Countdown to Publication: Fun Fact 40--One Moa Animal in the Countdown

The Girl Who Fell From the SkyThe last animal you might want to no-a-bout (read know about) before you read The Girl Who Fell From the Sky is the moa (read mo-a). The moa was a flightless bird of New Zealand that looked something like an ostrich.The moa was hunted into extinction.

Now, what do these extinct animals have to do with the book? Full disclosure: they are not characters in the book.  But they are all subjects of paintings created by the character Aunt Loretta.  My friend, the talented artist and sculptor Bethany Fancher, introduced me to these animals from her work which you can learn more about at her website and for sale here.
