Hidden Easter Eggs In My Book : Part 3

Here we are at the third and final Easter egg in The Tale of Eartha the Sea Turtle. Unfortunately I don’t know who to credit with this one. I recall someone telling me this, but I don’t recall who.

In the story, people gather on the beach to see Eartha’s release back into the great wide ocean. One of the people on the beach, has a camera, and dark hair. Yup, you guess it, that’s suppose to be me!

The book is based on a real rescued and released sea turtle and I was there for the release, so it’s only logical that I end up in the story. Well, that’s it for official Easter eggs.

Wait? Did I say official Easter eggs? What about unofficial Easter eggs? Here are a few other truths about the illustrations.

  • Moonfeather was based on a real Lakota woman who taught me about Native American Spirituality. Consequently, our cat Kota’s real name is Lakota.
  • The bunny on the last page with Moonfeather is a tribute to PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The bunny symbol on products usually means they are not tested on animals.
  • Jolly Roger is the name of a real loggerhead sea turtle that was at the Loggerhead marinelife center with Eartha.

So, will my next book have Easter eggs in it. Most likely, but I’m still not sure what they will be at this time.

I hope you enjoyed this series, and you enjoyed the book.
