The day it all started was a brilliant summer day in 2013 at Breezy Point Beach where I observed so many jellyfish. On my way home, I thought about how Andrea (one of my daughters) was stung by a jellyfish years earlier at Sandy Point State Park. That was when I decided to start writing my first children’s story, Jordan the Jellyfish, in the Chesapeake Bay Adventure series.
