Shout out to the two amazing women, who, when asked, were kind enough to take a photo of Dawn, who has been to the challenger deep, and me, humble picture book author! I thought the drive to and from the Cape in rain and traffic was scary!

I had the absolute honor to meet Stace Beaulieu, biological oceanographer and fellow Tharpophile, in Woods Hole. It was a complete surprise. I was so happy to be able to sign a copy of MARIE'S OCEAN for her. Click here to learn more about Dr. Beaulieu's work and her undersea explorations in the deep sea submersible, Alvin.

Deep Sea Dawn is the first Black person to visit the Challenger Deep, in the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point of Earth's seabed. That's 35, 876 feet folks! That's deeper than any of our planet's highest mountain peaks. Mt. Everest is a mere 29,032 feet. Here's the bravest woman I know with the explorer, Victor Vescovo during her Challenger Deep Expedition.
