school to read her books! She entertained, informed, and engaged our students, 1st-5th grade alike, so that they left her excited and ready to pick up a pencil to write!”
